Levelers self deployed while driving

At 60mph my LCI self levelers lowered while on the freeway! Has this happened to anyone else? When stopped rear wheels were off the ground.

What kind of RV did this happen on. I can tell you I would not drive it until that issue is resolved. That's an accident waiting to happen.

I would suspect somebody has tampered with that system, or it was improperly installed. There's a good reason the control panel shouldn't even have power available to it with the engine running?

Levelers Deployed

09 Monaco Monarch drug the levelers at least 200+ yrds. before coming to a safe stop. It's in the shop now. This is more than oil in the motor. Hoping when all is said and done that LCI will man up and cover the cost of repairs. I would like to avoid a legal fight. This could have been a "SIG Alert" situation.

Not so sure about that. My rig will let me run the levelers down once I hit air bag dump. after that, if I start the engine the levelers are still down and can in fact put it in gear and drive forward. DON'T ASK ME HOW I KNOW THAT TOO !

My levelers have no power to the panel when the engine is running.
