Jacks wouldn't retract - got them up

Thanks to this forum, when my jacks wouldn't retract on my '15 GT 270S this past weekend, I knew to look in the battery compartment. I saw the red lever thingy had popped out and I pushed it back down.

When I went back into my rig, all of the lights on the left from top to bottom
were blinking in unison. I pushed and held all 4 arrow buttons, then turned the system on and the jacks retracted fine.

I wonder if I needed to hit the 4 arrow buttons?

At any rate, my question is: Now that I went through this reset process, do I need to recalibrate my jacks?

Thanks!

We had the same problem happen to us in our 328tsf. All I needed to do was reset the circuit breaker (red flag indicator) and everything worked perfect.

No need to hold the four arrow buttons. Glad everything worked out for you.

Curious I have a 2015 270s also and didn't know about the reset button. (brought used and was never told and forgot to ask). If the reset didn't work - Question...how do you manually raise jacks if they are stuck down???

Don't quote me on this. I remember reading this in the LCI Owners manual. On our Coach I think you open a valve, use a cordless drill with a screw driver bit to an access paneling on the pump. Depending on which way you run the drill the jacks will retract or extend.

I would suggest find your owners manual or look it up online to verify this procedure.

Good Luck.

So as not to mislead here is another document for Lippert that has a slightly different manual retract procedure that does not reference the blue knurled knob (pages 34/35.
