Leveling jacks will not retract

We have a 2006 Winnebago Voyage. Jacks were working fine last week but today they will not retract. Lights 1 and 2 on the panel are on. Any idea what the problem is?

Check the level of hydraulic fluid. Mine won't retract, if it's low.

Do you have an HWH leveling system? If so, go on their website and download the manual and trouble shooting guide for your system. Those resources should give you the information you need.

I experienced the same issue awhile back. Here is what I did to solve the problem and not sure which one corrected the issue.
I started by making sure the vent on the hydraulic reservoir was clean, replaced the retraction springs on the ones that where a problem and lube the hydraulic cylinders while they are extended.
Unless your leveling system requires power other than powering up your control panel, when you activate the Store button the system relies on the retraction springs to force the hydraulic fluid back into the storage tank.
