level up panel will not turn on

Went out to open up the trailer for the first time. It has been plugged in for about a week and the batteries are fully charged. Pushed the on/off button on the level up control panel and nothing happened. pushed it a bunch of times and it came on, but nothing else would work it wouldn't turn off. Finally decided to cycle the battery switch to see if I could reset it, but now it won't turn on again no matter how many times I push the on/off button. I've done a google search and apparently there is a separate 10 amp fuse near the pump, but I don't expect that is the problem since it came on once. I'm going back out now to find the fuse that is associated with it. Hope someone can help.

Well i couldn't find the fuse. Tried to turn it on again by just holding in the button. it came on, but still can't get any other buttons to work. I'm fearful the panel switches have gone bad somehow

on my RL there is a inline fuse in the front hatch next to the battery. On the right side there is 6-8 in line breakers and tapped off the top side of the bolts there is a automotive style blade fuse. check for voltage at this point .

Nope nothing there. I searched high and low in the battery compartment, there are no inline fuses there. Checked all the connections tight, nothing was loose. All the fuses in the distribution box are fine. I'm convinced it is not a power problem. After repeated pushing on the on/off button I can now get the panel to turn on, then repeated pushing on the up arrow I can get it to cycle through the various modes, even the voltage which said 13.7. I tried same technique on the front legs they will not actuate, neither will the down arrow, or the enter button. I am convinced the keypad has gone bad, go figure. I took out the 8 screws and half heartily tried prying the enclosure off but it doesn't budge. I stopped as I don't want to break anything. I looked for access panels and found none. I have sent an email off to Lippert, I hope they can shed some light, or someone here has some words of wisdom. Not planning a trip in the near future but would sure like to get this resolved. Talk about Achilles heel, one small panel takes down the whole trailer.

Similar thing happened to me. The panel pops out of the frame and there are a couple of wires attached with a little harness. I disconnected it and the replugged in. Got it to work for a short while, but ended up getting a new panel with Lippert. Take a pic of the the panel, call them and they should exchange it.

exactly how does the panel pop out? just the panel or the housing with the door on it?

Of course you have to flip the coach onto the roof to do this

I saw that. it should, I figured that little slot was for prying it out. I was not desperate enough to give it a try yet. I'll give it a try now. thanks. Lippert wrote back and said disconnect for 15 minutes and if it still doesn't work the panel will need replacing
