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!
