Automatic leveling sensor

2008 Winnebago 39W Destination.
I have been having trouble getting my jacks to operate, they have the automatic leveling system. I am trying to figure where the sensor is located ?
I have read that the jack panel has to communicate with sensor .
any info would help.
Thanks.

Probably somewhere underneath, bolted to a chassis rail or the underside of the flooring, somewhere near the center (front to back). I have a different coach and level system, so can't be more help than that, but the physics of how it works more or less dmands that kind of location. I can see mine when I open a bay door - it is labeled.

Try running it manual before you blame the sensor.

I agree with Gary , we have the same brand coach. However on mine I can reset the "zero" level setting from my control panel. Mine is different from yours but performs similar. Google or youtube your info and see what comes up.

I have a different brand but my 'sensor' or brain to they leveling system is in my storage bay. I would download the wiring diagram it should have a trouble shooting guide, and tell you the voltages.

Scooter,
Are you able to level up manually? If so, you can level manually and reset the controller while level. My previous coach had the Kwikee Level Best 3000 system and I had to reset it once. The procedure was in the owner's manual. It was very simple: get it level then press two buttons on the panel at the same time. I don't know where the controller was on that coach (Winnebago Sightseer). My present coach has PowerGear levelers an the controller is inside the left frame rail behind the front wheel.

No it will not run manually I have tried that I also tried resetting it as per the manual it doesn't seem as if the sensor and pannel are reading each other.

I had the same issue on my power gear that it would not work but the pad had power, I had to reset the breaker and all was well (I pop the breakers when in storage and missed that one when resetting them to move the unit, stupid but simple fix).

I have checked breakers, I have power to the panel, and no the pump is working because the last place I left from I had to use the jumper to retract jacks.
