I hope these four pics come through. The first is the front gen panel, second is pointing to the inside the generator's compartment and up to the right, third zeroing in on the breaker's location and pic 4 is a view of the breaker. It's not like a house breaker but a lever you move.

Hope this helps you to located your breaker.

Steve

Here are a few snap shots of places which challenged the system. I now carry blocks and planks. These were taken from Mark's Ridge Vineyard in OR, they are a Harvest Host vineyard near Sweethome OR. First two Pics are of the motorhome with leveling jacks down. Next two pictures were the view from our "dinner table" and out the front windshield. We spent three wonderful days there. If you're tired of the RV parking lots, try Harvest Host. With our solar setup, our current constraint is water and holding tank capacity. Black never fills and gray always does. We are learning the tricks and can now go four days between dumps and fill ups with out missing a shower or doing the dishes.

Your pictures of the illusive breaker will be a great help to me and to others. My coach is in the shop waiting for the parts from Lippert but I'll pop down tomorrow and have a look.
As far as being helpful to the levelling system I have some of those plastic squares used for travel trailers (co-pilot calls them Lego). They help a bit but the weight of the coach can sure mangle them. I'm looking for a material that is lighter than wood that can be cut to go under the elephant feet without distorting.

I now have another problem with the Lippert levelling system on my 2011 Astoria. I had the problem before the new pump and leakproof coupler where recently installed but now it seems to be worse. When the jacks go down and level, the fluid in the reservoir is just under the halfway seam. When trying the retract the jacks something run for about a minute and then stops. The Jacks are still down. Lippert always says to add more fluid This works but the reservoir usually overflows a bit. Now the jacks are up and the tank is full. Put the jacks down and everything is fine. Try to retract and motor runs, then stops, add more fluid, jacks come up and tank overflows. Coach is parked on clean concrete and there are no visible leaks plus reservoir is full. Seems to me that the tank is undersized but would like to know if anyone out there has experienced this phenomenon and is there a fix.

not to mess you up even more
but my resivior in the tuscany will overflow about every 5th time the jacks go down and are retracted because it was blowing the cap off
I thought i had a leak and found it was from the fluid spraying back in the resivior, and making a mess as the lid lifted
so i zip tied the cap to keep it tighter in the hole. it still will dribble from time to time.
I think a bigger container would help as well.

thank you

apgarmd,

I know this post is old but I am so glad it is still here! We had an issue with our jacks on our Damon Tuscany and my husband was stressed. He was on you tube looking for an answer and after a couple hours I typed into Google our problem and came across this forum and your post! My husband had just figured out how to reset everything and I read your post to him and we went out and looked. He showed me how hard it was to get to it for a manual over ride and then he checked the breaker and I'll be damned if it wasn't popped! Fixed the problem in less than 5 minutes! So cool :-) Really, thanks again
