Levelers refuse to work

I have a Power Gear leveling system installed on my 2005 Tropi-cal LX that decided to stop working while leveling. I got the fronts down and was lowering the rear jacks when the unit just stopped. I have power to the control panel as evidenced by the "on" light and "jacks down" lights being on. Unit was fully serviced this spring and has been through about 40 cycles since then with no problem. Any ideas? Sounds electrical, perhaps at the unit but can't seem to locate any CB at the pump.

Could be low hydraulic fluid in the reservoir. When the fluid drops below a certain level, the pump automatically shuts off. Have you checked the fluid level? Rook

Once I found the owner's model supplement I located a tripped CB that controls both the levelers and generator. Once reset, all is well for now. Now I wonder what caused the 150 A CB to trip??

Obviously that was a 50A breaker that tripped. Thanks again.
