LCI Lippert Leveler emergency retraction method

Does anyone know the LCI Lippert Leveler emergency retraction method. How to jump the motor if your fuses are out and your rig is stuck with the levelers down. I was told by someone you can jump it with a 12v battery but they were not specific enough for me to try it. Don't want to cause any extra damage.

I did a Google search and found a You Tube video that shows retraction for one type of Lippert system , if this isn't your system , will need a model number for your system.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: Sorry I can't get the link to work . I'll check things out and try again.
Second verse ... same as the first.
Try a Google search for
Lippert ( LCI) Ultra Leveling Jacks: Manual Retraction , for the video

This YouTube is made under the assumption that there is no power and no electronic control of the "4 Point" leveling system - made by Lippert Components (LCI)
Best luck

Winnebago jack retraction

On mine, I removed the control box. There was a jumper cable wire tied to the main cables. Easy to see where it hooks up. Remove the jumper cable as soon as the jacks are fully retracted. I know you need power to make it work. (But I did not want to NOT pass on this info.) I have used it a few times. I also found that removing and replacing the plugs from the control box will sometimes reset things.

If there is no way to restore power to the system you will have to manually open the valves to lower the rig, then pry the rams up to the stowed position and close the valves.

Good Luck
