LCI LEVELING SYSTEM help needed

At CG. Leveling system came on. We manually set 3 jacks. While setting the fourth the system shut off. Checked in house batteries and they say FULL. Is anyone able to help?

Did you try starting over? Our jacks run in pairs, they go down 2 at a time. We level the low front or rear then the other. After that we Raise the low side. I would put a volt meter on the batteries don't trust the gauge and even if they read 12.6 leave the meter on the batteries while you activate the jacks. Many times a battery will show good until you put a load on it

You say the system shut off? Does that mean the panel will not turn on? If that is the case, check both ends of the ground strap from hydraulic pump motor to the frame. This is a very common failure and an easy repair.

Hi there. We bought this Greyhawk new. We have operated these levelers both automatically and manually. But, this is the first time we had them shut off while leveling. The whole system shut off and won’t come back on. We just pulled the panel off under our fridge and we can access the power plug that goes into the system. We unplugged it there to see if it resets, My husband was just under the coach and didn’t see any wires hanging or loose. ??? It’s definitely a power issue. We had 3 levelers down and the system jus5 died when the fourth was coming down.

How is the fluid level for the jacks. Try removing the parking brake, the jacks should retract. Start over set brake, turn on engine and re-level. Check wires on the unit and the fuses

My LCI levelers acted up when the ground connection to the frame went bad. Big black wire between lug on the motor on bolt into the frame.

On our 2018 releasing parking brake does not make jacks retract. If you put it in gear with engine on they retract.

I will try these things in the morning. I did unplug the wire from the back of the panel. I waited about 20 minute’s and then plugged it 8n. The pa El will not turn on. But, I will look at the hydraulic strap. I will look for the big black wire. And, if those don’t work… I will try putting it in gear in the morning. We are trading it in tomorrow! I will be honest with them if we can get it there. YIKES…. What a disastrous trip. Interstate 70 across OHIO is horrible. I will never travel that road again! I’m not going home that way. I don’t care if it takes me 3 days to go home instead of 6.5 hours…. But not on Interstate 70.

I would start with checking the ground wire and the inline fuse at the pump. then the connections at the controller (ours in in the electrical bay screwed to the top of the bin) and the connectors behind the control panel.

I don't know if Jayco has a customer portal where you can look at or download everything on your rv. Thor does. Mine shows a pad with a display that gives codes, mine doesn't have that, it's just a pad with auto and manual. The forum strikes again

So we managed to exhaust all options. We would really like to thank you all for your help. We went to RV dealership on Thursday, but traveled in our toad. We told them what happened. In addition to an elbow fixture cracking and leaking water all over the floor. The trip across Ohio was horrible! They were very understanding. We did the PDI on our new RV. However, they needed to add the Maxx air vents and quick connect. During our PDI their service techs came to the CG and tried to get the jacks up, They had to do this manually, they even connected tp a brand new Lippert panel, but nothing. They feel it is a bad fuse (which we did replace the inline fuse) or a celanoid. Regardless they thanked us for our honesty, we ended up completing our trade purchase on Friday. Tha5 is when we took delivery and that is when we drove the Greyhawk to the dealership. Today, we noticed a SOLD tag hanging on the window. So, I guess all things were good. Again, thank you all!
