6 point hydraulic leveling system

Hey yall. I'm new to this so bear with me, please. I have a 2014 Voltage
3605. My hydraulic Jack's are coming up a few inches and then stop for about 10 seconds before they start coming up again. They stop about 10 times before they are all up. My hydraulic tank is at the full level when all of the Jack's are up and it only does it when retracting them. Has anyone had this issue? What was your remedy?

There a few threads here concerning this problem with the hydraulic jacks. IIRC the problem stems from the automotive circuit breakers opening and resetting.

Give search a try and see if there are any answers there for you.

Hi DSmith
You may find some information in the lower link useful. Our last 5'er was a Montana with 6pt, Lippert sent out a service bulletin to upgrade to an 80 amp, they also recommended replacing the hydraulic fluid to a viscosity more suitable to the conditions, my system would stall due to the colder weather. The marine industry uses some real nice breakers.

Upgrading the cirsuit breaker solved the same problem on voltage. Takes about 5 min to fix. the breaker should be on the wall in your front batt compartment.

Brand new my 2017 did the same. Also L rear jack wud frequently not extend all the way. Turned out it was bent. They kept telling me use lubrications. It helped but didn’t resolve. Took in for warranty repairs. Finally everything works correctly
