2005 Winnebago Journey Jack Problem

Thanks for having me as an new member. Just bought a 2005 Winnebago Journey 36' and the front driver side jack will not extend. Can not find the pump / solenoid layout. Manual no good. Can hear the pump running but cannot find it. Any help?

Welcome ihoop! Recommendation - visit the General Maintenance section. There are several "stickies" there with links to all our diagrams, parts, etc. Great info to download and carry around with you.


To your question, look under your 2nd & 3rd entry steps for the leveler and slideout hydraulics. There is a hold down nut under the step lip, about centered. Remove that and the step hinges up for access to the hydraulic system.

OK was able to find the valves under the step and found which solenoid control the driver side front and no power. In further research I also found that it is fused by 15 amp located in the Control Box which I can not find the control box now. I have looked all around but have not gotten under the unit yet. Before I do does anyone know where this is on my 2005 Winnebago Journey?

Thanks

I think you'll find the Control Box in front of the hydraulic assembly that's under your steps--at least that's where it is on my 2005 Vectra. It has a see-through cover and is probably best accessed from underneath the front of the coach lying on the ground.

Ditto Chris -- about a 10 x10 x 5in box with a clear plastic cover just fwd of your hydraulics. With your "hood" open, you can see it, but not reach it, just under your dash air. Flat on your back does it!

Thanks ihoop and Jeff for the kind words. A work in progress. (Even if we'd bought it new, it'd still be a work in progress)

OK... I was able to get under it this afternoon after enough of the snow and ice melted. Found the box then found the F4 fuse for the left front jack and the 15 amp was blown. So I replaced it and tried the jack and it will blow every fuse I put in it. So a short somewhere. Before I start searching on my own does anybody have suggestions or have experienced this.

This site is great and thanks for the help.........

You might try giving Paul Maddox (azpete) a call. He works for HWH, is active on these forums, and seems always happy to help out fellow RVers. His number (as he has posted before) is 602 549 3638 or [email protected] .

I am attaching the service manual for my levelers. I believe you may have the same.

Part 11 of the Troubleshooting section seems to describe your issue.

Kept blowing 10 amp fuse for jacks. Passenger front and back. Repair facility replaced the solenoids. No more problems. Originally had to replace fuse to lower and bleed hydraulics at solenoid to raise. Spent a lot of time on back. Got real good at removing/installing clear plastic cover. Hope this helps.

I have a 2004 Itasca with the HWH jack system. The old actuating solenoids are notorious for shorting. I've replaced 3 of the 4 jack solenoids with new upgraded ones and expect to probably have to replace the 4th this year.
