Having a motorhome and recreational vehicle with you can be amazing if you enjoy going out on long camping trips. Although, there are also many problems people get with the driving experience on these.
One of the main complaints that you will hear about is the instability of the vehicle. This can be quite annoying and even while you are parked. The vehicle will shake while you are moving inside it. This is extremely frustrating because the vehicles are designed so that you can move around in them easily.
Luckily, companies like Lippert have come up with products that fix this problem. The auto-leveling system allows you to balance your vehicle easily. The equipment is entirely automated and ensures that your vehicle is kept stable while you have it parked.
Although, while these devices are amazing, there are also some problems that you can get with them. One common issue that people get is that the Lippert Auto Level is blinking red. If you are getting the same problem then here are some troubleshooting steps to help you out.
What to Do When Your Lippert Auto Level is Blinking Red
1. Retract Equipment
One of the best things about the Lippert Auto Level device is that it comes with a control panel. This can be used to input commands and control the system. Additionally, another great thing is the LED lights present on the system. These will blink in different colors indicating how the equipment is working.
In case of any problems, you will either notice that there is a red stable light on your panel, alternatively, this can be blinking. The blinking refers to there being a problem with the device including jams or configuration errors. Whatever the case might be, you should start by retracting the device completely. This can be done by holding the ‘Retract All’ button and it should also fix your problem.
2. Manual Retract
Sometimes when trying to retract the device, the button on your control panel might not work. This can be quite annoying but your only option now will be to retract the equipment manually. This takes a lot of time and effort if you do not have the proper equipment to retract these leveling jacks. Although, one option is that you try using an electrical drill. Without this, it will be quite hard to retract the system, but once you are done, the problem should be gone.
3. Check Motor
Finally, if you are still getting the same problem then your only option will be to check the motor in your auto level system. Make sure that this is not covered in dust as sometimes the debris stuck in your gears can prevent them from moving. Although, once you have removed all this, the equipment should start working again without any issues. In case it does not, the motor in your auto level system might be broken. You will have to contact Lippert for this and ask their support team for help. They should be able to both identify the issue and get it fixed for you.
