I have a 2001 Fleetwood Pace Arrow. The alarm on my leveling jacks beeps constantly as we go down the road. My jacks are up and they are not going down as I drive. I am told there are several sensors in the system that is causing this. Is it easy to find the sensors? Is it easy to disconnect the alarm so I can drive? Other than that, the jacks are working perfectly.

I had a 97 Fleetwood Bounder that did that when the hydraulic fluid was low in the reservoir.

Oh, by the way, I checked the hydraulic fluid first since I did know about that sensor and it is full.

2001 should have Powergear. Reservoir level is what has the float for down indicator. IF you are positive the fluid is just below the fill cap, then odds are the float sensor is bad. If NOT Powergear, State what System you have. Doug

I should have said.........Powergear. Oh I just raised and lowered them for five times, I heard that sometimes very small debris to get in the way and kick off a sensor. Didn’t work.

I had the same problem on a previous moho and simply removed the buzzer. I used a clothespin on the shift nob to remind me of Jacks down.

Mine did that once right after we bought it. I don remember but I may have left the system on after I retracted the jacks. I looked down when it did it and didn't see anything, but this was 3 years ago.

On the side of the reservoir about 1/4 from the top you will see 2 wires going to the float. I forget which you do , but you disconnect the 2 wire plug and either leave it hanging or jump the 2 wires. You will know which when the alarm stops. Doug

Doug beat me to it.
However I did find topping off the tank worked too
but till I could get the proper ATF I did as doug does.
