Ignition must be "on"  as in the "accessory" position but not with engine running. Parking  brake must be fully set.  I see no reason to have the engine running and I personnally would not want it running for safety reasons when the jacks were being deployed.  I honestly do not think there is anything wrong with your jacks.   Might be a god idea as sugested to spry the entire jack set up to prevent corrosion.   Best of luck.

What are your "safety reasons" for not running the engine?

Most of the time I leave the engine running when I extent the jacks. Only later if I need to adjust the level again, I will do so without the engine running.
Is the parking brake light on or off when this is happening? I am thinking you might have a loose wire or ground wire or the brake is not setting on. The jacks system requires the brake to be on.

All is fixed now. It is 37 degrees out, not quite freezing but cold and windy. The rains stopped from yesterday so I got the gray water dump valve motor back on the valve. Thanks to Barry for his post about the gear, I called the factory and they sent me a new gear for free.

Thank you Berry.  ThankYou

Thanks fro the welcome Tom.  We live in Frederick MD.

David

Oops, I thought you lived east of Baltimore but I was wrong again.

We live in Glenwood, just of half way from Frederick to Baltimore. We do a lot of our shopping and have many friends that live in Frederick. My wife and I are both retired and have lots of free time if you want to get together some time.

I would like to help but I don't have keyless enter, sure wish I did. I don't know any thing about what Phoenix uses but my Jeep's key fob has a small watch battery that needs replacing every couple of years. I buy it at CVS. Have you checked your fob. Do you have a second fob you can test with?

Welcome David and Sharon, it is good to see another fellow Marylander in our great little group. I see you live East of Baltimore while I live west of it. I hope we get to meet sometime.

 Welcome     Welcome

I don't rotate my tires. They die of old age long before the tread wears out on them. I save the rotation fees for the new tires. ThumbsUp

If I did rotate them I would replace the extenders because they like to age in one position and rotate them makes them want to form a new position.

Ron adding air is not the problem. It is keeping the air in the tires.  LOL

I have seen where after removing the extenders they are stiff and do not go back on correctly, then they leak.

Sine 1984 I have used valve extension on my motorhomes and have only had one leak. It had been installed at the PC factory. It was like Bob said, it was at the connection. The dealer I go to for tires, which where replaced under the recent recall, always over tightens them for this reason. exactly!

...so I called Kermit and he walked me through testing to see if it was the GCFI and how to wire it properly. I had the hot wires and the load wires backward. I had the white on the silver screws and the black on the bass crews which is correct but with the two wires backward it would not work.

So WHITE=HOT???  BLACK+GROUND???  I can see how you got it backwards as that is not the way a house is wired.  White at home is always ground.  But I suppose BLACK=GROUND on the battery terminals so that must get carried throughout the rig then.

I learned something here.

Ron the black wire is the hot wire and the white is the ground. What I had backward was there are two sets of wires (one black and one white in each set), one set is the line in (hot) and the other is the line out (load) to the TVs and Kitchen sink. I hope this clears up what I wrote earlier.

I park mine next to the house on the north side facing east. After winterizing I just plug into the 30 amp on the side of the house. That way the coach  batteries stay charged up. Once every three weeks I take the PC out for a 15-20 mile spin to flex the tires, run the generator with the Heat strip on high and charge the engine battery. I keep the gas tank close if not to full so no moisture gets into the gas tank. I do not cover the PC as it is more work than I am willing to do and the custom covers never fix the class B+ correctly. The blue traps just blow in the wind and leave blue marks on the motorhome. I leave one of the roof vents cracked open just a little to allow air to flow in and out and keep the moisture from building up. I do not doing anything to the converter and or the inverter, just leave them set the way I normally do.

I have been doing it this way since 1984. It works for me but I am sure others have their own way of doing depending on where they live. If I lived in Florida, I would be camping year round and never put it away.

Ok I got the GCFI replaced and working this time. I went to the hardware store and got another GCFI and put it in. It still did not work, so I called Kermit and he walked me through testing to see if it was the GCFI and how to wire it properly. I had the hot wires and the load wires backward. I had the white on the silver screws and the black on the bass crews which is correct but with the two wires backward it would not work.
Thank you for all your help on this.

This afternoon I will look into the Auto Drain on the gray tank and see how hard it will be to replace the gear. It is a nice 65 degrees outside today, so a good day to take it apart. When I get the part it will probly be freezing. If I screw this up, I can always order a new one from Carol at the factory.
