Intermittent Starting Problems & Jack motor issue

We have a 2013 Georgetown with an intermittent starting problem. It first occurred last summer in Florida. No more problems until this winter (in Michigan). We started having starting problems in the storage yard (detected while exercising the generator). We assumed that there was a problem with the battery and called AAA. While waiting for AAA to come, we kept trying to start the coach and were finally successful, however, we heard a grinding noise somewhere back in the coach. We were able to drive the coach to our mechanic where we had the coach battery and the house batteries replaced. However, the lights on the leveling jack control were flashing indicating that the jacks were down (which they weren't) the whole way - and they have continued to flash every time we drive the coach.

Our mechanic has tried all of the obvious things to find the starting problem (which keeps recurring intermittently) with no success. It also turns out that the leveling jack motor burned out (no doubt the source of the grinding noise that we heard). We are getting the leveling jack motor replaced this week. We are reluctant to travel with the intermittent starting problem, and concerned that whatever is going on could create another problem with the new leveling jack motor. Has anyone had a similar experience or possible solutions?
