I've tried all these things. These are great suggestions. I'm not sure about the ground wire thing. I had more than enough fluid.

The jacks finally came up after much fiddling. I do see there is a small leak in the housing of the unit. The jacks finally started coming up on their own but very slowly. It never did register as "jacks up". I got the motorhome back home while it flashed errors the whole way.

I will call the dealer and go from there. Hoping that extended warranty finally pays off.

to the dealer on the 2nd of June and then a week before they look at it. I'll try to reply back to the thread when I get some idea as to what happened for you guys that are interested.

Thanks for all the suggestions, you guys rock!

System reset

I had similar problem with GT335. I overextended jacks and tripped breaker as Iggy was saying. I then had to reset breaker and the system. Reset system by holding all four directional buttons (front, back and both sides) in at same time for 4-5 seconds. Everything worked fine after that.

Good luck, you'll probably have to show dealer how this is done!!!

Was wondering if you were monitoring Denny - was going to call you since I knew your experience!

Nah I think i'm way beyond a simple reset. There is definitely a small slow leak and I want that addressed. If there is a known issue with wiring then they can figure that out also.

Good move on the slow leak. Chances are it's a seep in the seal between the pump and motor. Eventually the oil will accumulate and cause the motor to overheat and fail. This a well documented Lippert system problem.

Mobile tech was pretty fast to see that the computer had lost its way and reset the system. He punched a bunch of stuff on the control pad and turned the ignition key on/off several time and then reset the auto level. Everything works but I still have the leak to deal with. He is still looking into that.

Here is the procedure from the manual if it happens again.

I am more afraid of what the cost of fixing the leak would be. He took some pics and said he would email lippert about it. In the meanwhile i'm fine sitting at my normal camp spot for awhile.

I have a warranty thru united service protection corp? but i'm not sure its worth anything.

True to form, Lippert will quote in the area of 1,400 for the pump/motor assembly. "Can't be overhauled". Locate the Lippert pump overhaul in the IRV2 forum class A section Monaco. Complete instructions with photos. Total cost of overhaul less than 20 for parts, maybe 6-8 hours of labor. Even if you can't do it, bring it to a hydr shop with the directions. Don't wait till the motor smokes.
