Power Gear Electric jacks not functioning properly?

I recently had a shear pin break on one of my Power gear electric jacks, my fault Now after replacement and reinstall I've noticed that the coach does not level properly even though it shows level on control pad. I've tried to go into Manual mode and the jacks come down and keep going once they touch ground which from what I understand they should stop. Ends up leaving me with a very high step down. I've read all the support documents on line and have also called Lippert systems. They said, I don't know but will get back to you. I was wondering if someone out there is more knowledgeable than I to help me get this straightened out.
When in auto mode the front steps are up high as well, I try to go into manual mode and I have no control over the jacks, almost as if the system recognized the jacks are down and locks me out. ANY input would be great, thanks in advance!
system is a control panel 140-1226 and a system board of 14-1224 rev OG
WHAT AM I MISSING?????

If the shear pin was replaced, does the controller need to be reset? I know some electric jacks count the motor revolutions to know how far they're extended. This would likely be stored in the controller.

Also, maybe you need to teach the controller what level is. My Attwood levelers have a button sequence to teach what's level. I've had to do this after disconnecting the chassis battery.

In talking with Power Gear I pointed out that there might be a step missing from the manual. The're looking into it as they only used these jacks for a couple years.

There is a reset procedure that requires all 4 jacks to be placed down 6" or so and then there are some control panel commands needed. I can't remember what exactly they are. I would refer to owners manual and google.

Good luck

Attached is the Power Gear Calibration/Installation procedure. The Calibration procedure is on page 4. I have used it to set zero point.

All I have say is Magnets. Check the magnets to make sure you did not lose one. It will create havoc if one is missing.
