Engine stops


I own a 2007 four wind magellan. The engine stopped when I was retracting a single jack.  Now the engine will start but cut off immediately.  Help  Thanks

 Some, not all, jacks / motorhomes have an interlock such that the vehicle cannot be moved when a jack is not fully retracted.   The jack may not be fully retracted and that would shut off the engine.  Or the jack maybe fully retracted and the limit switch is defective not allowing the engine to continue running.

Best estimate of the most likely cause based on you description.

I'd go to the jack and exercise the limit switch actuator, perhaps shooting some electrical contact cleaner on it if that is possible.

Be careful under the rig if your not use to this type of work.  There is no high voltage but one can be hurt under a vehicle.  If you don't know what you are doing seek professional help.
