Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

Disconnect the touch panel and let is sit for about 5 minutes and then reconnect it again. See if it will reset. Be sure that the voltage is good in the batteries and if they are over 3 years old I would have them load tested to be sure they aren't heading south on you. Failing batteries and dirty cable connections are one of the main causes of leveling jack problems. Get back to me if we need to go further into this and please include the make of the jacks and the number if any off the touch pad. Fleetwood uses a number of manufacturers on their jack systems.
