Bad day

Here we are stuck in the air ,the jacks won't go down and then we discover the windshield is lifting off.. I may consider burying this and using it for a septic tank

You can manually retract the Jack's. The instructions are in the manual and online.

Bad day

I had a similar problem.

1. If you unplug the reversal Nguyen solenoid connector on your leveling system pump, you can retract the jacks usually. Turn off power, then remove the connector with the white and black wires it has only two wires. If looking at the pump from the hatch door, the connector is on the left and plugs straight in from the left. Also make sure your main breaker in coach battery compartment isn't tripped. It has a red flag extending if tripped.

2.once the black/white wire plug is unplugged, start the coach and turn leveling system on.

3.after it goes through start routine, press manual retract, hold till the jacks retract and the "jacks down" light goes out.

4. Call LCI The harness has a bad diode pack. LCI sent a new one to me along with a new control module.

The leveling pump motors on our systems only run in one direction, the fluid controls allow the jacks to retract. The new replacement wiring and controller are supposed to eliminate the problem of the electronics pack failing and only allowing the hacks to extend.

Hope this helps. KenClick image for larger version

Is that a documented troubleshooting step or you just trying everything?

Cool, pushing all four buttons does reset the LCI unit, if the problem is just that all the lights on the panel are flashing, resetting the condition may be all that is needed. In my case, when I tried to lower after a reset the jacks went to full extension, then tripped the power breaker.
In your case the four button reset worked, easy... cheers! Ken
