One scenario I had with a Lippert system I had was a electronic failure at the pump/motor skid. Mine was located under the steps with pink fluid filled tank. Between the tank and the pump motor are lots of wire connectors. Locate the black and white wires connected into the pump manifold on the side of the assembly, not the top. May have to pull back some wire armor to find it.
This wiring is 16 or 14 gauge and controls pump oil fwd or reverse flow. If you can remove connector and all hydraulics will retract with normal button. If you reconnect. All items will extend. I had to do it this way for months, till FR located cable.

I can't post a picture but look to see if the 100amp breaker has tripped. It's a small square plastic encased unit about 1"X 1" in size usually located on the vertical wall behind the entry steps.

Sometimes if you over do things with your hydraulics this breaker will trip.......you may even see a small plastic tab (sometimes red in colour) sticking out from the side. Just push it back in to reset.

Report back so we can see if things are working with our suggestions.

Check your fluid level and the 100 amp DC breaker that supplies power to the pump motor.


Here is a picture of mine. If the small arm is out it is tripped. Push it back in.
Check your batteries cause low battery voltage makes this trip.

Yah it's not the breaker. Tried the wire trick and nothing still. Motor will lower Jacks more but not raise it just whines.

Check the ground connection for the jack. One would not retract as I took delivery. They finally found a loose ground wire. Glad it happened before I got it home.

Have you tried resetting the system? You can release the parking brake and see if the jacks will emergency retract.

What level is the hydraulic tank ?
If the motor will lower Jacks more but not raise it just whines it sounds like its turning.

If your level is too low it may not have sufficient fluid to do the job.
