Pounding in Rear Jack

by Dave (Oklahoma)

Question: I have noticed the recent onset of a pounding in the rear jack on my 05 Monaco Knight. The bolts on jack to frame look good. There doesn’t seem to be any slippage or oil leaks, and once leveled they hold well.

Answer: It sounds like this is a noise you hear when lowering the jacks. Our first guess would be that there is a loose part or perhaps a need for lubrication somewhere in the mechanism.

You already seem to have done troubleshooting on the most likely causes. It may be time to have it checked by an RV service facility. We invite comments from anyone who may have had a similar problem.
