2011 390QS will not start!

Moved the coach a week ago from it's winter parking location to my yard & drove into the driveway, leveled & opened up slides for cleaning & packing. Today I was going to move it again. After closing slides & raising the leveling jacks, I went to start motor but nothing. The message was telling me the jacks were not all the way up. I went outside & looked; all were up. I lowered them & raised them again, no luck starting. Message still telling me that jacks were not up. What is going on? You cannot start the engine with the jacks down, correct? Computer glitch?

Any lights on the equalizer jack pad? Try lowering and raise the jacks individually. I have started the engine with jacks down many times. Sounds like something else going on. Did you accidentally shut the engine off with it still in gear? Make sure your in natural. Skip

After a few phone calls to a few people in the business, it was discovered how easily you can get fooled into thinking something major is wrong with your coach, when in fact it is something very minor, if not stupid. I was working on replacing a piece of glass in the driver's side cockpit on Saturday; I inadvertently shifted the coach out of neutral into gear while working there. Once I had it back in neutral, the engine started & purred like a kitten! Mystery solved, and a new awareness of working on this machine will make be more careful when I am doing things to it.

Don't feel stupid. Those that have and those that probably will. (I have, more than once.)
