Problem with Bigfoot Leveling System on RV
by Vern Clevenger
I recently purchased a used 1997 Gulfstream Sun Voyager with a Quadra Bigfoot Leveling System. When I start the engine the left jacklight blinks red all the time. When I try to level the coach nothing happens. Good Sam Extended Service Plan is mechanical breakdown insurance for your RV, 5th Wheel, Trailer, and Tow Vehicle! FREE Quote
What am I doing wrong? I used to have a National Tradewinds and am used to how that system operated. This one has me in the dark, even after reading the Operations Manual.
ANSWER: Hi Vern the flashing red light means that the leveling jack is not fully retracted. The first step you need to take is to look underneath your Motorhome and see it that jack is not all the way up. If it is not then you might want to press and hold the emergency retract button on your panel (if your model is equipped with one) for a few seconds and see if that jack retracts all of the way.
If you see that the jack is in the full up position you may have a bad switch on that leveler that is not being activated to shut off the warning light on your panel and allowing you to extend the levelers.
If all else fails you should visit the Bigfoot Quadra Manufacturing Contact Page
and call the phone number listed for their White Pigeon, Michigan facility and during normal business hours you will be able to talk to one of their techs who can walk you through some more troubleshooting tips.
I hope this helps.
