1999 American Tradition Power gear Jack problem

I went to start my coach today for the first time in about 6 weeks and all of a sudden have a jack problem. They are power gear, the keypad powered up normally and I pressed front jack down and it raised the coach up, but never showed the jacks down lights. When I tried to lower the coach and raise the jack back up nothing. The 2 rear jacks would not lower either. I tried to take off the parking brake and put the coach in drive, but that did not bring up the jack either. Any ideas?

There is a grease fitting on mine. They were sticking, I gave them a shot of grease and they worked fine.

Sounds like the float switch might be sticking or has a bad electrical connection to controller. Jack down light and further operation are inter connected. Good luck and keep us posted.

I found the problem was the inline fuse near the pump and reservoir. I kind of missed that since there was power at the control pad for running the pump. Thanks for the help.
