if they are HWH hydraulic, extend the leveling jacks as far as you can. Get under coach and spray liberally the chrome cylinders with WD40. I take some paper towels to wipe things off too. Spray up on the seal. After all four are cleaned, perform the auto store. They should retract better. I do a cleaning like this at least annually, sooner if one seems to be getting slow. FWIW I'm due that cleaning but heavy rains forecast the next few days.

Check your hydraulic fluid level.

Yep. This is what worked for me on my HWH system. No more annoying bong when making right hand turns. Apparently this system is very sensitive to the slightest lack of fluid. I only needed to add maybe a 1/4-1/2 cup

hwh does not have a low fluid alarm. the tank can be empty, and no alarm will sound.
power gear systems use a float in the tank to monitor fluid level. if its low, there is an alarm.

the only alarm hwh uses is when one or more cylinders has extended more than 1/2 inch. there is also a red light on the touch panel that will come on if the cylinder extends. thats the four red lights on the touch panel.
the only time low fluid effects our system is during extension of the jacks, or the extension and retraction of room cylinders.

You're right, I thought I had an HWH system. I do not. I'm not near my coach, and I can't remember what I have, but it definitely has a low fluid alarm. It has the three rocker switches for levelling.

looking at Monaco leveling systems indicates that they used various leveling systems so I would ask Oldeyes more specific information. He said his "three leveling system" and I could not find anything with that name but did get several hits for Monaco using electric as well as hydraulic including HWH and Equalizer Systems. So Oldeyes give us some more information on your coach.
My system is HWH and problem would up being week return springs. Good luck Richard
