Ace 30.1 LCI leveling system failure

I have a 2013 ace 30.1 with the LCI leveling system and all the lights are flashing.
My battery died due to exstended sitting. I tried to put my pushouts in and they wouldnt come in. That is when i discovered the coach battery was dead. I plugged into shore power and the pushouts would pull in.
I charged the battery but the lights are still flashing. Levelers worked perkect before this. Any ideas?

Hit retract and enter at same time that should clear error. Also make sure parking brake is set

Also check your chassis battery. The slides operate off the house batteries, but the levelers operate off the chassis battery. After sitting for a few weeks I had all lights flashing at one time until I had run the engine long enough to get the chassis battery voltage back up to a more normal value. I didn’t try the emergency switch as there was still enough voltage to start the engine. The levelers seem to be more sensitive to voltage than the starter motor.

I know the levelers on my 29.3 will only work with the motor running. Thats with good batteries or not.

On my ACE the hydraulic motor runs off the house batteries.

For the OP, press all 4 direction arrows at the same time to reset the control panel.

I figured it out. If the levelers take longer than 90 seconds to retract they will lock out. The lights will flash and no buttons will function. All you have to do is press the front,rear, right and left arrows at the same time. Wirks perfect now. Thanks for all the input.

On my PDI, they told me to run the engine on the 29.3 while running the jacks up or down.

Probably due to the alternator cranking out a lot of current to support the hydraulic pump that is running.
