Power Gear makes, or made, both full electric as well as hydraulic levelers (the hydraulic were powered by a 12-volt pump. If you're referring to the 12 volt electric version then your 12-volt batteries must be in top condition. These jacks use a lot of current and so weak batteries would not work properly or not at all.

Re: Power Gear levelers. My manual says to have key in accessories osition not with engine running. If I start the engine I get a warning sound. They are concerned that you will try to move the MH with jacks extended. We have 03Dolphinlx

I usually have the engine running, I don't think I get the warning unless I take off the parking brake or take it out of park.
