Automatic Leveling System Probem Fixed

I thought I would pass along a cure to a specific problem I had with my Lippert auto-leveling system on my 2011 RW36RE.

SYMPTOM:
Whether in Auto mode or Manual mode, any operation from the touchpad would only last for 3 or 4 seconds, then stop. For instance; if I wanted to retract the rear jacks in manual mode, it would take several 3-to-4 second operations to ultimately retract the jacks.

CURE:
Replacing the faulty 50 Amp auto-reset circuit breaker (Buss CBP 50BA). It's a small device with two terminal posts on it located near various other Lippert hydraulic and electrical components inside the battery compartment. The device costs less than five dollars.

Perhaps this information may help someone in the future.

Don't know what year your Redwood was built, but if you have a 2013 and one half, or earlier, there is a Technical Service Bulletin out to fix the issue with the Jacks and the hydrolic slides.

The TSB was issued to service centers last year. If you are experiencing hydraulic jack retract issues and/or hydraulic slide retract issue such as the fuse blowing out, the TSB involves the Trombetta soiliniod, wiring harness and electrical connection block. If you have issues as describe you should contact a service center, they should know about the TSB.

There are way more pictures there than are needed to change the circuit breaker.

I have a 2013 RW36RL Redwood

Problem: Slides and jacks hesitating shutting on and off many times before completely retracting. I replaced my coach batteries first, not the problem, but they were old and did need replacing anyway they were four years old.

Solution:
You have made my day on fixing a problem that probably would of cost hundreds of dollars to fix. I will mention that if you have this problem as stated you just need to find the power bar. It will be attached to the wall somewhere in the battery compartment. Take it off the wall with the two screws and you will see that these are all breakers attached to this bar. I checked everyone and as stated, the one that has the red battery wire running up to the Trombetta reversing solenoid that goes to the motor was the problem. It is a 12 volt 50 amp breaker. It is grey in color but the auto parts item is black, no problem it is the same thing. I bought a new one for under $6 at the auto parts store, it is a pegged item in the electrical area. You remove the two wires from this breaker and the breaker just comes off of the power bar. Put the new one in its place and reattach the wires, problem solved. reattach the power bar back on the wall with the two screws

Note: Be sure to unhook the positive red wire from your batteries before working on this area, then reattach after you have replaced the breaker.

Thanks again for all of your postings, I hope this helps someone else.

RJ, be advised that your problem may come back because a 50 amp self resetting breaker is too small. The hydraulic pump under a heavy load can draw upwards of 80 amps.
I had the same problem with my 2012 RL and once I installed the larger breaker no problems.
