« on: November 23, 2009, 07:55:28 PM »
How to reset Atwood level legs system,,while lowering the jacks we stopped them when they were half out and moved the vechicle about a foot then try to lower again, now they won't go down and don't know if they are up all the way, they look up all the way but I am getting a audible alarm and a flashing red and a flashing green light from the left front...any help appreciated..we don't have a manual to reset the system..THANKS,

The following are two possible causes from the Levelegs troubleshooting guide. Hope this helps.

False RET (full retraction) Error Mode
a. For extensions greater than 20 seconds, if the retraction
time for any leveler is less than the extension time
(indicating premature clutching prior to full retraction), the
following occurs:
1. Warning alarm will sound.
2. Power is removed from the control box disabling
normal operations. (This is done to encourage operator
to do a visual inspection of levelers prior to further
leveling operations.)
3. The red and green LEDís for the particular leveler will
blink on and off to indicate the system is in an error
mode.
b. To proceed, the following is required:
1. Turn system on. This will shut the warning alarm off.
2. Visually inspect the leveler.
3. If it is required, activate levelers to correct problem.
Simultaneously press the EXTEND or RETRACT mode
switch along with the adjacent two (2) leveler switches
common to the lit LEDís. In error mode, any leveler can
be activated in this manner.
4. Complete an ALL RETRACT operation and system is now
out of error mode and ready for normal operations.

No Current Error Mode
a. During any operation if no current is detected from leveler
after leveler is activated, the following occurs:
1. Warning alarm will sound.
2. Power is removed from the control box disabling
normal operations.
3. The red and green LEDís for that leveler will blink on
and off to indicate the system is in an error mode.
b. To proceed, the following is required:
1. Turn system on. This will shut the warning alarm off.
2. Supply power to the leveler.
3. Complete an ALL RETRACT operation and system is now
out of error mode and ready for normal operations.
4. In the event retraction of the levelers is required
without rectifying the problem, individual levelers can
be retracted by simultaneously pressing the retract
mode switch along with the adjacent two (2) leveler
switches common to the leveler requiring retraction.

Thanks for you help, I did what you said it's seems like the front driver leg won't respond when I press retract or extend and front driver it does nothing, when I press extend or retratct and the other three they work. I still have the blinking red and green on the front driver leg and all legs are up at this time when I do a retract all I do see all four legs blinking red and hear the noise of them retracting fully but can't get rid of this warning on the front driver leg and cannot retract or extend it when I press the buttons I dont hear any noise or anything, can you help me..Thanks Tony

People here can speculate a whole lot, but contacting Atwood directly would probably get you the quickest solution.  I've had pretty good luck with over-the-phone help from techs, after requesting help when various components of my RV have acted up.

Don't leave us hanging!  ;)  What was the problem & fix?  It may help someone else in the future who experiences the same issue.
