They are your rear stabilizers...if they are powered usually that switch is with your front landing gear

rear stabilizers

Thanks for the quick reply but it is not with the land gear. there is a motor that hooks up to the rear Power Stabilizer Jacks.

Do you have auto level with the four jacks? If not, the rear may be manually operated as are mine on my Carriage. Look underneath - - is the unit a piston type stand that comes straight down, or is does it look long with a spiral rod in the middle with a hex device on the outside end- - if it is a rod, that is manually operated. Look around in the storage (usually kept in the rear) and see if there is a long handled tool with a socket on the end that will fit that hex - - then crank away - - just takes a minute. If this is what you have, know that it is not for leveling - - it is for stabilization. Do not try to overcrank it and break it. It will lower at an angle to create great side to side stability.

My 2008 35SB3 has a switch located in the left rear compartment. Look inside on the front wall of the compartment for a rocker switch labeled Extend - Retract......
