Customer Question
We have a 6-point...

We have a 6-point leveling system lippert on a 5th wheel big horn. We cannot get the jacks to retract automaticaly.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a RV. The RV Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

They system will level great but when we go to retract the jacks like it says in the manual it will not work it errors out

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Everything the manual has said and nothing works. Turned it off and on several times

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the RV Mechanic should be aware of about your RV?

Hopefully not it is a 2016
