Auto leveler won't work

Picked up new 2016 REBH today. Brought it home, leveled it up, unhooked. Hooked RV to electricity & moved contents of a 2012 Georgetown over to the new 371REBH. When I closed things down, ready to hook back up the auto leveler would not do anything. No lights, no messages. Has anyone had this to happen to them?
Thanks

There is a fuse for the auto level on the passenger side of the camper near the slide valve controls.

It's possible you blew the 10A fuse. It happens once in awhile...

I keep a full supply of the fuses. Mine blows nearly every time my single battery drops below an unknown level. Dealer has checked and it seems nothing is wrong with the unit other than when the battery drops below a certain amperage? the fuse blows.

I also keep a little fuse kit in the camper. Ours has only blown twice. Once in the middle of the summer and once when it was cold when I was closing it up for storage.

Our dealer installed two batteries in our trailer. They said it was pretty much required with auto level and residential fridge....

I wonder if it is related...

My REBH came with 2 batteries, I do not have the auto level.

When I get mine home from the dealer after purchase, I found a melted 10ga wire coming from the batteries to the hydraulics. It ended up being caused by the dealer. When they plug the RV into their forklift to run the slides out, without both batteries in place, it drew too much power through the 10ga wire.

Are you running your auto level while plugged in to your tow vehicle or plugged into an outlet?

I pretty much always use mine not connected to the tow vehicle or plugged in unless I am re-leveling the camper after a few days of camping.

When we got the two batteries from the dealer they weren't inter-connected. I bought jumpers and connected them together.

Mine is going in for service in a few weeks. I've blown 5 15 amp fuses on it in 3 trips, the last trip blowing 2 within 5 minutes. Lippert said it is a low voltage problem causing the amps to spike. Unit has 2 new batteries and was hooked to shore power when they blew. Frustrating!

Before I installed two 6 volt batteries, we had one group 24. Prior to our trip I had the battery on a charger at home just to make sure it was charged. Installed the day before to get the fridge going. The next day when we went to leave, I went to raise the landing gear and I got a beep and a low voltage indication. Plugged into the truck for about 20 minutes and was able to hitch up. Drove for about 6 hours to the campground then unhitched and tried to auto level. Partway through for a beep and a low voltage indication again. Plugged into shore power and all was good. Two points; one group 24 is nowhere near acceptable for auto leveling. The second is that we never blew a fuse, just got the low voltage indication. The wires for the batteries are 4 gauge though. Jerry

When I took delivery of my Sierra, my level up system power for the controller was hook into the hydraulic pump when I raised or lower landing gear it would blow fuse. I wired up a dedicated power supply from battery to the controller haven't had any issues since I did this. Don't know if this would help with your issues or not but Lippert recommends a dedicated power supply to controller with 10 amp fuse.

Anyway you could post a pic of that? I'd like to show that to the service rep when I drop it off. Also, any contact info at Lippert that recommended that fix? Thanks!

Call Lippert, and tell them to email you the correct way it needs to be hooked into, they really are pretty good to deal with that i have found, not to happy with some products but good CS I have found. Worth a try...Good Luck and safe travels.
