Just to be clear, from your signature it appears your coach is a 2008 Holiday Rambler 40SKQ. I wanted to point that out as the Newmar coaches were designed so the the jacks would be retracted with the key in accessory mode with no alarm buzzing.

On ours (2004 Mountain Aire), the parking brake must also be pressed for the jacks to work (in addition to the ignition key on).

I'll have to try it with the key in ACC.

Mine bitches if the park brake isn't on or if they aren't fully retracted. The retraction is monitored by fluid level.
