Currently at the dealer. They are replacing the pump and solenoids and controller And at least one rear jack. The design Lippert is using falls easily into the STUPID catagory. These jacks can and will extend past the point of return. Yeah some engineer thinks people will always be on perfectly falt level ground when leveling. So if you have one over any slope or depression dont be surprised if it cant be raised. In fact it will extend to the point it will bend the jack leg then it will never go back up.. (even if you remove the hydraulic lines and place a jack under it. Worked for one of the two rears but the other one had a visable bend to it. So I wait to see the new system works. its like having slides that dont have limit swiitches built in. These are note expensive or difficult to do but show a lack of 'idiot proofing'. And yes this idiot shoulda gotten out and measured the slope to make sure it wasnt too much...... From now on if its not flat and level the jacks stay up.

Usually if I feel the slope is too much, I'll put leveling blocks under the pads to compensate. It's, luckily, worked so far.
