I have a Sightseer 35J (2011) and 1 of my levelers does not retract. It has been giving me problems since I've owned it (2019) and I would usually just manually pry it upward until it fully retracts. However, on my most recent outing, the only way I could get it back up was to use a vehicle jack. Any suggestions on a fix?
My PowerGear jacks each have a zerk fitting that needs to be lubricated with Lithium grease each year. During the year, I need to regularly spray each Jack with silicone spray. Yours may be different, but I know the regular maintenance can make a difference in retracting the jacks. If not already done, it could be a cheap fix.
Note: The HWH system lifts the RV under pressure. And when you press the "retract" or "Stow" button it release pressure -- and then the jack springs pull the jack cylinders up.
...Maybe your jack springs need to be replaced?
Has your RV been left in storage for long periods of time? (As in years?) ...With the springs fully extended?
I appreciate the info.... yes, the previous owner lived in the unit full-time. So, it's likely the jacks were left down quite often and for long periods of time. If the springs need replacing, where might you suggest I find replacements?
