OP: I would to Lazy Days HQ. Advise them of situation and tell them you are going to bill them for repairs.
I would contact Lippert and let them know what is going on. Ask them for assistance. If they are any way customer oriented they will help.

If you have power gear or other hydraulic jacks.
The Jacks down sensor is a float valve in the Tank.
If for any reason you've lost fluid. INCLUDING normal loss due to heat/cold causing the tank to overflow. The light stays on but normally only with the key on.


Home is where I park it.
2005 Damon Intruder 377 Alas declared a total loss
after a semi "nicked" it. Still have the radios
Kenwood TS-2000, ICOM ID-5100, ID-51A+2, ID-880 REF030C most times

Doug:
Why would the light be on with ignition switch off?


I would guess the service center did something with the wiring and the Jack system pad is HOT all the time. OR, on this older system, there was no draw being wired HOT, unless you had a malfunctioning Jack down light. Doug

Normally, LCI would be the normal to call. BUT, LCI purchased the Kwikee systems years AFTER they were used. So, LCI has NOBODY, that was around when this system was used and they will just read the On line Service manual they have on their website. Doug
