kwikee auto leveling jacks

I have a 2006 Itasca Sunova 26p with Kwikee auto leveling jacks. All jacks deploy and retract, however the left rear jack will not deploy all the way... stops about 2-3" from level ground. Anyone have and idea as to the problem.. Thanks to all!!

There should be a reservoir underneath, probably up by the driver’s seat area. I can get to mine when the slide is out and is mostly clear so you can see the level of the fluid. It also has a dip stick to check the level. Good Luck--John

I had the same thing happen a few times and for me I found I needed to place a 2x6 or thicker under at least a couple of the other jacks. Seems as if when 3 jacks are nearly fully extended the 4th one doesn't get enough fluid to fully extend it. I'll be watching this to see what others have found. My system is not low on fluid.

Zippo, I just deployed the jacks a few minutes ago, of course the one jack was still not down... then I hit the manual down button...IT WENT DOWN. Of course, when I went to retract them, all 4 jacks did not got all the way up, so it was back and forth until I got them all to go up..

That does sound like insufficient fluid. Check your manual, but most reservoirs should have fluid 1 inch from the opening with the jacks retracted. (little finger dipping)
