Hydraulic RV Jack Fail! Four Lessons Learned

We've never had a moment of trouble with our HWH hydraulic jacks in over 12 years in this, our second motorhome. But during our recent visit to Zion National Park, we caused our own jack failure!

Check out the video to see what went wrong, how we dealt with it, how we learned four lessons in the process. We actually knew about this issue, but being mostly snowbirds, we forgot about this potential cold-weather camping situation.

Our Utility Blocks are not only the best RV levelers we've ever had, but this time they REALLY saved the day. And don't forget the LevelMate PRO leveling system! Get them both on Amazon here:
