Auto leveling system (bad solenoid sound)

When I start the auto leveling system, initially it begins correctly by lowering the front jacks and then lifting but soon starts that grinding/slipping/ bad solenoid sound and stops working! Anyone have a similar experience, I would appreciate your suggestions, thanks.

What unit do you have? Montana or High Country?

Level Up

I recently went through something similar with our 17 3661RL. For me it was two things. First and foremost. Make sure your battery/batteries are fully charged and in good working order. A low voltage situation will do this everytime. Second for me. Upon inspection of all connections from the battery to and throughout the leveling system I found that the polarity reversing solenoid had a bad post. The center post would just freespin.Polarity.jpg
