Leveling jacks

I just purchased my 2001 tradewinds and am just starting to go through it. I leveled the home and when I retract the legs they go up all the way but the warning light and buzzer stay on. Any suggestions?

Thanks, I will try that. They all seem to be in fully retracted position

There is a float switch in the reservoir that measures if it is totally full. The reason for only filling when the jacks are retracted is if you fill when they are down they won't retract fully if the reservoir is over filled.

Check all 4 cyliders for leakage at the seals. Fluid has to go somewhere. I had this happen to my left rear jack. I removed the cylinder and had it overhauled.
