Lippert auto level

This morning while I was hooking up, I had a malfunction with my leveling system which prevented me from retracting my landing gear. An external sensor fault was displayed. I retracted the landing gear by overriding the motor with a drill and was able to get on my way. When I got home, I powered the system back up and so far all seems to be working fine. Has anybody had this type of experience with this system?

Could just be a loose connection with one of the plug connectors. I'd check all them you can find.
Mine did act up once I remember and I turned it off waited a bit and turned it back on and been good for a year so far with no issues. I did check all my connectors but hard to say if I found one loose.

If my jacks stop retracting for what ever reason I just push the up-down arrows until manual mode is displayed. I then have to press the "enter" button to select this mode. Now you have to make sure the retract led is lit by pushing the "retract" button. At this point the "rear" button will bring up all 4 rams, one at a time. If you press "left" it will bring up the left rams one at time and the same for "right" button.

I have had my rams stop operating and have always been able to recover by putting in the "manual mode". This is true for set up also.
Just remember if the retract led is not on the Rams will go down. The "rear" controls all 4 rear Rams, not the most rear Rams. Left controls the 2 left Rams and vice versa for right. In all cases, one ram at a time until they start pushing the unit up or fully retracted (pump loads up).

I've started to bring my rear Rams up on my last trip. The unit was auto leveled and I started from that mode by just selecting retract button and then pressing the rear button. The rear Rams started to retract but I decided for some reason to put them back down and then none of the buttons would work. Pressed up-down until manual mode was displayed and then hit enter. I was able to operated all Rams again.

The front or landing Rams will work in any mode as far as I can tell. I don't use the left-right simultaneous feature as I like to raise the pin to where I want it and then back in TV and lower to my desired height for hitching.

I had a breaker trip while it started the auto level sequence. It went all the way down (unlevel ground) with the front rams and stopped within a few seconds of bottoming out. I found the breaker and reset it and it has been fine.

It is in the front storage. It was by the hydraulic pump, under a small black plastic cover that holds 2 breakers for the hydraulic pumps and auto level unit. Of coarse, it was at 11 PM in a forest.
