Thanks all - I have downloaded the Lippert manuals for hydraulic levellers and slideouts. Will see if my husband can figure it out. He had an argument with a lawn mower and lost. Nearly lost his big toe and now has a lovely 5 " pin going through the tip of his toe down to the ball of his foot. Ouch! When he is up and about will check these manuals out. Carol

We took it to a truck repair shop and they cannot find another jack to replace it. (He has been looking for 3 months)
It is an HDW - if that sounds familiar.

Does anyone know where we could look to get a replacement jack? Also we do not have an owner's manual and wonder where to get one.

You can probably tell we a newbies and need as much guidance as you can spare. We have just retired and plan to go south for the winter.

Thanks. Dan and Carol
Its probably HWH and their plant is in IowaCity, Iowa, I think. Anyway, you can google it to find the exact location. I'm sure they can find what you need.

HWH is in Moscow, IA at exit 267 on I80 east of Iowa City. I'm sure if you just contact them, they can help you.

Thanks a lot! My husband has contacted them and they are sending out a manual. Hopefully we can get this solved before November. Have a great day!

I had a similar problem on my previous coach. The jack would not retract on its own and I had to loosen the solenoid valve, following the manual retraction process, and pry it up with a bar. I eventually determined that the ram was bent and phoned HWH. They shipped me a new one. It was an easy install for any DIY'er. If they are screeching and shuddering I would bet the ram is bent and they are not repairable. They must be replaced or so I was told.
The newer Georgetowns do not use HWH jacks. Check the control panel inside the coach to see what brand they are before you phone HWH.
