I have the LCI Ground Control 3.0 and just this week ran into what I think was your same problem. I have a AGM battery that I bought this year and the last time I was at the storage lot a week ago, the panel showed fully charged. Yet when I went to get the trailer for the trip I'm on, the LCI was showing error and wouldn't raise the legs. I checked the panel and it said Weak battery.
The solution was a 2 parts. First, luckily I have a little 40watt solar that's not much good for anything but battery tending. I hooked it up and waited about 15 minutes and apparently that was enough to get the LCI to raise the front legs. Although it wasn't smooth. I had to press the Front button and the legs would go up a smidgen. Then press again, and again and finally they made it up and I hooked and left on the trip.
By the time we got to our destination 8 hours later, the battery was fully charged and I expected the LCI to work as normal. It was better than before but still not normal. I could raise and lower the front legs but it kept beeping showing an error on the right rear jack.
I went ahead and unhooked the trailer then I followed these LCI instructions to clear the errors.
1. Manually extend so that each leg is down at least 6 inches.
2. Press and hold the Retract button until you see 'Auto Retract All'
3. Let the Auto Retract complete it's cycle, this could take 3 or 4 minutes so be patient.
4. After that completes, press Auto Level and the trailer will complete and errors should be cleared.
I still don't know why my battery was down, but I'll with that separately.
