Default 2008 Hi-lo 15T won't lift

Hello. On my most recent trips with my 15T, I experienced the following symptoms that seem to have culminated in the trailer being unable to be raised electronically. At night, when I had a light on and simultaneously turned on another electric item (a different light, the water pump), the electricity/lights on my refrigerator shut off and then went back on. On three separate occasions, this was accompanied by a series of three beeps of unknown origin. When I returned home and attempted to raise the trailer, it was extremely sluggish and was barely raising, even when connected to AC current. A short while later, it simply did not raise at all. That is it's current status. Any ideas on the problem and how to solve it? Thanks for your responses, Jerry

I kinda suspect a ground is not making good contact. Probably corrosion. But, it could be anywhere. Not much help I know, but presuming the battery is good, fully charged etc, then the likely suspect is grounding. The three beeps was most likely the carbon monoxide detector. NO idea why the lights flickered. Again I suspect grounding.

Thanks, Tree. I was thinking along the same lines.

sounds like the battery is dead or near. I have those beeps when the battery is dying. found this the hard way. currently am using a new smart charger and disconnecting the battery when not camping. I have not tested my converter / inverter yet b/c of other projects being put in front of our hilo

I'm inclined to agree with others ... its the state of the battery(s).

Check the breakers on the Power panel. One of the breakers connects the 30 Amp shore power cable to the Power panel. There is another breaker that supplys the Power Converter, within the Power panel, that converts 120 v AC to 12 V DC that charges the battery.

If nothing changes there, disconnect the 30 Amp shore cable. Next, connect a separate battery charger to the battery(s) to get them to the required 12V state.
The beeps possibly could have come from the Power panel. It will emit noises when power parameters are exceeded.
