THOR #17799
LCI Levelers Problem

Hello, I came onto this board hoping to find a solution to my problem.
2013 Thor Windsport….last trip out Jacks wouldn’t auto level correctly, went down and I had to hit manual bottom to level out the Coach. 3 days later we go to leave and I hit ‘Retract’ and they go up halfway and stop. Flashing lights on the panel, can’t figure it out, we go ahead and manually put jacks up.

Home now and had the left side of panel lights blinking
-Wait
-Jacks Down
-Low Voltage
-Engage Park Brake
-Excess Angle

I reset by pushing the 4 Diamonds and now I get
-Jacks Down
Front Diamond Is flashing
Right Diamond light is solid

I’m plugged in, Coach is running, Batteries are 1 year old (though I haven’t check with Volt meter) Hydraulic fluid looks to be full, no leaks.

ANY IDEAS??

Check the 100 amp DC breaker near your house batteries to insure it is not tripped.

Verify you have 12 VDC to the supply side of the hydraulic motor solenoid.

Jump the solenoid that supplies the hydraulic motor to insure the motor runs.

Come back and tell us your results.

Are you retracting in Manual? If so, they only retract as long as you are pushing the button.

Nothing is tripped, I’ll check house batteries tomorrow…..
We retracted by screwing in the Allen and running a ratchet to bring up the landing gear…..sucked.

I haven’t anything when I start Coach up..turns on, but can’t do anything with it.

Sounds like the hydraulic pump isn't running. Check the voltages to/from the pump solenoid as previously mentioned. If you have 12 VDC to the pump motor when humping the solenoid then you have a pump motor issue.

So it’s been a week of trying to diagnose via LippertNOW customer service (they were great by the way)
Gentlemen this morning just went straight with the “get jumper cables and touch the motor, nothing happened so like you guys suggested, looks to be pump motor……new one will be here Weds, at $1400 it better be it!

Update, the pump was the problem. Simple expensive fix.
