Are you plugged in out there to shore power? One battery or two? And do you have a small digital multimeter you can take for some testing? That would be the quickest way to get to the bottom of this. Those are about $20 or so at most hardware stores and easy to use. I can direct you in some testing. All follow up are included in our fee and there is no time limit.

Great! Is this a Lippert system or somebody else's leveling system?

I can give you a call as soon as Customer Service notifies me that your payment has cleared. It may be just a Fraud Alert.
