Default power gear Dewald manual leveling system

Good Morning all my motor home friends!!!
I have a power gear manual leveling system.I turn on power on control panel.Use my control buttons to drop jacks.Nothing happens.No pump running or any sound whatsoever.I go back to :retract jacks: control and push up.Pump runs but obviously wont do anything as jacks are fully retracted allready.I have checked all my fuses in box on drivers side of my Gulfstream Friendship and also pulled Power Gear control panel and checked in line fuse and this fuse is intact.Am I missing a fuse somewhere ? Could really use some help and hoping someone has had this problem who might enlighten me so as to remedy.As always,thanks for being here for answers(if there are any).Peace to all and happy travels

Default Jacks

On my 2006 Sunvoyager I had the same problem. I had to manually pump them up before I found the problem. I had a blown 5 amp fuse under the drivers side that was for the Jacks alarm. Once I changed it they worked fine. It wasn’t where the fuse box stated it would be so I just started pulling fuses till I found it. It puzzles me how they build these things.

Hello,
More information needed;
What year,
brand of coach,
what brand of hydraulic Jack system does the coach have…

The more information the better response you’ll get.

Hi Mike,
The unit is a 2004 Gulfstream Friendship G7.The control for the leveling system is a Dewald Manual system put out by POWER GEAR.The touch pad for the system is a Dewald part #DN12558.This system has become obsolete so I am currently looking for someone to repair control pad if possible.Hoping for a good solve.Just need someone willing to take a shot at the control board.Thanks for your reply.

Please contact Donald Gryder, he doesn’t have the Dewalt jack system. That said he helped me build a home made control panel. It’s works great. This site won’t let me post a picture. His email is below.

Don is a great guy. And very trustworthy.
Good luck!!

Don contacted me today asking about you. Below is what he said;

Good to hear from you and glad you are doing OK.

I guess the guy with the jack problem got it cured or just forgot about it because I never heard a word from him.

There is or was a guy in the Midwest that can repair the control board for the Dewald manual hydraulic jack system.

I had them repair mine and it's been great for years. I'll have a look and see if I can find the receipt in my records.

It's a very simple system.

Sorry my week got extended

Yes that sounds like the same outfit I used. Good on ya, it's really hard to find companies that can fix old circuit boards.
Due to component obsolescence repair can range from easy to impossible. Fortunately it is a simple single layer circuit board with very common components.
