Jacks Won't Retract

help. I have a 2015Class C Thor outlaw and the jacks won't retrack. Is there some memory or reset button. I may have put the jacks down too far to begin with.

Just a couple guess's. Is the emergency break on. Is the key in the start position. Is the gear selector in P. Check under the MH to make sure you don't have a leak and have lost fluid. More info. such as the type of jack's and type of control panel may help others in diagnosing the problem. Good luck!

I have a 2015 Thor outlaw 29H. The first time I took it camping last year the jacks extended all the way and stayed like that, all 4 wheels off the ground. The Jack control module was replaced under warranty and, so far, there has not been a repeat.

Working on my neighbors HWH system (he's 80)... I found in the manual a statement about a timer circuit... and found that in some cases you can confuse the panel and when that happens nothing happens until the timer circuit times out... in this case the manual said 20 minutes... so I walked away... let it sit for an hour... came back... MADE sure that the e-brake was set, the transmission was in N (Class A) and the KEY WAS ON... I hit the power button the HWH system... than hit the auto/retract and by golly they started to retract and the lights changed to safe mode (travel)..

Of course I questioned my neighbor and he had no clue it could be confused.... and I had not seen how he'd tried to retract the legs.. He likes to hide from his wife... he starts the MH and will either turn on the air/heat as needed and will take a nap... on this day, the coach was not level.... smile...

I have a 2004 damon intruder class A I bought new.

last year I was in Grand Canyon and when we tried to retract they would not go up. I had been having the low jack senors trigger prior but not sure related. At this point it was like I had zero power to the system, not lights or anything.

Anyway, I had to unhook fluid lines to drain out fluid to retract.

Went on to lake havasu and did not try the jacks as site was level. However when I was putting my lawn chairs back into the mid-coach storage bay pass through when heading home, I noticed a box attached to the ceiling of that basement storage bay. I crawled in and a wire was pulled out. Then noticed the box had same branding as the jack system. This evidently was the auto leveling box (mid coach/center in bay) and I plugged back in the lose wire and turned on the system and all my power was back.

I must have pulled out the wire in Grand Canyon and didn't notice.

I have owned the RV for 12 years and put chairs in/out and never had the issue or knew this could happen.

May not be your issue but it was a cheap fix
