Dan. Just curious. I had brought mine to the proper level several months ago and that really did not help my situation. Thanks.

And I think it WAS Superchief who mentioned the $700 figure. Obviously, I agree that amount would be a real rip-off. IMHO, $100-200 would be more realistic.

Boowho??
UPDATE:

Found a number on the motor, but apparently it is a pump manufacturer (MTE Hydraulics) and NOT the manufacturer of the motor itself. Contacted MTE, but they say no parts available. Do not know who manufactured the motor itself.

Anyhow, I disassembled the motor and found that the problem is that one of the brushes got so hot it bonded to the brush holder (some sort of plastic-like material); all I really need is the brush holder and 4 brushes; then I can just repair the motor and save lotsa $$$.

May have found a source of the brushes and holder on EBay; waiting for answer from seller.

Bottom line is do NOT use the EQ Sys published procedure to bleed air from the system. TWO of us now, have ruined the motor by doing it.

Boowho??

Update:

Went to Gulf Shores over the holidays. Still having some popping but there is a noticeable reduction in the amount. Seems now that after being leveled for a few hours the popping quits. Not declaring victory yet but it sure is alot more tolerable.

Can anybody here help? We stopped in Ohio on way to fl due to all the bad weather... We put the jacks down and now when getting ready to head out in the morning ... We started raising the front jacks, the left side came all the way up and the right side only came up 1/4 of way...then the control panel went completely off. We cannot figure out how to turn it back on, everything is dead at the control panel. Ugg!!

I am no expert, but had a few issues with mine. It almost sounds like perhaps two issues. Have you checked all breakers and electrical?

Is the system Lippert, if so, their tech support might be avaiable for calls after normal business hours.

Yes we have checked breakers and electrical....unless there is another set we don't know where it's at.... Would you know where the reset is for the electronic controller for the jacks . Ours is mounted on the outside of rig on drivers side. My husband says it's and LCI ELECTRONIC LEVELING ??

Here is a post that might help rule out electrical...


At one time Lippert had a LIP Sheet 0058 which described upgrading the mini-circuit breaker from 50 amp to 80 amp. However, that Lip Sheet no longer shows up on the Lippert website, so perhaps they've reconsidered that approach.

If your 50 amp breaker trips and resets repeatedly, it could be caused by several things




A weak mini-circuit breaker.
Low voltage at the battery/buss bar, including loose or corroded battery terminal connections. But you seem to have ruled this out.
Loose wires/poor electrical connections at the hydraulic pump.
Loose 12V ground from the battery negative terminal to the frame.
A bind in one of the slides (if the problem occurs with only one slide, this might be more likely).
Cold weather which affects the viscosity of the hydraulic fluid putting a greater load on the pump. Normally this shouldn't be a problem, but in combination with a marginal condition somewhere else, it could be.

Not familiar with Lippert. On my Berkshire the two front slides are hydraulic as well as the jacks. If you have hydraulic slides and they are working then the issue is probably a fuse or fusible link for the leveling system control pad. If the you have hydraulic slides and they don't work then it could be a fuse for the hydraulic pump.
