Need Help With Levelers

We have no power to our Atwood Levelers keypad or controllers on our 2012 BayStar 3002. Has anyone manually retracted their Levelers?

It's done by putting a wrench on the nut on the electric motor. The gearing makes it necessary to turn about 500 revolutions per inch of movement. You could use a socket and an electric drill to speed things up.

Another strategy would be to unplug the jack and use a portable jumper battery to power the jack to retract. If I had to do all 4, that would be my choice.

Second to Bob about the battery. But be sure to watch that the jacks retract and reverse the leads if they start to extend. BTW I assume you have no power at the jacks. We were not getting sufficient power because we weren't getting the engine to high idle before starting the jacks up.

We had a 2009 Baystar 3205. If you put the engine in gear there is an override that will bring the jacks up. Good Luck
