I don't know but .... Some folks install a blinking light, blue or red are the most common colors.. because a blinking light on the dash often means "Security system armed" to those folks who think your vehicle should be their vehicle.

I think it means K-Mart is having a sale.
(Sorry, I couldn't resist. )

Unless someone knows otherwise, I'm guessing wa8yxm is right.

I have a 1999 36ft Discovery and my flashing light is red with an alarm that indicates my jacks aren't all the way up. When I check them they all appear to be completely retracted. Any advice.

In many systems, it can ALSO mean the fluid is low.

Sometimes debris (rocks, tree limbs, etc.) can get caught in the "pads" and limit complete retraction. Lower them and inspect to confirm.

Two suggestions:

1. if you know the manufacturer of your levelers, I would call them for help on identifying the light;
OR
2. Call Coachmen RV
Sales: (800) 353-7383
Service: (800) 453-6064

Hopefully they can help.

Good luck and safe travels

My identical coach doesn't have a 'blue blinking light' on the dash. I has to be something the previous owner installed. I put a big green one on my dash hooked to the turn signals because sometimes they don't cancel and my wife has to shout at me.

Does it blink when unplugged from shore power?

Because the blue light is next to your jacks down light, I'm guessing it has something to do with the operation of your jacks. Maybe it indicates that the jack's power is on, or the parking brake is or isn't engaged?

Well the blinking blue light issue has been resolved it is a security system my father in law forgot to give it to me as he pick up the coach for us when i mentioned something about an alarm a big grin came on his face and he walked over to his coach and retrieved what looks like a remote starter one click and no more blue light thank you all for your help..
