Atwood Levelleg goes up when others go down

I have a Tiffin 2007 Allegro Bay on freightliner chasis that uses Atwood Levellegs. I recently posted about a mechanical problem with the screw in the leg that lifts the rig being siezed, well I finally got the leg to unsieze and put it all back together.
Now I have a new problem.
When I hit retract all on the control panel one leg does the opposite of the other three. One goes up three go down and visa versa.
Anyone with any ideas on how to fix this strange issue?

Reverse the wires going to the motor on the leg that goes the wrong way, then they should all go the same way at the same time.

I considered doing this but was wondering if there was a simple fix I somehow missed. Also was worried it might mess up the controller.

Thoughts?

Simple, just reverse wiring on the one motor.

Probability is that you inadvertently swapped the wires when you were repairing the jacks/levelers. A DC motor doesn't care about the polarity, it will just change the direction the motor runs, electric windows, steps, electric awning motors and electric jacks all work on this basic principal. The control system on a unit that old is actually still pretty "dumb".
