I had reason to call HWH once and found them to be helpful.  I find the manufacturer a good source of information for undocumented error conditions.  Here is the number for HWH support perhaps they will be able to answer all your questions.

563-724-3396 or 800-321-3494

Ignition must be "on"  as in the "accessory" position but not with engine running. Parking  brake must be fully set.  I see no reason to have the engine running and I personnally would not want it running for safety reasons when the jacks were being deployed.  I honestly do not think there is anything wrong with your jacks.   Might be a god idea as sugested to spry the entire jack set up to prevent corrosion.   Best of luck.

What are your "safety reasons" for not running the engine?

You might try and put some Oil on the springs and shaft on the lifts, that what happen to me.

Most of the time I leave the engine running when I extent the jacks. Only later if I need to adjust the level again, I will do so without the engine running.
Is the parking brake light on or off when this is happening? I am thinking you might have a loose wire or ground wire or the brake is not setting on. The jacks system requires the brake to be on.

Hmm.....I'll have to go check the manual again. I could have sworn it said "ignition on"

I don't think the engine should be running and I believe the parking brake is supposed to be set.  On ours there is an interlock on the parking brake that keeps the levelers from deploying.

Not sure that this answers your question, but I never have the engine running while extending the jacks.  The system might be trying to alert you not to move while extending the jacks.

I looked in my manual but didn't see anything about this....  When I try to use the levelers, I put the rv in park with the engine running and turn on the system. When I press the arrow for the jack I want to extend, the red light by the power button, which had been steady, blinks and the jacks don't move. I'll try it again and again, and eventually after a few minutes, the jacks will extend.  It used to be that as soon as I wanted to level it would work, this delay is a new thing.  Storing the jacks works as it always did. Any ideas?
