Just a note concerning noisy jacks. The HWH factory tech recommended we spray each jack spring with ORDINARY, over the counter, WD40 to quiet that nasty squeal each would emit when being deployed or retracted. Did that and they are much quieter.

Had problem with our step as well. It would only retract when the engine was started. Bad switch. replaced same and works fine now!

See my post of May 14, 2014. I have Hydraulic HWH levelers that DO NOT automatically level coach. You have to respond to the yellow lights to level unit. If I were to purchase a new (bought this one used) I would definitely go with auto-level vice manual. I would also consider electrical vice hydraulic. Per my post, I had an issue with one leveler. On the positive side, HWH tech was very helpful in diagnosing and guiding me via telecom while I was underneath the coach troubleshooting. Hope this helps!

Just ended telecom with HWH tech. 30 mins of troubleshooting indicated the warning switch on the right (passenger) rear jack is faulty. This switch is a sealed switch comparable to the switch used on septic systems to indicate the system is overfull OR the septic pump has stopped working. The faulty jack switch caused the jack to indicate to the system  the jack was deployed when it obviously was not. Switch on way and hopefully this will solve the problem.

As a side note, the HWH technician was very patient and extremely helpful!

The HWH factory called late and I asked them to call me on Weds and together we could do some trouble-shooting. I can live with the system as is BUT I would rather have it working normally once again. My greatest fear would be to have the jacks deploy while driving. That seems unlikely. I tried to force them to deploy while idling with the emergency brake NOT activated and thankfully the system refused to deploy. So THAT part of the system seems to work just fine.

Actually I misspoke in my original post. I see RED indicator lights vice yellow. I just moved MH and deployed all jacks. After driving a  couple of yards I now have one light only illuminated which is the JACKS DEPLOYED light which resides to the left of the jack panel. Perhaps my problem is electrical after all. I have a call to the HWH factory but they haven't called me back.

Always something......

We have a 2008 PC that has HWH Hyd. Jack Levelers. A problem has cropped up and we were wondering if anyone else had the same issue. During a long trip on Tues, the yellow lite indicating that the jack(s) have deployed was activated as well as the yellow lite for the passenger site, rear jack. Since I was driving at the time I immediately stopped vehicle and checked underside. All jacks were in normal, stowed position. I hit the OFF button on jack panel and all warning lites went out and we continued on our way. As soon as I started to drive away, the same lites came on. I am able to clear the lites but, once underway, they appear again. Any thoughts? Anyone have similar problem?

Thanks in advance!!

I believe mine is a flotech but will check before I order parts. TKS for tip!

I DID get the pump to work for approx. 30 secs. I shut it off, closed grey valve, opened black valve and turned pump back on and it did not run. I CAN rotate impeller clockwise but it won't move counter clockwise without a great deal of effort. I don't want to strip the screw.

When turning screw manually with screw driver I can expel water from the pump.

Perhaps I should pull off the front pump cover and see if I can get at the inside. When it ran for approx. 30 secs it ran very well. No hesitation at all.

I successfully dumped gray/black and it worked just fine. After adding additional water to commode to give unit a post-trip scrub the pump ran and expelled some water and then froze. I used the "screw driver" trick to turn impeller screw and it does turn but is a bit tight. I turned on pump several times but she won't budge BUT the screw does move a hair so electrically the unit works. I removed the 2" (thereabouts) hose that serves as the dumping hose from the pump housing. I can look inside the pump with a flashlight but see nothing.

Can I try shooting WD40 or some other lubricant into the pump hole and see if that  allows the impeller to loosed up a bit? I believe I accidently threw some dental floss in the commode last nite and it has wound itself around the blades or shaft. Yeah I know, not smart!!


Thanks in Advance,

I have a tank heater switch on my unit but have a basic question: Does it heat ALL of the tanks on the 2900 or just the grey and black water tanks?

I too have a mascerator system that suffered a failure (twice). Both times it was a bad switch. During the second failure I was dumping during a severe storm. The lid covered switch/valve handles did not prevent rain spray from entering outside control panel. Does anyone know if the switch that controls the mascerator is waterproof????? If not, it should be.

I cut the finger tip from a surgical glove, inserted the valve "tube" into that and re-inserted the tube into the housing. THAT stopped the leak. I will have to pull the "tube" from the housing to drain the unit but that is no big deal. At least it no longer leaks.
