Stabilizers

OK, we caused a problem, but not sure right yet how bad. Parked in a city park RVsite that was very steep. Let out the auto stabilizers, and the RV leveled. Later we noticed the tires were not touching in the front. Put chucks under the tires, and then some blocks of wood. When we let up the stabilizers, there was a beeping and they indicated they weren't totally retracted. Looked in the manual and couldn't see exact problem, so disconnected the cable and didn't use for the rest of our trip. Going to contact the dealer on Monday, but any ideas?

Did you try just unplugging and plugging them back in? Sometimes that'll clear errors

I had the same issue on an unlevel spot. Got a few miles down the road and it started beeping at me. I pulled over and called the company and got an engineer. He had me put down each jack manually for 3 seconds. Then hit all up. That straightened out the feet and all is well since. Try that a couple times and see if it works. Good luck.

Probably just a limit switch out of adjustment. Problem is there is no easy way to adjust them. One way is to put rubber vacuum caps (get them at any auto parts store) on the switch actuating rods which essentially lengthens the rods a little to solve the problem. I'm assuming you checked the jacks and they are really fully up, you should not be able to see any of the shafts and the foot is up against the cylinder housing.

had the same problem added vacuum caps and problem went away. company said the switch is very sensitive and only one inch will cause beeping. also if you do not get a allup light, manually put them down and auto retrack .they will reset the system again. company said aware of problem and corrected for 2014

The switches are located on the side of the jack cylinders and you will see a wire going to them. There is a plunger rod about 3/16" in diameter that contacts the jack foot when retracted. You put these rubber vacuum caps on the end of the plunger rod. Essentially these caps extend the rod a little so it actuates the switch a little earlier. Normal limit switches have a easy adjustment means but these do not so you have to Macgyver something with rubber caps.
