I tried finding more information on your system and found there's not much out there. I didn't even realize there was a electric only system.

I suspect it's only used on lighter units. Everything seems to be pretty automatic with the system so you really don't have much manual control over it.

When you switch to manual mode the first thing it does is put all 4 jacks on the ground with a little pressure. Then depressing one of the four directional buttons causes both jacks on that side to operate in tandem. I guess this is to lessen any flex of the frame. I heard NRV had a problem with windshields popping and maybe this system was their fix on lighter units. That's just a guess.

Someone suggested unplugging the rear jacks and I haven't tried that yet but I'm betting the system won't allow me any control until it gets a signal that all 4 jacks are in contact with the ground. If it ever stops raining long enough we'll see.

Thanks. I have all the manuals but they only show how to operate the system for normal purposes. I guess what I want to do is considered outside those parameters.
