Power Gear Touchpad won't work

I have a 2008 Pacifica 36a. After an automatic jack retraction, my jack control panel won't come on. I have checked fuses and breakers, fluid levels and I can't figure it out. I appreciate any help. TIA

Try unplugging the control panel. Mine has done this a couple times. Unplugging it and then plugging it back in has worked for me. If I remember correctly, there are 2 or 3 plugs on the back. The easiest way to get to them was to pull the control panel out of the dash.

Hydro, Where is that connection? Sometimes I have to press on my e-brake several times to get the Jack panel to come on. I looked and can't find where it might be. I guess I don't know what I am looking for.

there is a single wire attached to a switch mounted against the emergency brake. The switch is activated when you depress the E-brake. The spade connector on my Dolphin loses contact occasionally and I have to wiggle it. The easiest way to gain access is to put the slide out and the drivers seat all the way back then cram your body under the dash, be sure to take a flashlight with you, then start looking at the connections on the E-brake pedal.

Make sure your master switch is on,the 12v power for the house I have learned to check .
That's an easy fix I hope

Thank you all for trying, but it's still not working. Since I have a diesel with air brakes, I have a parking brake and not a e-brake, but I still took a look to make sure all was ok under there. The 12v system is all working OK and I cleaned the plug for the control panel. I guess I'll have to take it to my RV guy.

I can help you with this if you're willing to do the work yourself, I have the same problem with my control panel and basically I had to replace it and then rewire it.
There's a fix for it online. You can pm if you want more info.

Today we took our rig to Redlands Truck and RV, and they quickly found the problem. Rats had chewed through some wires. They had also disabled my left hand camera and windshield washer hose. They found more problems then I knew I had. They e-mailed pictured of the damage and have already fixed them. I love this company.

Camping world found our problem.. The cable was unplugged.. That simple.. Its apparently a long cable.. but once plugged in the leveling systems works great.. Very Good service experience at BNA camping world (not cheap, but good).. this I was one of 10 items on our do list.
