2011 378 Hydraulic Jacks Popping
When up on the jacks, as in parked for the night, the jacks pop. A distinct crack that can be felt in the jack and the fitting on top, this sound sort of makes me nuts after a while.
We have noticed that if we are sitting for several days the sound seems to diminish or go away after about 2 or 3 days. This seems to come from all 4 jacks at one time or the other but has nothing to do with the jacks loosing pressure, it maintains it's level.
Has anyone heard of this?? I was reading a general posting board and someone referred to the "Lippert Alarm Clock" and this occurs when the temp's drop over night then start to go back up in the morning. Has something to do with expansion or contraction of the material in the jack cylinders - I am a skeptic on that one. Another post said the had this when leveled out on concrete, we have had it on concrete, dirt, rock and asphalt, so don't know if that applies.
Any ideas out there?
