was doing some checking as RV Doc George seems slow on his repairs. Checked with HWH ( w/po# from RV Doc) and they quoted $196.56 each plus shipping. RV Doc George advised my price from them would be $300 each.. When asked why the discrepancy ( $400 total extra for all 4), I was advised.."we have to run a business.." Geez, 50% markup on parts! Wow, unfortunately, they have me by the 'short hairs' .

Mike, is the rebuild for the Kickdown Actuators or rebuilding the entire jack components?
Also would the RV doctor price include removing installing the completely rebuilt jack?
Actuators can be rebuilt while on the bus without removing the whole jack. I do not think $100 for removal and replacement of the 16,000 pound jack is too much. Each jack weights about 75 pounds. You need a small floor jack to jack up the jack when bolting it back on the frame.

I don't think they are rebuilds, I think they are new actuators. Again HWH quoted $196 and change each less shipping. No, I don't think installation is included and the $300 price each Doc George quoted was the actuators only after his mark-up.. They do not communicate well..
