air suspension bags won't fill


This weekend I picked up a new Berkshire motorhome (390BH.) Drove home fine. I then auto levelled it in my driveway for a couple of days. I noticed the front wheels were off the ground by an inch or two. When I went to drive the RV, I pushed the retract all button and the jacks retracted fine. I then started the engine. Well, the air suspension bags did not inflate. I left it running for 40 minutes, started and stopped, no deal. Had to drive it to the storage lot with no air bags.

Any ideas what might be wrong?

Ours did that once, all we did is lower and raise the jacks again. One of the jack senors was stuck. Has not happened again. Our procedure is unhook everything, start engine and wait a few minutes for the air to build up, (yes the jack alarm will go off for a minute) raise jacks and then wait a minute or two for the air bags to fill. the leveling system will lift tires off the ground, however we don't like to so a few boards under the tires make us feel beter, never lift the back off the ground, that's your brake to keep you from rolling and bending your jacks.
