RV Leveling system--atwood--not working

Hello,
I have a 2009 Coachmen Mirada with Atwood leveling system w/o manual. When I turn on the system the inside green lights start fast blinking and that is as far as it gets, I pushed the auto but extend process did not start. I checked all the lever legs and found that the front left was stuck while the others had a small play, loose. After tapping leg I got it like the others and thought that was the problem but did not change panel status of blinking green lights. Could that stuck leg have blown a fuse or reset in-line fuse some where? Also, cannot find fluid reservoir to check fluid level. I viewed all the videos on youtube but did not find any that was any help. Any help as to solving this problem would be great.

Happy Camping
Dave

Hydraulic pressure would easily move the cylinder if just "tapping "freed itup! Now you need to locate the elect motor then you have found both "pump and reservior"! The control valves should be close also! Youroo! !

I thought the Atwood was an all electric leveling system.

Maybe that's why he can't find his "Reservoir"! Youroo! !

A picture would help of the control problem, I'm guessing it's a big foot system. Never heard of an Atwood. The pump would be located in the frame. There are interlocking systems that will stop it from working, such as the key being in or for sure if the motor is still running. My bet is the motor is not off. This happened to me, the exact same problem. Once I turned the motor off and took the key out it worked again.

You can get the manual online, 99.9% sure it's a big foot on that coach.

There is an Atwood leveling system. Don't know if still manufactured. My class A BIGFOOT system had the fluid reservoir and its pump at each of the 4 leveling jacks (no central reservoir and pump). Yes, a picture would be helpful. Lot of differences out there and it's a 10 year old coach.

Just looked you are correct, there is a ton of information online to trouble shoot. I don't think it is manufacture anymore. Lippert use to carry it, I learn something everyday, you got to love it...

I have doing some reading I must be bored, but found that Atwood is the same as big foot, maufactored by Quadra manufacturing, but is now just called BIG FOOT. the things you find on the internet.
