Default levelers

When bought the coach all 4 of them worked. So as time goes by two of them stopped working, then the third one stopped, so while down here in florida i started working on them. To make this short i tryed everything and then called company and for 1000.00 they will sell me a replace. well aint doing that, so i know how they work and i can make all 4 work. so i was tracing out the wires at the controller and i thought before i started cutting wire i would plug it back in and see what happen............ they worked........
So putting a meter on the wires made a differnce i guest? so i have the new parts to make them work when i need them too. if you have trouble with yours i am the expert now....lol. but i do know how to make these work. Takes over 10 volts.

And this also why i know i dont have explosed water lines. i lived under there for better part of a day.

You probably wiggled some wire connections which were lose or corroded and now they make good contact. If you have more trouble try cleaning all of the connections and consider using some dielectric grease to prevent corrosion.

Andy i believe your right, but i also tryed the controller 20 times till i was getting to "hardwire" and was tracing the wires out with a meter and i thinking what the best way to do the wiring and so i tryed one more time and it worked..... was there some wrong resistance and the meter blead it off?
Biggest thing is i understand it now and if i have to hard wire it in the future i know what it takes, for now i will use the fancy pad and move on to another project.

Your meter didnt "blead" anything. The bad connection just made contact after you moved the wiring around. You still have the problem and due to Murphey's laws it will manifest itself again in the rain, at night during a lightning storm, or at the least, when you most need them to work, like a flat on the side of the road (assuming they will lift a wheel, and you can fix it). I think I would go ahead and fix the problem. Grounds connections are generally the culprit.

I always keep a big tube of dielectric grease in my tool bin. I put that s$%t on everything (electrical that is).
