Stabilizers not working

I recently bought my 2005 31 GS Greyhawk. The battery for the house was bad and I had it replaced. The Stabilizers worked when I installed the new battery but only the rear would operate when I tried them next. Now only the left rear, the closest to the battery will operate. the others will only click.
Has anyone had this problem with their unit? Also. Should my unit have had a manual crank for the levelers. I have one piece, which seems to be the out side piece with the crank portion attached. It will not reach the levelers and if attached under the unit, it hits the bottom of the house and you can not turn it.
I hope this makes sense.
Thanks
David

Do you have any manuals that came with your RV? There may be a reset or relearn procedure that needs to be followed.

What ever system you have was installed after market, stabilizers or leveling jacks were not a factory option.

Stabilizers not working.

I printed a copy of the owners manual, 99 pages. Even punch it and put it in a binder. There is nothing in it about how to fix a problem with the levelers.
Mine are electric with 4 toggles for up and down located in one of the lower compartments near the house battery.
I get most of my instructions from Utube. But nothing on there for this type of stabilizers.
By the way, thanks for the come back.

My manual on the vehicle say to insert the crank onto the stabilizer shaft, crank clockwise to lower ect... I believe the jacks came with the unit originally but possibly the electric part was an add on??
I do have one half of a crank, so that may be the problem.
Still they worked the first time I tried them after changing out the old battery. Now only click.

I'll pull the battery and clean all the connections before I put it back together.

I have BigFoot levelers on mine and when my house battery died they started acting up. After changing the battery they were out of sync. I belive I called big foot and they had me unplug the switch panel for a minute so the system could reset. But if you have big foot levelers give them a call they are very friendly and helpful.

I have been told leveling jacks are hogs on your power and should only be operated when plugged into shore power or when the generator is running. I also had an issue one time where mine didn't want to work at all, and I did what Greyhawk01 just said and disconnected the switch panel for a few minutes and when i put it back on everything worked fine.

I appreciate the advice. I'll give that a try. At the moment I am busy reroofing my garage. My wife Sandra says we are not going anywhere until we get that done. I had a blue tarp on it until the tarp rotted away, then I covered it in clear poly.
Since we returned from our last and first trip in our new Jayco Greyhawk, I have torn off and replaced the whole roof. As of today I have it all dried in with felt and have the edge molding on plus the starter course laid. All my bundles of shingles are on the roof. Next I need to get busy laying them. I should "if the weather cooperates" have it done in just a couple of days. Then I will get back to the Motor Home.
A question: Would disconnecting the battery be the same as disconnecting the switch panel? If not, then how did you do that. Mine operates with 4 separate toggles in the left rear storage box. I don't have the switch panel with the electronic diagram of the 4 jacks on it.
Thanks again for the help.
David
