New Damon Asotria...when starting my motorhome all five warning lights on my LCI Leveling sytem pad light simultanteously and flash. They do not go out no matter how long I run engine. I can not engage the leveling sytem. My jacks are fully retracted. Is there an over-ride or reset command that will correct this problem?

Sumar...sorry to hear about your problem. I just checked LCI's website
LCI
and didn't see anything about that but they do say, many times over, to call them. The number is on the site.
I'm sure it's something simple...

Thanks Chandler and coach nugget will check out both suggestions. Guess the fluid first, then the call.

Chandler, he is really doing well for what he went through.
We have reservations for a campground in Maine for Columbus day weekend...that is our goal..to be able to go by then. Hopefully his jaw will be "unwired", as it will be 8 weeks, but time will tell.
He already lost 22 pounds, just when they say now is not the time to lose weight.
Thanks for asking....
Sue

That's great Sue! I'm sure he's looking at the new coach and dreaming of the good times to come..I know that would motivate me!
Glad he's doing well..Please give him my best.

We had this issue in our Tuscany. If you hold all four directional buttons down together for a few seconds it will 'reset' the system.

Yes, we too have this problem on our new 2008 Astoria. If the system reset procedure does not work, then you poped the circuit breaker under the "hood" area of the coach. It is located in the upper right side above the generator. You have to stick your head up in there and look for a circuit connector with a small breaker installed on the firewall. I think the breaker says "high voltage" or something and its spray painted red.

I think I am running low on voltage with the coach not plugged in. Then it pops. We were stuck in Amarillo on our first trip for an hour one morning until my dealer service manager walked me through it. (Thanks David H.)

Thanks Woodieboys, and DWM....hit the 4 buttons at the same time and it worked!! Good tip.
My husband located the switch in the area you talked about DMW in case he needs it the next time.
This board is invaluable!!

We found out the hard way. I took the coach in to to Freightliner to have the brakes looked at (they locked up on me and the "s cams" needed to be lubricated). The tech called me out to the shop because be could not get jacks to retract.

Imagine my surprise when I walked out into the shop and saw the rear end of the coach was raised 6" off the ground by the jacks alone. The tech pulled too much juice and it popped the breaker. We had to reset the system and that breaker in order to get them working again. But only after 8 hours of having the tech work on it before calling my dealer to ge tthe information.

Then they wanted to charge me $1000 to get my coach back. That is a whole other story...

My wife and I have a 2004 Damon Challenger with a Powergear Semi-automatic leveling system. We are on vacation and have experienced a low voltge readout on the leveling system touchpad. After resetting the system several times we were able to retract the levelers but now the system error lights are all lit and we cannot lower the levelers. I spoke to a service center in the area who told me to remove the control panel from the dash and unplug it for a couple of minutes and then try it again. This did not work. Any other ideas on how to get the system operable again? Oh yea, this is the Labor Day weekend and nobody is able to talk to us until Tuesday. Any comments would be appreciated.
