‘05 georgetown xl R/F leveling leg goes down when slide outs are retracted

Has anyone come across this issue?

I have just purchased an 05' 375 with a lippert 4 leg auto leveling system. I

have the control brain on order due to the system not turning the pump on for the legs, but the three slideouts operate fine.
I am seeing the r/f leveling leg coming down to the ground when the slide outs are retracted.

Thanks,
John

Has it ever worked correctly, or did you get it this way?

There are a couple of interlocks. First, the emergency break must be engaged. Slide outs operate only when the engine is off. The leveling system will operate properly only when the engine is on. So, the order of operation is to push in the emergency break with the engine on, then level the coach. Then turn the engine off and operate the slide outs. See if that helps.

I have an '05 Georgetown and don't need to run the engine to operate leveling jacks. Usually make sure shore power is connected.

That said, the leveling issue is likely hydraulic. I don't think there is any interconnection between the controls for sile outs and jacks. So it's got to be some hydraulic pressure leaking into the jacks.

Also, LCI (Lippert) has a help desk that helped me diagnose a problem with the reversing solenoid.

I have an 05 Georgetown XL 34'. Both my slides and leveling jack run on a 12 volt operated hydraulic system located behind a panel in the middle compartment on the drivers side.

I find it interesting that my '05 Georgetown XL 359ts has a leveling control panel on the dash by the driver and slide controls back by the bathroom door in the same panel where the tank indicator lights and water heater switch etc are located. Unless you are talking about the hydraulic bay underneath where the hyd pump, valves and reversing solenoid are located. Then our rigs are the same.

Sounds like they are the same. The previous owner said he had to have a valve repaired for the same issue.

If your hydraulic system is the same as the ones I've seen, there's one hydraulic pump and the controls manage which valves open to allow fluid to go to the appropriate actuators. If a jack goes down when moving a slide, there's three possibilities:
1. The valve for the jack is bad and needs replacement.
2. The valve was manually opened and not fully closed.
3. There's a wiring error/short that opens the jack valve when moving the slide.

Item 3 is the easiest to diagnose. Figure out which solenoid controls the rogue jack and disconnect the control wire to it. If moving the slide doesn't move the jack, you've located the problem.

Item 2 can be checked by verifying that the manual override for the valve is fully closed. The emergency manual operation instructions for the system should have a description of how to manually open and close the valves. I believe that most, if not all, of the solenoids FR uses require a hex wrench to manually open/close the solenoid valve.
