Bottom edge of the breaker has a piece about 1/2 -1" long that pushes straight up and will click in place. If you have been trying the slides or jacks, that piece may be hot.
My 7.5 Generac has a large circuit breaker that is in the compartment just ahead of the power board,in the battery compartment and may be the same wherever your batteries are. Same type of breaker as the slides. Now this is the one that will burn a finger if you've tried your gennie start several times.
I have been told to prime my gennie for 15-30 seconds before styarting to heat it up and get fuel to it, but I'm thinking that something in there is pulling a lot of power and is actually flooding the engine. Gonna be taking it in to a Generac specialist sonn so they can check the whole system.

Why

Why do the levelling jacks keep tripping the 150 amp breaker? I'm confused...

At what point does the breaker trip? Could be that the hydraulic pump motor is frozen because of bad bearings. That is a common problem because of where it is mounted, water seeps into the motor and causes the bearing to go bad. Could be a shorted control relay, looks like the old style Ford starter relay it mounted new the pump motor. Could be a shorted motor. Try disconnecting the 12 volt power cable from the motor tape or protect the end so it won't touch any metal. Try to operate the jacks if the breaker doesn't trip the motor is the problem. If that is your problem the motor can be repaired by any starter rebuilding shop. You will have to remove the motor from the pump and take it to them.
