I left lights on in coach and wasn't hooked up, lost charge to batteries for coach. Had tipouts extended. Hooked power up to coach from outside and moved tipouts in to leave site. Had engine going with brake on and pressed panel to drop jacks, only went up half way and stopped and LCI panel lite up like xmas tree. Before calling in to have serviced any ideas what i might do to correct.
As far as I know, jacks need the batteries to have, at least, a reasonable charge to operate. You say you let the batteries completely discharge. Might take awhile for them to charge back up.
Mine are hydraulic like yours, and, as far as I know, once you push "retract", the springs do it all.
Your coach is new (2011) so you should have all kinds of owner manuals...one of which SHOULD be from the jack manufacturer. Find it...read it...perhaps the answer is there. ((Mine are from Power Gear, they have a website with "troubleshooting"...check that out)) You still have a warranty? Then take it back to the dealer. New coaches can have alot of "teething" problems. Use whatever warranty you have well.
Whatever you do....g'luck.
The control power for the jacks usually comes from the chassis battery and the operation power comes from the coach batteries.
Charge the coach batteries. It takes a while if they have been completely discharged.

Some RV batteries live a long and useful life, some are murdered. Get a Digital Multimeter and Learn How to Use It
the 12v control valves need to open for the springs to retract the jacks/levelers
sounds like voltage dropped to low for the control board to function correctly
shut off everything
disconnect engine battery
reconnect engine battery
start engine wait 10 minutes then try retracting the jacks
if your slides and jacks all use the same hyd system
its a good idea to do only 1 thing at a time
pull each slide in “one at a time"
then retract the jacks
do this with the engine on, or at least with the generator running so that
the batteries are being supplied with power
if your house batteries were near dead, very likely they were taking so much charge from the alternator that it could Not supply the the pump with enough power
the voltage drop caused an overload and shut down
just so you know
they don't make 'tip outs any more even on trailers
you have slide outs
drop jacks would mean Extend them and level coach
so I think you meant 'Retract' them
it can get real confusing , when someone says the opposite of what we think they are trying to say
