Yet another issue reared its ugly head today on our 2022 Allegro Open Road. Arrived at the in laws and started the Lippert leveling jack system. Rear jacks grounded and when the front ones engaged I heard a load hiss and a puff of smoke emanated from the front end. I jumped out to find hydraulic fluid dripping from underneath the coach. It was getting dark so I will investigate in the morning but it seems a hydraulic line failed. Of course it’s a weekend so I’m likely screwed until Monday. Sigh…..

Yes take a look when you can. Maybe just a fitting popped off.

Curious if all these issues you are having are a result of COVID workforce and supply issues or Thor's recent acquisition of Tiffin - or both. We may never know and doesn't solve any of your problems. I am sorry to see you go through this, hopefully a fitting or hose popped off and it's nothing major. Did your levelers work before without issue?

Yes. Levelers worked fine up to this point. Can’t get any service here in the Columbia, SC area either than Camping World but they are 7-10 out to just look at it. So, we are headed back to Florida to take it to the dealership on Monday morning.

That's the root of the problem.

I will have to say that during the last two weeks when the control unit is on we get random lights lit (mostly right and rear) although the screen says all jacks up. We have also experienced, while stationary and leveled, intermittent sounds from what I assumed were the jacks experiencing some creep like a minor loss of pressure. Sometimes front, sometimes rear. Not sure if this is normal or a precursor to what occurred.

Hate to pile on your bad news. BUT, IF the line is to a jack, LCI jacks are Power EXTEND and Power RETRACT. That means you have to run the Power unit to retract the jacks, which will mean more fluid loss and possibly lack of retraction on the 4 jacks. There should be in the unit a 1800 number Tiffin supplies for emergency road service in the first year. That sticker used to be on the drivers side front overhead. Not sure where Tiffin puts it now. There should also be that contac info in the large Tiffin owners manual packet. Doug

It is not yet 2022, so maybe your MH thinks it doesn't need to work until Jan. 1? [emoticon]

If you need a new hose, farm supply places are sometimes equipped to make a hydraulic hose with the proper length, diameter, and fittings.

I think I would skip the dealer and just park it at the front door in Red Bay Alabama.
