One thing you all are missing here is that all of the circuit boards that run all of your appliances require 12volt DC power to operate whether you are on shore power or generator power. The fridge will operate as long as you have a 12 volt source. The only thing on your fridge that requires 110 volt ac power is the ice maker and 110 volt heating elements. The rest of the fridge is run on 12 volt dc power , you must have a 12 volt source in order to operate your fridge. Your air conditioner's require both 12volt power and 110 volt AC power to operate, the thermostat and control circuit board require the 12 volt DC power while the compressor and fan require the 110volt AC power. Even the circuit boards for the dish washer and washer/dryer have built in transformers to convert the 110 volt AC power to 12 volt DC power in order to operate.

Just got home to Calgary, Canada from 5 months wintering in Texas. Dropped the rig. Reconnected today and tried to raise the front jacks, but no power to the Levelup controller. Removed the controller from the cable and checked voltage between the red and white wires (dead). Checked fuses in main panel and all appear to be OK. Any suggestions? Anyone know how to raise the front jacks manually?

I have had the same problem on our 2012 Redwood. If your control panel has no power then your Leveling control module is bad. I have went thru two of these module in the past two years. You can go to the top of your Hyd motor and use a drill to raise and lower your jacks. If you call Lippert customer service they can help you.

did you try connecting to your tow vehicle to see if just your batteries are discharged ???

My 38gk will discharge all 3 batteries when not connected even with everything shut off and the master disconnect off ... usually have to back close enough to get the umbilical connected in order to put some charge in it !

Look in the wiring harness just under the hydraulic pump. There should be an In-Line fuse that provides power to the Level-up control panel that may have blown.
There is a re-wiring of that line because as originally supplied there is a random blowing of that fuse. We went through a few fuses until we moved that line over to main distribution buss on the back wall of the battery compartment.

Call the Crossroads Service Center, there is a Technical Service Bulletin ( TSB) out on the 10Amp inline fuse for the hydraulics. It involse adding a new bus bar to the Trombetta syliniod. Search on TSB in this forum for more info. Good luck.

Thanks, I will call the service center to get the Tech Bulletin and install the new bus bar so this should not happen again. I wonder why Redwood does not send out these Technical Bulletins as Manufacturers recalls so everyone's rigs will get fixed and won't have to go through the problems we did.

It might be the Wizard mode that Inteli-power 4000 series has. Look at this link and see if your distribution panel looks like it.

While this panel only is for 30 amp main, the same company has a seperate module that is their Wizard for charging.
