Stabilizers won't retract

2015 Jayco gray hawk class C 32 foot. Our stabilizers will not retract. Equalizer Systems is manufacturer. Manual says to override by locating the pump/manifold assembly and Resetting there. We can't find it! Have spent 6 hours on this. Replaced our battery as part f tryouts NB to solve the problem. We are stuck N the middle of nowhere.

1. Is your parking brake on?
2. Did you look under the coach?
The module is probably under the seat, if you find it unplug it and try to plug it in.

Pump stabilizer mechanism.

We looked under seat in dinette which is closest to the stabilizer box. We see wires going underneath the coach but can't tell what is what underneath. The manual said the pump stabilizer is usually in an outside compartment, but we have searched and searched. We are getting pretty desperate.

I don't have a Greyhawk but the Seneca's was behind a panel and in the middle of the coach. There's mini-fuses in side the box which you have to remove fe bottom of the floor. If none of the jacks will move it sounds like the main fuse at the pump is blown. It's a bigger automotive fuse that should be 20 amps. Find the hydraulic oil tank and look for the fuse holder.

The manual says you can reset the stabilizers at the pump manifold assembly. Supposedly there are 4 individual cartridge valves for each jack leg. And you rese the a screw in the valve stem. The whole assembly is quite large BUT WE CANNOT FIND IT. We have crawled underneath looking for a box that has small hoses from each of the stabilizers. We can't find it. We have looked in every storage compartment. We are stuck in SE Missouri and we're supposed to leave tomorrow. We cannot move.

In response to comment about pump, lights on the control panel all flash, the system beeps and nothing happens.

Follow one of the hoses. The pump is usually near a compartment door for just such emergencies, or under the cab.

I had a little older coach at one time if I released the park brake they would go into emergency retract, should be able to follow a hose from jack to pump

On the 2015 Grayhawk 29 me the pump is located under the coach midway between the frame rails ,it is bolted to a bracket that is welded on the frame left side,our system began having fits because of a poor ground condition and a 14 pin connector that corroded,not the best choice of connectors to be underneath and exposed to the elements, also did not see any way to manually retract the system, not that you would want to do it while laying underneath the coach anyway

Had a similar situation with my 31' Greyhawk, power was on, but stabilizers would not EXTEND. Tried everything. And after conversation with the shop mechanic he suggested I reset it. To do that he had me remove the Bigfoot control panel on the inside of the coach. It's only attached by 4 screws and when those are out you can unplug the control panel. After plugging it back in everything worked fine and has continued to work.

did you call equalizer?
did you try calling Jayco?


If you release the parking brake and start the engine, they are programmed to retract. If that doesn't happen then, yep, something's broken.



Best I can suggest is the same thing - follow a hose back from the jack to the pump.


What specific model of Jayco Greyhawk do you have?

If it's a 31FK, and you're still stuck, then I'm willing to crawl under ours tomorrow and see if i can find ours.

That is the model. If you could crawl under and find it, I would be so grateful.

The passenger side just in front of the rear axel. There's the j trap for the shower that makes it difficult to get to. Once I got it down, I moved it closer to the door.
