Hello and thank you for using Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I'd like to try and help. I am sorry that you are having issues with your RV, I know this can be frustrating. On your issue, Usually there is a micro switch that is on the cylinders for the jacks. This will trip when the jacks are all the way up to shut the lamps off. I would go around them and look for these switches. They are a normally closed switch and they open when they are dropped. So they can be checked with a multi meter to see switch one is bad. I hope this helps with your question. Thank you
