The levelers may be low on fluid. It doesn't take much to cause it to start beeping. We had that on our 08 SENECA especially when it was cold since the fluid was slow in returning to the tank. I would recommend that you switch over to trans fluid (spec'd in the owners manual, or on BF's web site) if you plan on doing much cold weather camping.

Stopped Bigfoot false alarms

So, were they retracting and the system alarm beeped, or were they not visibly retracting completely? We had a problem with ours where they would all completely retract, but one of the limit switches was not being compressed tightly enough. After a few bumps the alarm would start beeping.

I called Bigfoot and they suggested putting rubber vacuum line caps over the limit switches which I did. Have had no false alarms since.

Sounds like the same issue you had. They were visibly retracted. I talked the dealer and he said use the emergency retract. After I did that the beeping stopped.

Re-retracting ours would also stop the beeping, for a trip or two. After the third false alarm, I stopped at an auto parts store for the vacuum caps. Putting them on was much easier than trying to reposition the limit switch assemblies. Have not had a false alarm in the 1800 miles since.
