Seneca landing gear

I have a 2017 Seneca with a strange problem. After driving my rig and trying to put the jacks down I always get the engage barking brake light that prevents me from lowering my jacks, doesn't matter how I try to lower them. The strange thing is after about 6 hours or the next day everything works as it should. It's almost like something is heating up then working after it cools down or the air system drains a little. Equalizer has never heard of this and could only offer check the ground. If the ground is the problem my thinking is why only after my truck has been running.

Looking for any thoughts.
Thanks

I had this pop up a couple of times the first year i had the truck. I took the key out and restarted and it seem to go away. Normally when you put the truck in park, the brake button pops out. i wonder if the micro switch on the button is not making contact. I did have to replace the ground wire connections in the back of the coach for a different issue and since then i have not had any issues. Not sure if it was the same issue or even related but it seems to be okay now.

On our 2018.5 I could lower mine as the Ignition on light was lit up and I had my keys in my hand. After messing with things I discovered I had left the park lights on, turned them off and the jacks worked.....maybe something similar?

Any chance this could be related to the breaker from the chassis batteries? Similar to what we experienced with ours once, but different in that your steps are not affected.

Here is some detail from the Installation Manual...

Chassis interface connections: Please note that Step 8 and 9 are required. Step 10 is optional.

Step 8 (Keypad Ignition Disable Circuit): Note the “break-outs" near the end of the keypad harness. The Pink wire must receive a +12 VDC Input when the ignition key is in the “on” position. Connect this wire to the ignition positive. This will make the wire "hot” and will inhibit jack extension when the vehicle ignition key is in the on (engine run) position. This also provides for a “jacks down” warning in the event of a jack drifting from the stowed position during travel. This connection is required. Failure to make this connection may create an unsafe condition and may void the warranty.


Step 9 The Black w/ Yellow wire must receive a Ground Input. This Black w/ Yellow wire must be connected to a chassis ground. If this wire is not connected to ground the Engage Park Brake light will be on and AutoLevel will be Denied.

Optional Park Brake Connection for Black/yellow wire:
Contact your chassis manufacturer to verify park brake chassis connection and location. This connection must be done by a technician qualified for chassis electrical systems. Most chassis manufactures are now doing this thru the Dash Module. Attempts to connect this improperly could lead to dash feed back or other issues. This connection to a park brake signal is optional. If this input is not connected to the park brake signal or to ground, AUTO-LEVEL will be continuously denied.
Also, the engage park brake light will be on if the panel is powered up or the key is in the on (engine run position).
*Note on items 8 and 9: If Black/Yellow is connected to a park brake signal (as in step 9) and the pink is connected (required) as in Step 8, an automatic “all retract” will be initiated if the key is turned on (engine run position) and the park brake is released.
