Leveler problem..need help

I have a 2000 Fleetwood Flair...V 10 engine...have been rving in NH for five months and the motor home didn't move...went to leave the other day and head back to Fl. and raised the levelers and the indicator gave an indication that they weren't up all the way...checked and looked fine..finally got the light to go out and beeping to stop but putting them up and down a couple of times...half hour down the Interstate and the red light came on and beeping started...stopped and checked all up all the way..put up in a rest area for the night, all ok in the morning until about 30 mins. down the road and back to the beeping and red light...I'm guessing its a faulting indication...

Levelers are those piston type with the big round dish on the bottom..anyone have any ideas on where and what to check ?? Please help beeping is driving me crazy and can't find out how to stop it...plan on pulling a wire to the little speaker wherever it is...until I get back to Fla...

Thanks for the help.......www.allbsdd@aol.com

Who make your leveling system? You can pull the wire off the back of the leveler control panel to silence the alarm. I had similar problems with a newer, than your's, Lippert system. Hap to replace the whole Power Pack.

If they are Power Gear, it could be something as simple as a small rock on the round pad that is not allowing the unit to retract completley.

I'm having similar issue with my Levelbest Kwikee System. Added fluid, cleaned etc. Here is a response from Powergear

Here is a response from Powergear for a possible issue....

The Jacks if extended down an 1" will break the circuit and the touch pad will light the jacks down led. You can check and see if a heat shield is missing that covers the hoses. the heat will cause the fluid in the hose to expand and make the jacks extend down slightly. Stop the coach and press the all retract. they should retract. Thank you.

Check your hydraulic fluid level. On some systems if it is low you get an alarm.

X2 - If the fluid level in the container falls below the sensor level, you will continue to get an alarm even if the jacks are fully retracted. You should be able to see the sensor and it's relationship to the fluid level. Obviously the level needs to be checked with the jacks retracted.

Yep... as mentioned, low fluid level or debris on the jack pads can cause this. Even if the jack is only a fraction away from full retraction it could set off the alarm.

Good luck.
