Atwood Level legs & Battery Problems

This a heads up if you have Atwood Level legs.

I have a 2012 Baystar 3002. I had 2 sets of house batteries go bad. When I brought the coach back to my house after the 2nd set was replaced, the Atwood level Legs would not work. The control panel would not come on. Apparently the control module turned itself off when the batteries were disconnected. I contacted Newmar and they conferenced in Atwood. The Atwood rep was going to walk me thru how to get the control module reset but wanted me to see what revision the module was first. I had Rev 4 and she said that they were up to Rev 7 and I needed to get the module replaced. The Rev 4 was generating a 1Mamp constant drain on the house batteries(even in 'store mode'........thus my fast failing batteries. I am very surprised that Newmar/Atwood did not put out a recall for the Rev 4 modules.

The Newmar dealer just received the new module and will install tomorrow.

You may want to see what revision your control module is.

Hmmm. On most coaches I have seen the jacks run off the chassis battery.

One milliamp is not a lot of voltage. I'm sure your propane and CO dectectors are drawing a lot more than that.

I have a 2011 Canyon Star and my Atwood Level legs runs off the Chassis Battery. I have had a dead battery a couple of times and had to unplug the controller and unhook the power wire then hook the power wire back up and then the plug and it fixed it both times. I called atwood and talked to I think her name was Sarah she told me what plug it was I think it had 4 pins on it.

Thanks for the information Don.
Here is some info out of the COM_NET link on the Atwood system.
It does show them coming off the chassis battery.
If your able to keep coach plugged in while not in use the BIRD System should keep all your batteries charged.
I will check to see if there is a TSB for 2008-2010 coach's.
Here is a power shooting guide.
Here is a PSB FOR 2012 Atwood version 3 control.
No TSB for 2011 or 2012 can be found.
This post and all related links can be found in QT's # 3.
