Lippert Leveling System and Jack Down light

Hello all...

I have a 2013 Itasca Sunstar 26HE with the Lippert Leveling System (4 hydraulic jacks).

After the motorhome sits for a period of time (about one week) with the jacks up, when I go to start the vehicle, the Jack Down light will light as if the jacks are down. This problem has been occurring since I bought the motorhome new in August 2013.

I took the vehicle to the dealership and they replaced two hydraulic lines which they said were bulging. Thought they had fixed the problem until I started my motorhome the other day and the Jack Down light lit again.

This will be the third time I will have to bring my motorhome in to the dealership in an attempt to fix this issue.

Has anyone else had this problem and what was your solution?

Thanks

Hi Ross
I searched for all the troubleshooting with the Lippert Leveling System I could find. Many have had the jacks stowed and driving down the road the light would come on but I couldn't find anyone with your same problem to get answers. sorry. I have the same jack system and if my coach is going to be parked for any time at all I level it. I would rather it set on the jacks than on the suspension. I would try doing that for a while and it could be that your jacks need to be used more. I have found that the manufactures of the products Winnebago uses are very helpful if you call them. They don't want Winnebago's customers unhappy. Many times a tech will help you troubleshoot or repair. They know the product better than Winnebago. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
Jesse

Jesse,

Thank you for the hard work. The dealership has already spoken to Lippert. They basically gave them a laundry list of things to do/check, but don't really know why this problem is occurring. I was hoping to narrow down that list. The dealership is trying to get a Lippert Tech to work on my RV and they are going to make contact with Winnebago tomorrow.

I have found that most Winnebagos using the Lippert system have pretty much the same problem after sitting for a while. If you press the retract and enter at the same time the jacks down, or any error code will clear and the system will return to normal.

That sounds good. I have a friend stop by today that was a tech for a Winnebago dealership. I told him what your jacks are doing and what type they are. He said that there are adjustable switches on each jack that alert the driver if a jack is not stowed. He believes that at least one if them is set too sensitive. He said it could also be a bad float indicator.
I would like to know what they find.
Jesse
