Can't help with the fuse location, but leveling systems often have interlocks to prevent jack operation. Make sure transmission is in neutral and parking brake is on. You might read in your Owner's manual to find if there are other interlocks, perhaps slides out?

I made sure brake on and Tran in neutral. I haven't checked the slides. They have been in, but I will check. Would you know the procedure to raise the hydraulic manually?

Most hydraulic jacks are raised by springs, so there is no manual method.

The jacks should raise if you start the engine and put the transmission in gear. (emergency method)

What manufacturer jacks do you have? Power Gear? HWH? etc?

HWH jacks can be raised manually, sort of. There is a way to release the pressure at the pump, solenoid assembly. That will allow the springs to pull up the jacks. If HWH call them, I hear they have great tech help and can walk you through the process.
