2007 Damon Challenger LCI electronic leveling problem

We drove home on a 3 hour drive from the campground where I had the leveling jacks extended. When we left, I retracted them normally and drove home. We unloaded the coach for a few more hours with the generator running. When I went to move the coach and drive it to our storage lot, I got an alarm and it said that the jacks were down. I went outside and verified that they were still up. I never touched the switch since I pulled them up over 6 hours ago. I looked online briefly and found a quick remedy and it had me disconnect the alarm after verifying the jacks were up. Does anybody know what might be wrong? Now they won't go down either and the pump doesn't even run. The 5 lights on the left flash also. I pushed all 4 buttons in the middle for manual extension for a reset and this did not work either. I can't even get them to extend in the manual mode. So both auto and manual modes are not working. Please help. Thank you!

I have a 2005 Damon Challenger with this leveling system. The controls on the dash are the same except mine doesn't offer the Manual and Automatic. I assume this means that it is Manual control only. Is this correct?
My jacks fully retract but according to the controls, they haven't and the alarm sounds. I have topped off the fluid but same thing happens. I have to unplug the unit after retracting to shut off the alarm, then plug it back in to extend jacks when I park. My next step is to clean all electrical connections to eliminate that possibility. Is there anything else I need to know to fix this?

So I found part of the problem. There is a 60 amp lever style breaker that tripped. It is located under the chassis battery and mounted to the frame. However, I still cannot lower the jacks, but the alarm is no longer coming on and the jacks down light is no longer on. I unhooked the chassis battery but now I have bigger problems. Now the engine is very hard to start and idles rough and the throttle is unresponsive. I let it idle for an hour to relearn the idle setting but it didn't help. So I disconnected the battery again and the problem still exists. It makes me so mad because the coach only has 13,000 miles and the engine is still like new and ran perfectly before I unhooked the battery. Now I have an RV that is not drivable and uncampable. Any ideas???

Mikey1011, it sounds like you have a bad ground from the battery to the chassis.
