I believe you are mistaken. I cannot imagine your leveling jacks being electric they might be but more likely are hydraulic. if you look at the panel where the hydraulic pump is there should be a controller beside it with lights and fuses check the fuses and see if they are good.
Hello there - yes, you are right - the jacks are hydraulic. We looked at the pane where the hydraulic pump is, and looked over the fuses, but we didn't see any that are labelled jacks - will check again. Thanks so much,

I have HWH jacks that require engine running, parking brake set before jacks come done. I had a problem before when one jack would not come done because the resorvoir was low. Once we filled it back to proper level all worked ok. Can you check your hydraulic fluid resorvoir? Mine is located behind driver wheel on the pump in front of driver side slide.

Can you hear the pump running when you press the level button? Are the lights on the control panel lit? Could be several things, need more information.

No, we do not hear the pump running. The automode light flicks back and & forth between green & red for about 30 seconds, and then stops - and nothing happens.

Nobody has ask this question far as I can see:

WHAT DOES the jack control panel say? (What LED's are Glowing)..

For example "Set Parking Brake" may be flashing, even if the brake is set.. I can tell you how to fix this.

NO lights at all is also indicative of a problem.. One of which is easy to fix. the rest of which are expensive to fix.

you might look for your thermal breaker in the hydraulics bay - if it has tripped (maybe a yellow "flag" popped out), you'll need to reset it. The flashing indicators may mean you need to reset the breaker - did in mine.

moscow, what brand of leveling jacks do you have? look at the touch panel. the name of the mfg will be on there. it makes a difference. how it operates, and the repair of the system depends on the brand. if its hwh, i can help. 602-549-3638/ i do work for hwh.
i do not sell parts or solicit service work on this forym.

The Kwikee brand name also appears on some jack systems (Kwikee is part of Power Gear).

And yes, there are electric jacks on some lighter weight coaches. However, not on this one.
