Help -Leveling Jacks -Stuck at Campground

Help. Please Help! On our maiden voyage with our brand new 2014 Georgetown 325tsf. When leveling the coach in automatic mode the rear jacks went down and brought coach to level. Front jacks never went down.

The jacks will not retract in either manual or automatic nor can I lower the front jacks. Control panel does light up and says all jacks down. Front jacks still up.

Now we're stuck at the campground since we can't release the jacks. Thinking of trying the manual override. Anyone ever do that? Need to pick up some Allen wrenches.

Please help.

Make sure the parking brake is on the engine started before trying to retract the jacks

Give Equalizer a call. They should be able to help you get the jacks retracted.

Thanks. Parking brake is on. I'm thinking of doing the emergency override at the pump. Curious if any has done this & what should I expect.

When I start turning the pump do they go up or down quickly and how easy does the pump turn.

Sorry, I guess your coach has a different leveling system than mine. I have an Equalizer system.

type in the search on leveling jacks there are several different ones that come up, different model types etc. hopefully this leads you down a path to success.


GOOD LUCK!

Got it. Called my dealer and spoke with the Tech that did our walk through. There's a 120 amp circuit breaker near the battery. It tripped.

If you're on a grade that could to much draw & it could cause it to trip.

Can't say enough about my dealer. Great guys!

Thanks
