Weirder issue. My Jacks Down icon comes on, no alarm and the jack are up. I pried each jack to verify it was up then hit the store again. Still on. While driving it flashes. On then off. Sometimes on for 2 minutes and off for 5. I will double check the oil level tomorrow. I'll look thru the manual to see what they recommend.

It's likely just a switch out of adjustment.
This... if you change one, change them all at the same time.. they are inexpensive.

when the jacks retract, there's a switch that gets pressed in by the jack.. those go bad...

when the jacks are down next, crawl under there and look. They look like a simple push button..

Don't panic. Just reach down, hit the on switch, then store jacks. It is that simple. Heat is expanding fluid in the system. I don't even bother taking it out of cruise control.

Had same expansion that CJ talks about. Cold morning in the mountains to hot day on the road. Alarm went off, I turned on the HWH panel, hit store, no problem. It takes some pressure on the Jack to overcome that spring. It won't just"drop".
