Levelers won't work

I flipped the switch to level and the lights come on. When I move the levers to level the motorhome I hear a solenoid click, but there is no moter that runs and the jacks do not extend. What should I be looking for?

It could also be a bad ground.

Check for voltage through the solenoid to motor when someone pushes level button.

Also, make sure the emergency brake is on. Mine will not operate without the e-brake....

Had the same problem - jacks were down, motor was fried. Hard to get road service in Maine! Found A.L.T. RV service through a nearby campground, they did a great job. Impossible to get a dealer to do field work. Good luck with yours.

there are HD fuse(30) and(40) amp ones that run the solinoids and the pump motor maybe you blew a fuse.usually inline right at the motor and pump area
must be old if it has levers?
