Leveling System issues on Georgetown with Ford Chassis

I have a 2011 Georgetown MH with a Ford Chassis. Have had problems with the leveling system (Lippert). It starting showing a Low Voltage error on the Lippert Control panel. Despite the low voltage warning the leveling system still worked on Manua. Well, It final stopped working completely -the panel did not even illuminate. Took the MH to a local MH dealer and they determined the problem was a BTSI Diode (it had actually melted) in the Ford Chassis fuse panel. The Diode was replaced and at the dealer everything worked fine. By the time i got home - about three miles - the Low voltage light was on again.

Anyone out there ever experienced this problem or have any ideas what might be going on.

I dont know that I'd refer to it as a "diode". It's an interlock... Brake/Transmission/Shift. There is a recall on the BTSI system for your year however I'm not sure how it relates to your particular problem. Certainly sounds like they are pulling power for the levelers from the wrong place - nonetheless it's worth an investigation.

Smile BTSI Leveling issue

It is indeed a Diode and not a fuse. Yes, there was a recall on the BTSI but it was for the Shift indicator and an associated wiring harness. I had the recall down at the local Ford MH certified dealership.

My next step is to visit the selling dealership and let them try to sort it out.

Thanks for your input
