Front Jacks Stopped Working

Hi Folks,

Have a problem and looking for suggestions.

For some reason, the front hydraulic jacks on my '04 Land Yacht 30 stopped working; last used, without issue, about 3 weeks ago.

The rear jacks work properly and the front ones make a similar sound when the in-cab button is pressed, but no movement. Actually, the sound is a little different than I remember. The fluid level is at the top when the check bolt is removed, and I see no leakage under the coach.

As always, any and all help, thoughts or direction is greatly appreciated.

Regards and safe travel to all.

Thanks for the response......

It's the Power Gear product. This is what the touchpad panel looks like:

If your hydraulic pump us working ( the noise you hear) then it's very probable that you have an issue with the electrical activation of the front extend solenoids.

Could be a wire connection issue or something more sinister....... like a problem in the control board.

RAG, mine acted up one time. One set of jacks would work and the other would not. I activated the switch by the door to put the coach in "store" mode (disconnected the batteries). I left the switch off for a couple of minutes and then turned back on. The jack system then wortked OK. I likened it to rebooting a computer system. It worked for me.
