I would contact the MFG for their recommendations for changing to electric jacks. Is your current hydraulic system an electric pump or hand? You might want to consider an electric hydraulic pump. Availability for the snow plow community is high. Their reliability is well known.

I have a 36ft winnebago Chieftain on a F53 chassis. I need to replace the fuel pump in the tank but the leveling jacks seem to go around the tank any idea how I remove them to get to the tank. If at

I dropped the tank on a 34' Fleetwood with the same situation. The jacks were welded on so there was no removal option. What I did was (1) Cut eight 4x4 s into 12" sections. I bolted 4 sections together to make a "pad". One 8" 4X4 makes two pads. (2) Then I pumped the fuel into drums. Free drums are easy to find. A cheap 12V fuel pump and tubing is available from any auto supply. (3) I raised the camper on all 4 jacks. Than I retracted one jack, set a pad in place under it and extended the jack fully. Clockwise I put pads under all the jacks one at a time to make a layer. Then I put in another layer of jacks, round and around, and continued until the camper was up 4 layers. (4) The camper could "roll" forward off the jacks at this point because the wheels were off the ground. I attached a chain to the camper frame and took tension backwards using a come-along chained to a tree. (5) Then I got some pallets from the grocery store trash and put those under the tank. (6) I loosened the hangers for the tank and let it down on the pallets slowly. The hoses have to be removed before the tank drops very far. I worked the pallets out one layer at a time to lower the tank to the ground. (7) I could reach the pump mounting plate so I just removed the screws and lifted out the pump and gasket. (8) installation was the reversal.

If I had to do it again, I would take it to Camping World or a truck garage. They have lifts to raise the camper and jacks to raise and lower the tank.

The breaks stopped working on my 1996 jayco slide out camper what could cause this

If they are electric brakes I would be checking all the wires from the car plug through the plug to the brake magnets.. It they are over ride hydraulics I would be cleaning out the old fluid and replacing it and pulling the wheel cylinders and master cylinder on the over ride shaft to remove the rusted items.. Mostly caravan hydraulic brakes just rust up for the moisture r that gets into the fluid over time.

Vw t25 gearbox oil change

You will need a very large allen wrench (like 19mm or so) for the drain and fill plugs.
This is an uncommon size so if you do not want to invest in one just have a shop do it.
If you decide to go ahead, get GL-4 hydraulic oil and a pump. Remove fill plug first (to ensure you can before draining transmission!) on side of transmission, about mid-line.
Then remove drain plug (center bottom toward engine). Have catch pan ready.
Once it has all dripped out, replace drain plug and fill with pump through side plug until it starts to drip back out (car level).
Let it finish dripping out, replace plug and good to go!

How to change motor mount

if you don't have an engine hoist you'll need a couple of hydraulic jacks. loosen the bolt that bolt the engine to the mounts. then raise the engine with the hydraulic jacks. once you have just enough clearance to get your hands and tools into the bad mount remove it. put in the new one. slowly lower the engine back into place with your hydraulic jacks and tighten then engine back down to the motor mount. be careful the engine doesn't shift while it's suspended on the jacks one it's dangerous and 2 it will make it harder to realign the engine when your lowering it back onto the mounts

How do you change fuel pump

The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, you can either remove the trucks bed or you can drop the fuel tank. Both ways require helping hands and a set of jack stands and hydraulic floor jack to raise the truck and also to lower the fuel tank out. You will also need a Ford fuel line removal tool, available from any parts store like NAPA.

How to change a fuel pump for the gas

  • Position your vehicle over a hoist or rasie it up with a floor jack and support it with jack stands and relieve the fuel system pressure. Drain the tank by loosening the clamp and removing the fill hose. Unplug the fuel pump's electrical connection and disconnect the evaporative emissions lines and the fuel lines. Support the fuel tank with a hydraulic jack and remove the bolts on the fuel tank so you can lower the fuel tank. Remove the lock ring on the fuel pump using tool 9340 with a ½ inch drive breaker bar to rotate the lock ring counter-clockwise. The fuel pump should rise up slightly when you remove the lock ring. Remove the fuel pump using care not to bend the float arm. Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit, especially the rubber gasket for the fuel tank. Rotate the fuel pump until the alignment arrow points toward the alignment mark. Be sure the fitting on top of the fuel pump faces towards the driver's side. Tighten the lock ring with tool 9340 until all seven notches engage. Complete the installation by reversing the removal procedure

    I just bought a 1976 Chevy with an Open Road camper on it that goes over the cab. It seems that Open Road Campers Inc. does not exist anymore. I don't have a manual for it (the camper) and can't find...

    Is it a slide in camper? and if so there should be jacks that go at the 4 corners above the truck box. you lift the camper up slightly and drive the truck out from under the camper. The jacks could have been removed and stored in the camper under a bench seet in the dinett.
