Lippert (LCI) Leveling Not working right

We have a 2013 Montana with Lippert Leveling. Problem is: On leveling pad Auto Level works fine. On pad front jacks button does not respond most of the time and when I finally get it to respond I have to push so hard that it takes all the strength I have to get it to work. It has always been difficult and has gotten worse. To the point now where most of the time it does not work. Is it time to get a replacement. I called Lippert when still under warranty and they said I would just hve to keep pushing it so hard. Well now that does not work either. Needless to say, very frustrating when trying to use the front levelers.

Sounds like your keypad needs replacment. Lippert was one of the best suppliers to work with when this happened to us.

We had to replace ours, the control button contacts wear out. You can buy direct from lippert, bought our replacement off Amazon. Easy plug in installation.
