Hydraulic Auto-Leveling system

OK ..... Having used the Equalizer Auto-Leveling system a few times, I realize it works very well.

In my past experiences with hydraulic systems, I have always noticed a hydraulic oil container of some sort as part of the operation.

On my Jayco Grey Hawk 29MV, I have failed to see or notice any hydraulic oil container for the Equalizer Leveling system.

Any other 29MV owners out there notice a hydraulic oil container for the Equalizer Jacks ...???

The reservoir is the square box between the frame rails forward of the rear wheels hanging down underneath the MH. You have to remove the cover to access the reservoir and valves. I haven't had the cover off yet so that's all I know for now.

Hi Hop,

While I have your attention, have you measured the ground clearance of your jacks...?? I find that my rear jacks are probably too low at 5-7/8". The front jacks are 7-1/16".

I came up with ~7" rear and ~6" front. I'm parked on gravel so my measurements won't be super accurate. You're right though, less than 6" rear could be a problem. On the other hand the jacks are only 3' behind the rear wheels so it would take a pretty good bump to smack em on something.
