Lippert auto level

My 2016 31RK Silverback has Lippert auto leveler which likes to throw the breaker. The breakers are behind the battery compartment and accessible through the very front locker. It is on the drivers side behind a protective panel (no screws). Mine doesn't have a plastic panel covering it. Look for where your battery cables and other 12 volt wiring come together. The breakers are microbreakers on the side of the bus bar. Mine has three breakers and it usually only throws one of them. They are push in/pop out style. Just push in to reset.

When it throws the breakers the leveler panel still has power but the hydraulic pump does not.

Lippert auto level

I did not have a breaker issue, it was an external sensor fault code.

Lippert auto level

I wish I understood how these things work. I suspect a sensor problem too because the system says it is grounding the gear but nothing is happening?

Try to reset your system, Pull the plug behind your board for 10 secs then replug it in. If it is still doing the samething go through the re-zeroing process. You push the top button 10 x's and then the bottom button 10 times that will re zero your sensors. If you look up LCI level up systems it will tell you how to do it, it is also in your manual. I think you might be out of stroke. When your in auto and you unhitch then by hitting auto level the rear will rams will come down until it feels resistance only. Then it will first dip down and level from front to back then side to side and will then go into check mode. When it is done checking front to back then side to side it should say success. Your front rams are 27" and the rear are 17" only. Also you must clear all errors that come on the screen by pressing enter. Otherwise it will lock. Hope that helps.... The second or third post on the first page explanes it pretty good. If all else fails call lippert they can walk you through it over the phone.

There are two separate 12Volt systems. Each with its own fuse/breaker power supply. The fused portion is small diameter wire for sensors, touch pad and the motor/pump controls. The other circuit is the pump/motor skid. That cable is large diameter and fed direct from the batteries with a CB inline to protect the motor. That could be open and allow the display with no action of the jacks.

Every time my unit has stopped responding I have pushed the up-down mode selection arrows (not the front-rear arrows) until manual mode is displayed, then you have to press enter. It is now in manual mode. If you want to retract then push the retract button to turn on retract led. Obviously if a breaker is blown that is another issue. My system is hydraulic.

I pressed enter to clear the fault and it would not clear. I unplugged the panel and each time I plugged it back in the fault was still present. So I manually overrode the system to retract my rams by using a drill. When I got home and plugged it back in and tried it to drop the trailer, everything worked fine.

So when you got home after manual retracting it cleared the error message when plugged in? Where you plugged in when it first Happened? I'm wondering if you had a loose connection somewhere. Very strange that it cleared by itself. Are you full with ATF fluid? May I ask what year is your CC? I know that they came out with a new board (control panel) in July of 2014. Did you have to pull any wires at the manifold to retract them manually? I hate problems like that which are intermittent. I would call Lippert to see if they can shed some light on it. If you find out why that happened please let us know....Glad it's working for you again. Does your unit have a switch on the outside that will just work your two front jacks? Sorry for so many questions but I'm trying to figure out what could have happened....

When I said plugged in, I was referring to the plug in the back of the panel. My unit is a 2012 model. There is no separate panel for the front jacks (landing gear), all work from the same panel. I was able to find the individual block valves and lock out the one needed to raise my landing gear by turning the screw in the bottom of the block and then opening it again when I tried it later at home. There is no need to pull any wires, just block off the valves.
