Power+Plus Electric Leveling System

My leveling system quit on my class A Georgie Boy. The control box is bad and the system is obsolete so I can't find parts. I attached pictures of the box and the model number in case anyone has seen it someplace.
I am thinking of eliminating the box and going with four toggle switches as the jacks work fine.
I am in need of a wiring diagram that shows what relays, etc. I will need.
If anyone can help with this project I would appreciate it.
I would buy a control box from some other manufacturer if one is compatible with my jacks.

I came across your Forum while browsing for answers to my problem, I hadn't heard of it before.
I am a member of the Good Sam RVNet forum.
I an owner of an older RV, so I'm sure I will come back again.
I have found it difficult to find a quality RV repair shop in my area, so I try to do most repairs myself.

It's not my forum, I'm just lucky enough to be a member.


There are a few RV repair review sites and you may be able to find online and hopefully their will be recommended for you.

Have you tested the control box? How do you know that it is bad? There should be a fuse for power to the control box. The MH needs to have the parking brake set and the master switch on.

The box has power coming in, but nothing else. No lights at all. Parking brake is on.

Nothing happens when you push the switches. Tried jumping across the switch, nothing happens.

So, I think the box is bad. I do not have any paperwork that tells the troubleshooting procedure.

The toggle switch idea sounds pretty good (and cheap), but if you want the system to work as designed - you might be able to find the parts you need at an RV Salvage yard. There are several big one you could call.

Thank you. I have tried Colaw and Visone, no luck so far. I'm not concerned with the jacks working as designed, I just want to put them down and pick them up again as needed. I will go with the toggle switch idea, but I need to find out what I need as far as relays, etc. I also hate to remove the old system only to find out someone has a new control box sitting on the back of the shelf somewhere.

If you have power at the control panel but no lights at all check for a missing ground. Mine grounds thru the parking brake switch but yours may ground somewhere else.
