There won't be any current sensing for touch down on the individual jacks and you will have to listen for the jack up ratcheting to stop apply power to each jack as it retracts.
You can still get the original controller repaired. There's a place in Canada that does it. Just search by the Atwood part number and the web site will come up. What usually goes bad in the controller is one or more NEC relays (there are four of them). They are obsolete, but still available from China. I bought some a couple of years ago in case mine ever go bad. I paid about $8 each and got them in two weeks.
Yes, I stated it was a manual controller in my post. That keeps it simple and more reliable. Here is the procedure I use to level my coach:
1. Lower all 4 jacks until they contact the ground.
2. Press both front jacks "UP" buttons together to raise the front of the coach (no twisting of the frame).
3. Press both rear jacks "UP" buttons together to raise the rear of the coach to level front to rear (no twisting of the frame).
4. Now level the side that is low by pressing both the front and rear jacks "UP" buttons together on the low side until the coach is level (again no twisting of the frame).
5. Now dump the air bags to take the weight off the tires (your tires will last years longer if you always store your coach with the weight off the tires (prevents Zipper blow outs caused by storing your coach with it's weight on the tires for long periods of time). This procedure reduces the run time of your jacks when raising the coach because it does not have to raise the coach from the full "dumped air bags position".
