Smile 2007 Mobile Suites Front Landing Jacks

Hi,

The front landing jacks have become inoperable. The rear jacks and all slide-outs all function as they should.

Batteries are fully charged.

When trying to raise the front jacks there is nothing. We are able to lower the front jacks.

The outside temperature is 100+.

Is there a way to override the landing jack switch????

Any help appreciated.

Larry in Spokane

On my 07 the switch failed when we were attempting to leave a campground. I raised the rear stabilizers, then accessed the switches and swapped the rear into the front position. When I got home I modified the switch panel so I could easily get to the switches next time and installed two replacement switches.

If you find the switch is not the problem there is a way to test the internal seals which can be leaking without leaving and visible sign. You can find it on the Lippert web page. Or you can email me and I'll write it, It is a long write up. I changed mine on my 05 which I think are the same as yours. They can be rebuilt by most any hydraulics shop. Let me know if you need more info.

Nothing as in no noise - clicks etc?

Do you have a touch pad or manual switches?

Jacks lower but not raise and no pump operation in the raise position sounds like a wire came undone either at the pump solenoid or the back of the switch.

The switches are plugged directly into a circuit board. You probably can't remove a switch from the front of the panel because the resistance of the six spade connectors is too much. You need to access through the hydraulic bay and remove ~8 screws holding the switch panel in place. About three of the screws are difficult to access. Then you can push the panel back and rotate it to a position that it will come out of the opening corner to corner. Then you can test the switch with a VOM.

These are the switches I replaced the originals with:

Just make sure they are the momentary on - off - momentary on style. (on) - off - (on)

"Landing Jack Problem Solved"

With the help of member "ANIJET" (Leo) I was able to repair the the inoperable front landing jacks.

The problem was a failed switch. The switch is a double throw, double pole, momentary off center position switch. On my 32TK3 it was nearly impossible to access the panel that holds the switches. But, with Leo's constant support and pictures I replaced the faulty switch. Actually, I replaced both the front and rear switches.

In summary, the panel holding the switches must be removed to access the switches. I strongly suggest that pictures should be taken and notes made to identify the wires and their respective connecting points. With the panel removed, the switches can be gently pried from the panel. Replacing the new switches requires gently pushing them onto the panel.

My personal thank you to Leo. I owe you big time; if ever our paths meet, I'll thank you personally.

I'm glad it all worked out and I could add a little support along the way.
Safe travels.

I have a 2007 Select suites 31RL3, had a similar problem, the reversing solenoid switch failed, I had a tech give me a lesson in switching the wires at the post to by pass the failed side, until we could replace the problem.
