RE: landing gear issue

Thanks Wa8 for reply. Yeah, the 3-5 sec and shut off is strange. The motor is barely audible during this. The legs are not bent but could use lube for sure. I will have to haul it home to work at it but Thanksgiving weekend up here and tearing out kitchen tiles so maybe next week. Appreciate your positive feedback!

RE: landing gear issue

Grit Dog. Where did I mention dirt on landing feet as an issue???? Better read that one again! Batteries are showing charge level rested at 12.96 in series. Some issues within camper are not assumptions. They are facts. I do not get power to a lot of receptacles, water heater, or charging component for battery bank while on 30 amp. I actually get these on 15 and 20 amp. With 50 amp service, which I never seem to find , all works as it should. I never stated ALL circuits. I still thank you for input!

RE: landing gear issue

Update Well when I went to storage yesterday I went to poke around and check batteries and all with my eyes and not go by the indicator lights. I had some green crud on one of the posts. Trailer would not go up at all when I turned the battery disconnect on. Pulled both batteries out ( trojan t 105 about 3 years old and brought them home. Checked water levels and noted the water was below the plates so added distilled to all 3 caps in each battery. Cleaned everything up and put them on a trickle charge. This morning they read 12.69 V ( but this is while they were hooked up) so they were not charged and lacking some water. I hope this is my issue!!! I will check after work today and that will have given them 24 hours and check strength. I think it should be around 13.4?????? Thought about running the jumpers to the motor like suggested to check for fun but delt with this first. That is how I run my genny during the winter months when going over to check things and exercise the genset. I did see dirt piled on the tops of the legs so these will need me tending to them when I tow it home again. Of note. My rig is a 50 amp service and I rarely ever find 50 amp. It is usually only 30 and works for a few days but I know some of my electrical draws are not on the legs of the 30 amp. Example is, when I am plugged to shore power 30 amp my batteries are not charging as per the indicator lights. Weird but I did not wire the unit. My electric option for hot water tank does not work on the 30 amp either as well as many of my receptacles . I may have to look into this . I would have thought that running the genset would have lifted the trailer but in this case no with the batteries in the condition they were showing. The battery light indicators in the trailer were not the tell all. Thanks all for replies. Again I hope this is the issue!!!!

RE: landing gear issue

I doubt fuse also for that reason. Mine has always been slow for raising the trailer. Could need a new motor.

RE: landing gear issue

It is electric motor. I will go to storage today to troubleshoot. I will look for an inline fuse and swap out. The motor works but very weak then stops as I described so the fuse is working but will check it out. Thanks for reply

landing gear issue

Hi all Own a 2014 Voltage 3305. This past weekend the landing gear seemed to cause me problems. When I was hooking up sunday to leave, the gear was very slow and would only run about 3-5 seconds and then stop all together. I would wait a minute and it would run 3-5 again and stop. I ran the on board genset, I plugged in . Nothing helped. Batteries are fully charged. Was able to get the trailer up enough to hook on and then same issue at my storage facility. Think the motor is done?? It has been slow for a while but not like this . Is the manual overide at the top pf the leg on the driver side of trailer? Thanks for any response.

RE: trailer brake issue

Update. Crawled under this morning to take a look. Sure enough, a broken wire in the rear axle hub driver side . A quick fix with a crimp and tape to work for the trip until I make a better permanent fix. the other 3 were in tact and looked good although the cheap wire job went to one axle and pigtailed over ....... junk!!!! With covid and a bad fractured ankle 16 months ago I did not use trailer a lot for past 2 years and did not notice things but knew braking was not right....... my fault for sure. I figure I was running with only braking on my front axle!!!!! While getting started this morning I notice my front tire on passenger side of trailer has 2 good size pieces of the rib missing . These are Sailun 3607 good tires I put on 6 years ago. Glad I saw it!!!!!! Dropped the spare and looked at that piece of junk and thought no way!!! Called a local reputable shop and they had 4 sailuns left and had me installed 2 hours later . Great shout out to Kal tire!!!!! I did have about 35,000 k on the first sailuns so no complaints there. Thanks to all you who helped out. Safe travels!!!!

RE: trailer brake issue

Picked trailer up to tow home for a trip in a few days. Blew air through pig tails and cleaned them up and did add some grease. Read about choosing electric over the electric over hydraulic option through the settings screen. Tried that and still see trailer disconnected????? Then I switch to electric over hydraulic and it shows connected and gain setting at 10 and there is braking but it is poor. Looking that I need to check the wires at the wheels under trailer. All original and probably dirty and corroded. 38 degrees C here Don't feel like getting under trailer at all right now!!! Have a few days prior to trip so will check tomorrow when it is cooler in the AM.

trailer brake issue

2017 f350 diesel and 2014 voltage 3305 toyhauler. I am getting a prompt on my screen when hooked up and I pull the brake controller it shows TRAILER DISCONECTED. Any ideas? Bought some diaelctric grease and will apply some and was thinking maybe a ground issue?? Thanks
