Power gear jack code

Last time we retracted the jack's there was some corrosion on a leg that put the control into failure mode. With a little persuasion we got the problem jack retracted. Now...I'm trying to lower the jack's.
The control panel flashes in the failure mode cause it thinks the jack's are still
Does anyone know the control code to correct the panel.

With the jacks up, would it be possible to remove all power to the control panel? Re-Boot the thing. Hook the power back up and try again.

You did not state if your system is electric or hydraulic. I think you have electric from what info you did give us. Depending on your version the reset could be to hold down the power, manual and auto button until all led's are lit. The other version is to just hold down the On/Off button until all led's light up. You may have sheared a pin in the jack and to repair it you will need to remove the jack assembly and first pull the motor and gear assembly and check the pin in the worm gear. If it is ok, there are other pins in gear box and jack. Once repaired, use a 12 volt power source at each jack and power them through the quick connector (separated from harness) until they are 4 -6 inches below full up. Reset controls and do a retract all. Good luck and keep us posted.

Power Gear's first solution to any jack or slideout problem is to disconnect the chassis battery for a minute then reconnect and try again. This has worked for me so far with either jack or slideout problems. Fortunately for me there are battery disconnect switches in the control panel next to the entry door on my rig.
