Manuals are a great source of information and I did download and read all the manuals. Just wish my memory was perfect, particularly when I needed. So I thank the operators of this forum, since often it the first and best place to find information for a question. Thanks for including the reference to the manual, much better than the resposne, read the manual.

Glad the page picture helped.
My statement to read the manual inflamed some. Sorry.
The issue is really we all bought one expensive toy.
I think it deserve a little time to learn the many facets of the rigs before we break something that is always inconvenient and very costly.
So all I suggest is spend some time reading and rereading the limited amount of paperwork we receive so you don't have to be stuck in a campground with no help in site and no idea what is wrong.

Give Iggy a little bit of a break, he is a good guy and he did not mean to make anybody feel bad about not reading manuals. Even if most of them were missing or are useless except for the one from Ford! This forum is a great resource for sure and Iggy has been a big contributor to it, i see his posts all over the place.

It says in many places that the engine needs to be running.

See attached picture from my manual.

Just as Iggy didn't want to offend, neither did I. I am sure Iggy contributes as much as most no matter whether it's in the manual or not. I just wanted to point out how great the forum is and that often it is MUCH easier to reach out here, than to go through the random collection of paper that we got from FR that USUALLY doesn't help... The Forum always helps....

LCI Jacks

Reading the posts on the low voltage light, I have a question that I could not find the answer to in any of my info provided by FR. When we put the jacks up, their is one of the triangle lights that continues to blink. Check and all the jacks are all the way up. What causes this light to blink?

It means you are not level. Since the jacks are up, that is what I would expect..

When turning on the panel you should show the yellow triangles show which area is low. Not sure if they blink as I don't remember.

Here is the troubleshooting manual for you.
It just might be as simple as you need to Zero the system on a level surface.
Was the rig may have been leaning a lot?
What happens when you turn the panel off then back on again?
Does this happen every time you setup?
Have you tried calling Lippert the manufacturer about the issue?
Good luck.

Thank You Iggy and Jim Schings for the info.
Iggy, I will have to try the zero in process. My wife usually does the jack stuff, so I will have to check the panel. Yes it happens every time we set up. I have not called Lippert yet. Never think about the light until we are on the road.

Every time I see a post for the leveling system, it's an LCI. Am I the only person with the Georgetown that uses a Equalizer Systems? It not only controls my jacks that also both slides. Also jacks will not extend with the engine running but they will retract the engine running.
