Atwood Levelegs

Just purchased 2006 Fleetwood Bounder with these levelers. Trying to learn how to operate them - Got them to extend but now cannot get them to retract.
Seems like they want to start going up but then stop and am seeing a red & green light flashing for the driver front.
Any thoughts on these and ideas would be appreciated - am trying to get in touch with Atwood who I understand is now owned by Dometic.
Thank You

Google is your friend, search and you can find out everything. I have removed and cleaned/rebuild all 4 over the last 13 years.

Thank You - not sure am up to rebuilding them - After calling Dometic now find out Lippert is current owner, Called them and they saying problem may be due to low voltage yet low voltage light is not lit on the control panel. Am very sure my house batteries are in good condition with proper voltage.

Lippert said to maybe take the house batteries in to be load tested.??? Thinking the red green lights for driver front are an error code as when I hit retract all - get all red lights and the levelers seem to be trying to raise but then all stops and I get the red grn lights

Start the engine and release the park brake. They should retract, while making a bunch of noise with alarms and such.

When you do the emergency retract keep your foot on brake. My fleetwood has to be put in gear

Have tried the emergency retract and nothing happened. Have talked with a man who has helped us much over the years with our RV's and after giving him the status he is coming by to check out voltage connections etc etc etc
Thank You

Do you have springs on them? If yes . Push up with a 2x4. They have no retracting power.

Maybe this could help, when I had that problem I manually retracted the jacks and then started over. I since I got rid of them and went to hydraulics finally.

Atwood Levelegs are electric, only way to manually retract is with 1/2” socket and battery or electric drill.

You could do it manually but it's about 800 turns/inch.
