Anyone that owns the Lippert hyd level up system and hasn't checked that OEM breaker will have nothing but issues sooner or later if it is 50 amp..
The hyd pump motor will draw north of 70 amps OR more on cold weather days and will cause auto level errors as well as start stop start issues with hyd slide outs.
If the RV has the IN Command system then every time there is a surge on the dc bus they will have issues with it as well...
I had read about the breaker and questioned my dealer about it during PDI and so both of us looked at it and it was 80 amp... and yes the wire from the breaker goes to the pump motor..
So far in the 52 nights we've spent in the trailer since July 22, 2020 we have had no popping and no unexplained issues with the Level Up system. Admittedly it is a little difficult to find sub zero weather to test the system in Texas but we did survive several weekends of 20 to 30 degree nights..
I specifically did not want the abortion that is the In Command system and that is WHY I bought an Avalanche.
The only issue I've had with the D/C side of my trailer is the auto reset on the awnings. Neither awning will retract fully without the breaker resetting at least once. Both will extend with no problem, but just will not retract.
I've loosened every clamp more than once with no improvement.. Since I rarely deploy either awning it isn't a big deal and one day I'll get around to doing something about it.
