We cant get the automatic leveling jacks to work. Is there a reset switch?

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model/year of your RV?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '14 RV?

38CK

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing really-they're not working so we thought maybe there was a reset switch somewhere

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
I am here Sundays through Thursdays from around 5 am to 2 pm Mountain time.If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

Check and make sure all fuses are o.k. as well as all circuit breakers.If there are any issues with fuses or circuit breakers this will need to be repaired/resolved to correct this issue.If these are all found to be o.k. try to disconnect the battery(ies) for about 5 minutes then reconnect them and see if they then work.If none of this works let me know here so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete

Thanks Pete
