Question Help with the Hydraulic Leveling system

We just bought a used 1992 Pace Arrow we are new to all this, and we cannot get the leveling system to work. The control panel does not even light up and my husband cannot find the fuse. Does anyone know what to do? Please help

Typically it needs to be either in run or ACC, don't start looking for a fuse until you know there is no power going to it. If a fuse is blown that is sign of other problems.

Also you have to have the parking brake on.

Thank you for your suggestions, we have tried all these. It has HWH hydraulics the book shows multiple fuses but can only find one. Any idea as to where they would be?

I had the same problem on our last trip & had to raise the jacks manually. Our controller box is under the front of the MH. The main fuse is inside the controller box behind a clear plastic cover. I replaced the fuse & on activating the panel controls it blew again. Had to order a new electronic board for the control box. Once installed by my dealer everyting worked fine. $70.00 for the new board & $200.00 for intallation.

Painfully obvious I know but I thought my jacks were having an issue, turns out when vehical was in park and running or ACC the parking brake had to be set or they will not turn on. Also, I learned you must have at least 1 house battery installed or they also will not work. The parking brake I get but I have no idea why the house battery is critical

The house battery is the power source. The jacks are hooked to the house battery not the chassis battery.

I have a simular problem, i have the same MH and leveling system. Mine has power, i press the power button one time it energizes, i press it a second time to drop jacks, it takes about 10 sec, then the battery indicator comes on. I have tried this with MH running and while in ACC position.
Thank you in adv for any and all assistance
