Kwikee 2000 levelling jacks

I am having a problem with my Kwikee 2000 levelling system.They retracted fine but when I wanted to use them again the left front jack extened all by itself! and none of the other 3 will work at all. I live in Australia, found a dealer 1,000 miles away and from my auto electrician's diagnoses, I ordered a new touchpad. Everything worked again...for awhile. Same problem. with help, I came to the conclusion I needed a new control box and the touchpad...nearly $500.00 later. Everything worked fine again. We went for a trip...everything worked great. We came back and because we live in our MH at times we camped for about 2 weeks. When I went to retract the jacks, absolutely nothing worked...tried disconnecting the connector from the back of the control box and re-connecting...nothing. So to get the jacks off the ground...I thought if I reinstalled the old control box with its faulty touchpad, which retracted fine but had only the left front jack working, at least I could get them off the ground and move. It worked...so now I'm back to where I started.

Can anyone please help?

Hello and welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums.
I would recommend that the system be cleared of all fault codes and reset. Also reset the zero point for auto leveling. Always be sure your battery voltage is good when you operate the system. Low voltage is the biggest culprit in DC electrical systems. Do you have the service manual? If not, send me your email address in a private message and I will send you it in a pdf file.

Hi, Thanks for the manual. But how do I clear the system of all fault codes and reset. I do not have auto levelling so I guess there is no resetting the zero point. Thanks.

Unplugging the harness off of the control for a minute and reconnecting will reset the system. I would recommend all connections, including grounds be checked and confirmed to be good.
