Landing Gear?

I'm sure I can figure it out with a little investigation but thought I would ask here. Today when I went to auto level the panel as always says "grounding jacks" Well... the front jacks grounded but would not stop and eventually blew the breakers behind the battery. Manual mode and all other functions seem to work fine so my guess without investigating is a pressure sensor???
Anyone run into this?

Steve, I had trouble with my landing gear this month also. Technician said it lost its program setting for level. Had to manually, 1jack at a time, get it back to level.
Turn unit to off, then push front button 10 times, then back button 10 times. All the lights on panel will light up and you can manually level the coach. Then hit enter.

Hope that helps

Thanks for the reply and I did get this fixed. A call to Lippert gave me the most common answers and one of the two was actually the solution this time but just not sure which since I did both before I tried them again.

So don't keep us in suspense...what were the Lippert answers?

Didn't means to keep you in suspense.... Lippert's answer was is your fluid low and he told me it needed to be within 1/4" from bottom of fill hole.
Re-calibrate the touch pad in case it lost it's memory for some reason.
If that didn't do it the brain might be shot.

I re-calibrated and my fluid was also 3/4 of a quart low. Did this and worked perfect so not sure which one it was but leaning more towards the fluid was low.

Use ATF
In regards to your leaking cylinder, I thought I had one leaking, but found that one of the lines wasn't tight, tightened and stopped my leaking. Just something you might want to check.
I think someone on this or the other forum did get a cylinder rebuilt, but Lippert just does a remove and replace.

I also had a leaking driver's side front cylinder, but the Lippert techs found a leaky fitting, ended up replacing the fitting, another fitting by the reservoir, and a brand new hose from the reservoir area to the cylinder........all without being asked and of course no charge. I was on cloud nine. Lippert's presence at the rally was top notch.

Yes they can be rebuilt, just find a hydraulic shop in your area. I had one leaking & loosened the 3 bolts on the lower end & turned that piece 1 bolt hole & tightened back, no leaks now for 1 1/2 years. He guy at the hydraulic shop said it would be $100-150 to do the rebuild, Lipperts wanted $500-600 to replace, fortunately turning that piece cured it. I use 15w motorcycle fork oil to top off my reservoir.
