    I have a 2019 Flair 29m and my control panel for the hydraulic leveling jacks won't come on. On a recent trip, one day it wouldn't come on when I tried it, but then came on about a hour later. A day later, we moved the RV to another space and then the control panel would not come on at all and hasn't since. Any ideas how to fix this it without taking it in for repair.

    Also, I can't find any info in our owners manual on locations of fuses for this, hydraulic reservoirs, how to get to slide out motors, and such. Any help with this would also help. The owners manual is very generic.

    The fuses are located by the hydralic pump. Cylinoides could be loose.

    Thanks for the reply Jane. Any idea where the pump and solenoids are? I would like to find a manual that actually shows where everything is on my motor home.

    Here’s a little more info. I found the hydraulic pump and fuse, actually wasn’t hard to find. The fuse is still good so that isn’t the problem. Does anyone have any other suggestions? I made an warranty appointment, but hey can’t get it in until mid July and then they will have it for weeks or months.

    We had an Itasca Latitude with a similar issue.  Even though it’s a Winnebago product, the power gear / kwickie control panel was similar.   We removed the control panel (4 screws)  behind the panel were plastic plugs, unplug the power wires from the motherboard.  Depending on your model, there will either be a second Molex jack the power plug fits into to reset the unit, or you just up plug and replug the wire clips into place.

    Thank you Pete, you are a rock star. I unplugged the wires from the control panel and plugged it back in and it did the trick. Thanks for your help.

    Ok everyone, I think I'm going to loose my stuff. I did what Pete said to do about unplugging the wire harness from the control panel and it worked, or so I thought. it went on a few times the day I did this so I put the jacks down. Now today when I went out to retract the jacks, the control panel won't turn on again. I tried resetting the panel again as before, and nothing. Any ideas on what I should try now. This is very frustrating especially since we have another trip planned in a few days.

    I don't know about any of the electrical aspects of the levelers. But I do know on my 2014 Bounder

    if I release the parking brake my levelers automatically retract. I don't recommend doing it  repeatedly, but if they have to come up they have to come up. Good Luck

    Thank you Don, I actually tried that in hopes it would work, but it didn’t. I ordered a new control pad from Amazon hoping it is the problem. I tested the four wires going to the pad and found the black wire has power going to it, so I’m guessing the control pad went bad. I’m crossing my fingers.

    FYI to anyone reading this, I checked my manual, checked online, and watched videos on how to manually retract my jacks. None of them apply to my unit, which really doesn’t look like anything they showed, not to mention, the only way to get to my pump is by climbing underneath my coach. The access door to it on the side is only 6”x6”, which is way to small to do anything. Also, the motor is facing toward the chassis and doesn’t have an access port on it to spin spin it manually to retract the jacks. I sent an inquiry to Fleetwood for their help, but not expecting much.

    Ugh Gary, so sorry you are still having issues.  I’ve been there.  That last coach I mentioned was named Jackie (need I say more )

    The hydraulic pump that holds the levelers down is supposed to have a bleed valve to allow them to retract.  No cranking as that is for malfunctioning slide outs, not levelers.  Hopefully your new control board will fix the issues once and for all.  

    Fingers crossed.
