Issue with leveling jack alarm

Anyone experience this or know what is going on?

Pull into parking space at a store, slight decline but not major slope. Put in park and auto air brake engages. Turn off ignition and I get a load tone alarm and a buzzing vibration from the driver side of the engine bay. This is on a class C Freightliner. I look back at my Bigfoot leveling control panel and see two flashing lights. Only way I get the alarm and buzzing to stop is to level the vehicle and then set it back down.

Is this an alarm telling me I am on a hill? That seems odd, like I can never park for few minutes on a slope, can't be.

Is it an alarm saying the jacks are down? But that is backwards too, should alarm when the ignition goes on, not off.

Any ideas? Ghosts? It can't be possessed yet, it is only 2 weeks old, right?

Do to the fact that we only have limited info. on your "new Coach" and its leveling system, your manual for the leveling system would be your best friend right now. Let us know how you make out, and if you provide the folks here with more info. on your Coach and working systems they will be able to better help you out. Good luck

Only time mine does this is when the fluid level is low. Check it. It could have been low from the original fill at the factory.

Thanks for the manual link. I have a much shorter manual that I read but didn't help. I'll check the fluid level. Looks like each jack has its own fluid reservoir.
