I am having an issue with my HappiJac wireless remote. The green light will not go off and if the main board is on all 4 jacks start to raise the camper. The only way to stop this is to pull the batteries or unplug the power from the main board. If the batteries are out of the remote overnight and I put them back in the next morning, the remote will turn on and off ok and the jacks work ok for maybe an hour. then after an hour or so if I go to turn on the remote, same problem. The green light will not go off and all 4 jacks lift the camper until I pull the batteries from the remote or pull the power from the main board. Any ideas??

If your remote allows tethered operation with a cord see if acts the same way - You could use the cord all the time as work around. If you cannot tether or the remote fails the same way on the cord, you need to buy a new remote control.

I tried plugging in my corded remote but think it has to be paired with the main board from the cordless remote. I know the corded remote is good because I used it all winter with the paired board. At any rate the corded remote did not work with the board from the  cordless remote.

Greetings JerBear,

Put new batteries in your hand-held-remote and then Try following the re-programming instruction in this link...

Not sure if re-programming it will work. I took out the batteries yesterday and when I put them in this morning it worked fine. An hour later and green light stays on and the same problem. Frustrating!!! Almost seems like after the batteries are in the remote for an hour or so the remote will not work.

FWIW...

My wireless HappiJac 4160's are only 6 months old and I have had a number of controller problems and a failed drive motor thus far.
 
Over the winter my jacks were getting weird and unreliable, then eventually they would not respond at all. I did the re-programming routine and now they work fine again, but I do NOT trust them. I took a fellows advice and installed an emergency power cut-off switch that I can access from outside the camper.
 
The re-programming routine is absolutely free and resets everything so (since nothing else works) I'd give it a try.  :fing32:

Please keep us posted on your progress because if it happened to 'you' it will most likely happen to one of 'us' too.

Good luck & best regards,

Looks like I will have to use my old wired remote or buy a new wireless remote. Glad I have my old wired remote for backup.
