I had a 2011 1208, which we loved but was too much work to use. Occasionally, the power top would do just what you are talking about. I called Jayco and they explained something about that being how it worked and that the sensor was finding the correct amount of power it needed. I assumed that explanation was a bunch of garbage. I decided to use jumper cables and jumped the thing from the battery on my popup to my F150 (while the truck was running). Then tried the lift again. It worked flawlessly! Top went right up completely.
