Shouldnt the coach be level when you run the slides in or out? I take the extra time to level before bringing them out. And I bring them in before airing up, or retracting the jacks.

Mine looks like that. But, I get no response from any of the buttons on the keypad. I suspect a blown fuse somewhere. No idea where though. These 12 volt panels have SO many circuits in them. :-)
