Went to auto-level function today and as far as I can tell, the trailer leveled successfully. However, the control unit is making a beeping sound every 10-15 seconds with no text display. Can't seem to turn the panel off or on. I ended up using the battery kill switch. I'll check in a little bit too see if that lets the panel reset.


Anyone seen this before?

Ours did that. I found the connector for the rear passenger side jack partially unplugged on the controller. I did have a flashing "ERROR" message but no other info.

Unplugged from the controller panel or from the jack itself?

At the controller located in the storage area. There are 4 very distinct areas/circuits on the controller. I was checking the individual fuses when I noticed the connector partially disconnected. I pulled it competely off then reconnected. Afterward I had to go through the reset process and all was well.

Made an assumption that it might be a low battery situation. Went to plug the unit in and needed to move it 4 or 5 feet closer to receptacle. System worked fine. Scratched my head a little, plugged the unit in and went into the auto level cycle. System worked normally with no alarms. One line of the instructions on the decal refers to power.



So, I now assume that the leveling system will not disengage unless shore power has been applied. Seems odd, but that's what seems to be happening.


BTW, even with shore power disconnected and the battery kill switch in the off position, the beeping was still occurring after 6 days. Bizarre,

The six point hydraulic level up and 3.0 electric version do not require shore power to work properly... provided your batteries are charged well, clean terminal connections, etc....

If the voltage on the six point hyd system drops below 11.9 volts DC it will have issues... and the beeping alarm is an indication of either an issue with the voltage level being low or a transient spike during operation. Either will cause the control panel to beep until you cycle power to the control panel

Turning off the batter disconnect doesn’t remove power from the level up system as it is hard wired to the battery
