biglou09, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us. I hope that you will introduce yourself the rest of the group in our New Member Check-In forum.
A little more information will help tremendously. What kind of maintenance were you doing? Does the touch panel for the system light up? Does anything at all happen when you try to operate it? Did the brake by chance get pushed off? How about the battery disconnects? Are the batteries fully charged? Have you checked the fuses and circuit breakers. If all of this is good you can find the Controller (usually next to the pump assembly) and check those fuses. Then if you still have a problem, call HWH for assistance. Let us know what you find.

Welcome biglou09

Your statement that you were going to move the coach indicates the you may have released to brake, which I beleive de-activate the system. Another common problem with getting a coach to air up is that with the hwh system, you have to push the retract button twice to start the air up system. They don't mention it in the manual that we receicved with our new coach and we spent some time and money before a tech pointed it out to us.
