Auto leveling locked up

So we park at our house and the Lippert 6 way auto leveling system is locked. After selecting Auto level, on a slight incline side to side, The front jacks fully retract and the pump continues to run. The whole system cut off. Pump will not come back on. The manual says to turn the power off and then back on. Does anyone know where you do that? We have looked everywhere except where it is. It is not the big red key in the water compartment and main breaker did not reset system.

No, you need to turn off the power to the computer to reset.
I suggest you pull the plug on the back side of your control panel.
That should get it done. or, you can turn the control panel off then on and enter
manual mode.

We will try that in the morning. My DH used a drill to manually lower the legs. Are you saying that we should unplug the control panel for the leveling system?

Yes for unplugging the control box - the Levelers get battery power before the cut-off switch.

Two ideas for you.
Turn on keypad on/off button press and hold all four diamond keys front back and both sides for about 10 secs. Soft reset.

If that fails remove battery cable + or - again for same 10 secs.
One or the other should reset the computer unless something failed.

Well we have tried all of your suggestions and no success. Tomorrow, I will call the dealer. It's a shame. We have it just about a month. Could be worse. At least we're home when this happened.

Sorry nothing worked. Please let us know what the mÓlfunction was after the dealer fixes it. My guess is defective control board...

Lippert system

On my Silverback they installed a breaker in the front storage compartment. This turns the lippert on and off.

Well we took it to Tom Johnson today and they showed us how to reset it. It seems there is a gray button that you would never know to push in the front basement. Now we know! Glad it was an easy fix.
