Unhappy Newbie Owner Needing Help with the Damn Leveler System - ARRRGH!

Howdy!

My Better Half and I just bought a 2008 Georgetown and are on our first shakedown trip . . . yesterday (our first camping stop in the new beast), we were able to make the leveling system work fine with the Auto-Level option. However, today after driving to a new site, the damn thing won't work - first, properly; now, at all.

On our initial try today - the auto-level did the rear and the front, but not the sides. We then tried to retract and start over - which got us the left/right & LCI logo lights flashing error message. Finding the older thread on here with the helpful info about troubleshooting, we've tried doing the four diamond button press - with no avail. NOW, the only thing the craptastic system will do is turn on with the LCI logo flashing and nothing else . . . manual won't initiate, neither will auto and the four diamond reset appears to do nothing.

HELP!!! Any wisdom on here would be greatly appreciated, as we're in a campground with no cell signal and thus can't call Lippert customer support.

Parking brake and engine running is a must.

You most likely blew the circuit breaker for the pump. It happened to me. The circuit breaker is located in the battery box under your entrance steps. It is re-settable. It will have the main feed wire to your hydraulic pump attached to it. It will be a fairly heavy wire, but not as heavy as the primary battery cables. Hope this helps!

I agree on the Circuit breakers. Check them - this happened to us on the first trip. One tip - make sure no one else is under the coach when you reset the breakers. the jacks will retract as soon you do that - it scared the living day-lights out of me!

After you reset the breakers you'll have to reset the leveling system. Then you'll have to recalibrate auto leveling.

I had a problem with my levelers stuck in the down position. After wasting a day calling my dealer technician and trying different things, I called Lippert. They told me how to find the breaker and when I did it was tripped. Reset and haven't had a problem since.
