Big Foot leveling jacks problem

Hi, when we enter our motorhome the bigfoot panel is beeping and the right-front leveling light is flashing. We checked under the motorhome and all the jacks are up. Can anyone make a suggestion as to what is causing this problem and how to fix it. Thanks you.

Have you pressed the retract button to see if the beeping stops?

big foot leveling

Had that problem. The jack plate was not making contact with the sensing switch to tell it the jack is up. fixed it temporarily until a new jack and jack plate can be ordered.

On my older unit with Bigfoot Levelers it had a plunger switch on each strut and sometimes I had to lower the jack pad some and push the plunger rod in and briskly release a few times. Took care of the situation. I think the plunger rod was adjustable with a common screw driver.

Try to level if the system shows level then try to relevel, then let it do it's thing then hit retract all and see what happens. If that will not work try to reset to zero. If that will not do it you could have a bad sensor but I have never heard of that as a problem yet that I have seen. Most stuff is just user error the systems are pretty reliable. Lets hope yours is. Just a week ago a guy had a grounding error. What it came out to be was that the stroke of the ram couldn't go any farther. He had to retract and put a block under that one ram, yet had 30 reasons why it wouldn't work. Try the easy stuff first. Also lippert is your best friend right now and they will walk you through it as they did him...Good Luck... PS: will it work in the manual mode?
