Leveling jacks won't retract

trying to leave the campground and jacks won't retract. 2016 FR3, 30DS. the panel beeps when you start the engine, and all the lights flash yellow. the panel is unresponsive.

anyone have any suggestions?

Noticed that the reset button had flipped, so i reset it, several times and did not work. the batteries are testing over 13v so i think power is good.


looks like the back tires may be slightly off the ground.

Leveling jacks won't retract

If you have already reset the big self popping breaker, there is a manual way to reset them from a video on you tube that involves disconnecting the power plug at the hydro pump and backing out some Allen screws to allow the fluid to return to the reservoir.

Ive also read that disconnecting the control pad plug inside has worked. That's only four Phillips head screws. And easier or to do from inside. As I recall, once you unplug and plug it back it the panel resets.

It's worth a try and way better(and safer) than a saws all!

We had the same problem last year with our Georgetown 328TSF.. There's a main fuse/breaker near the batteries that a flag pops out the side when it trips. Reset the flag and we were good to go.

It was our first outing with the new coach and like you, we were concerned..

Good Luck..

Solution: Hold down all four directional buttons on the jack panel at the same time. This reset the panel and i could then turn the system On and retract jacks.

Thanks to all who responded, I will keep those in my bag of tricks for next time.

I hope that is all that you experience with the jacks. we had the same thing happen months ago, had to call someone out to retract the jacks and ultimately had a circuit board changed out and hydraulic tank shavings removed from one of the valves.

LCI Leveling Jacks

Georgetown 364TS---
Hey all. I had a jack issue, and took my unit in to get a checkup. I was told that I had a "crimped wire" in the wiring harness for the jack system. If you are having jack issues, this might be one of the problems. Hopefully, he fix worked and we won't have any additional issues. Also, if your operators panel ever flashes the lights on the left side, you can reset the system by pushing all 4 directional arrows and holding until lights on left side go out. Have a great week everyone.
