Level Jack Cease to Function - Ford Fix
We are sitting just outside of Burmingham AL in an RV park and our leveling jacks failed, we were in an up (level) position. I called my dealer who got John Armstron of FR on the phone. After looking at ever fuse in the coach John got some information from FR Engineering that you all might want to pay attention to.
The power for the Leveling Jacks and the Heated Mirrors use the same fuse, a 10 Amp, Fuse position # 38 in the fuse panel under the dash, the BIG GOTCHA is this 10 amps also runs through Diode # 2 (same panel) and it is only rater at 1- 1/2 amp. Ford is aware of the problem and has issued a fix for it, however the fix date (can we say recall) has not been issued. John sent me a copy of the Ford documentation on it, if anyone would like a copy e-mail me an I will forward you a copy.
My problem was that I hit mine by accident (the heated mirrors switch) and that fried the diode so no jacks. I guess if you don't touch that button it might be okay.
