Lippert Level-Up

Does anyone else have problems with their Lippert Level up system? Ours has been cutting out halfway through the operation of lowering or raising the fifth wheel. So my husband thought it was the battery so he bought a quick disconnect for it. Anyway it still did it so he called Lippert, they walked him through the procedure and of course it quit. The tech at Lippert said oh it's not supposed to do that, you need to take it to the dealer. So it's still under warranty and Lippert got us a work order number and we took it to Buddy Gregg in Knoxville TN. They had it for 2 weeks and when we went to pick it up today, they said it had to do with the quick connect. They said it works now and they couldn't get it to fail. Well we got it to work just fine to get it hooked up to the truck......when we got home not so lucky. So we called Buddy Gregg and the guy there called Lippert. Now they're thinking it's the pump. So tomorrow back to Buddy Gregg. They also charged us $48.00 for supposedly putting some wires back up under the under belly........we asked them to fix the underbelly covering and never said a word about wires coming down. Well they slapped some more duct tape under there and of course it didn't hold so we're gonna put some straps on it ourselves.......gonna get our $48.00 back too. To top it all off I unstrapped the table and forgot to strap it again and it fell into our half barrel cupboard door and punched a hole in it. It's just a thin veneer with a skin on it, don't know how much it's gonna cost to fix that. I need this aggravation because.............Anyone with any input?

I have a 30RL and it has cut out on occasion. I just restart it. It happens when I run the pump for long periods. I just stop for an instant while raising and then it never happens. Now you have me thinking. I may have a problem too. Hmm?

Well it worked at the dealers again, got it home got it off of the truck, front jacks down and now it won't work again so we can get the other jacks down. We're going to have the battery tested to see if it's got a bad one. Do you feel like your rv is level when it's done leveling? I have never felt like ours was. I sure hope we get this resolved for ever because I like the idea of the auto level. But now it's scaring us into thinking we goofed getting it.

the same thing and It has two reset buttons behind it that you can't see and one was tripped, it happens one in ten times. Now I just press the reset button and continue with auto level . Mine is locate in the battery compartment .

Our Lippert leveling system works great, except it stops very sparingly. This might be due to a low battery charge which would make it draw more amps. It resets after it is turned on again. If the camper is plugged into power, the battery will have more stuff, which may explain the success at the dealership. There is a proceedure for setting the level. It is in the instructions and takes about two minutes. It is easy to do. This is a great invention and makes setting up a snap. Not a mistake to buy.

Sorry my post did not work. There is a circuit breaker in the battery compartment for the pump motor that controls the auto level. Mine has two reset buttons behind it that you can't see. If one is tripped the auto level will stop working half way through the auto level procedure. Check to see if it has the reset buttons. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your input......right now the system won't work at all, my husband is going to have the battery checked because the slides sometime stop in the middle of operation. The leveling system has always stopped and so if it's the battery it's still under warranty. So is everything else until Feb.

I think some slides might work off the same pump as the Level Up. So it could be the battery or the pump in that case. Your dealer needs to come out and ge your slides in
