Angry Voltage Lippert hydraulic leveling

I've had my Voltage 3800 since May 2014. We're on the way home from Sedona, AZ and the center tire on the Passenger side shreds itself. An exit right handy so got off the highway and into a gravel parking area.

In the past I have used the hydraulic jacks in Manual mode to raise the side, where the flat tire is, until the tires are off the ground. Then change the tire.

This time I kept getting a display saying the system was 1.6 degrees out of level (something like that) and the jacks would not even begin to extend. Not at all!!

Tried lowering just the Driver side jacks...same error, same no jack extending.

Finally just pressed "Rear" and the four rear jacks extended until we could get the shredded tire off and the spare tire on.

Anyone else experienced this? My first time and don't like it!!!

Thanks,

Pirate

I've had that nag but only when the jacks had to extend beyond their happy spot. I added a block so they didn't have to travel as far and that solved the problem.
Mine are electric though. Could be a limit switch is stuck or maladjusted.

Yep... began seeing that error msg a few months before the relay in the front compartment stopped playing. Have never seen it again since replacing it.

So a relay up by where the pump and reservoir are located?

I'll have to go look for that!

Thanks,

Pirate
