Forester Leveling Not Working.

Good afternoon all. I have a 2019 Forester 2861 DSF and I just went out to get the camper ready for our first trip of the year. I went to level it and nothing happens. The engine was running and the emergency brake is set. I get a screen saying: Retract error! Hoses or pressure switch may have malfunctioned. Leveling system may require service. They retracted fine last year and they haven't been used this year until now and nothing happens. This is a new 7 inch One Control screen but I get the same error message on the 5 inch screen in the bed room. Anyone have any idea's on what this could be? I attached a picture of the error message.

FYI... I got the problem resolved. The folks at Lippert were wonderful. In my case I had to hold the "OK" button for 10 seconds and it cleared the error. Pressed Auto Level and it leveled just fine. We're back in business.
