Power Gear Jacks
« on: November 25, 2017, 08:06:33 PM »
My jacks have stopped working!  This seems to be the trip for mechanicals!  Not sure whether it is the controller, wiring etc.  The controller has been discontinued, and there is a replacement, but you need to rewire, from a switched ground to switched power.

I was checking power at the terminals at the solenoids, and one of the tabs broke off, so looks like I may need to replace it.  Not much left to attach to. 

Any clues as to where to find some of these parts?  The website doesn't seem to help much.

Looks like the coil slides on over the valve to move the fluid. 

I have been using lynx levelers to level, but I want my jacks back!

The coil should be easy, as I remember the nut on the top unscrews and the coil slips right off. Any hydraulic store can get one. I had one fail way up at Prince Edward Island, they got a replacement in a couple of days.

Old thread, but update, we were able to remove the coil and get a lead soldered on, a ll jacks work as they should be.  Could not find replacements!
