Level jack squashing power cord

OK, we're (finally) home and went out and unhooked the new trailer from the Beast TV and are starting the process of cramming stuff in it.

The leveling system worked........(BUT, when I turned it on it should have said "Jacks Up" but it said Jacks Down. Still, I got it to work and dropped the landing jacks, unhooked, and the auto leveling worked.

DW is working on it and she to the of the 6 auto jack pads is on top of the cord (which is plugged into existing 30amp plug on house that I had for the old trailer, via an adapter)........

I can NOT pry it up enough to pull the cord out. It's not fully under, it's under one of the round pads a bit. Still, it won't come out.

This is the last jack to go down (Naturally!!!!). To get the cord out I'd have to rehook, bring in slides, and lift it and start over. Ugh. Everything is working fine, a/c, lights, etc.

Leave it as is till we hook up? Or start over and get it out from under there???? If I had to, I could TRY putting a scissor jack under frame there and lifting it, then removing scissor jack.................... ???

It appears that you have a 5th wheel with the 6 point level up system. In this case I would recommend that you retract the rear jacks of the system until you can remove the power cord and then hit the auto level button again. Just leave everything slides and such out it will be ok.
