'04 LY Leveling Jacks Stopped Working

Our '04 Land Yacht's leveling jacks dash pad won't turn on. With both chassis and coach battery switches in the "on" position and the ignition switch in the "run" position, the dash pad's light won't come on. The jacks were last used in early December without a problem.

Any thoughts would sure be appreciated.......

Well, this may seem like a silly suggestion, but did you check the fuse?

ps: nice site, the Power Gear one!

The only fuse I could find in the Airstream manual was for the jack alarm and that appeared good.

The site looks good, but info on older units is lacking; unless you have an '05 or newer Winnebago.

I would have thought there'd be a fuse listed in the Airstream manual specifically for the jacks, as in '04 they were standard equipment.

My Clipper will be different than your unit.

On the Clipper there is a fuse on the chassis safety circuit, located at the chassis battery compartment. This controls the safety override on the legs so that, when/if you put it in gear, the legs raise by default.

The control/brain box of the Power Gear System is located in the main basement, mounted on the ceiling of the compartment, forward of the fresh water tank, between the frame rails. It contains about 6 or 7 blade type fuses.

You will have to determine where you have power and go from there. Chances are you have disturbed the wire under the dash.

There also may be an "AUX" fuse in you main chassis fuse panel that may supply power to the circuit.

Another condition that has to be met for the leveling jacks to work is that the Parking Brake on the dash has to be pulled out (activated) for the jacks to work. Just a thought.

Also, I always have my motor running when I activate the jacks. I don't think I have tried it with the ignition key on, but motor not running. In summary, when I operate my leveling jacks, I start the engine, pull out the dash brake switch, then push the "on" button on the Power Gear panel.

Sam, I've tried with ignition in the "run" position, as the manual states, but also with the engine running; and nothing. Since the emergency brake is self actuating, I don't think I tried it with the dash brake switch pulled out. I will do that this afternoon; thanks for the thought.

Sam, I have to hand you this one on a Silver Platter! I pulled out the dash brake switch, and sure enough, that little green light came on; oh, what a beautiful and money saving sight! Thanks Sam, you really saved my butt on this one. The engine doesn't have to be running, just the ignition in the "run" position, but even though the parking brake is automatically engaged in Park and Neutral, the dash switch still has to be pulled out manually.

Thanks to everyone!!!

RAG, glad I could help. I learned my lesson when I got our rig home after we had purchased it used in Arkansas in 2009. The dealer went over all the systems and I felt comfortable. When we got home, I wanted to try everything, but I couldn't get the jacks to work. I read all the manuals, but they didn't help. I called the dealer and he told me the procedure.

See you down the road.

Sam
