I have HWH 325 series in my 05 Itasca 33V with Workhorse Chassis.

Can't get all stabilizers up. Usually it is curbside rear that stops about halfway up. All store retractions very slow.

New to this Motor Home.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Bud,

Welcome to the FMCA Forum.

I would call HWH on Monday-- they are very good with troubleshooting (as are their manuals). Most manuals are on-line at:

http://www.hwhcorp.com/service34.html.

There were issues on some jacks with weak return springs-- don't know if your series/year was involved.

HWH 800 321-3494 or 563 724-3396.

Thanks for the help. I will call HWH in the morning. I did download the operator manual for this model.

We have HWH with slow retract on our coach. I purchased a 6' crow bar and use it with wooden blocks for leverage to "help" with final retract. Has worked well for last couple years though a little inconvenient.

You might try spraying the jacks with a lubricant right before you try retracking them.  The seals dry out from not being used and a little spray certainly seemed to help mine over the years.

I wouldn't have the patience to do what you do.  I would have to figure out what the problem is and fix it.

I just had this problem.  Someone suggested it might be low fluid level, ie the reservoir is at its lowest upon full extension.  Cold temps, dirt, lack of lubrication could all be factors, too.  Good luck.  I hope you have a happier ending than us: I pull the leg tomorrow for repack <sigh>
