The leveling device needs to be "re leveled"

If its off level it will off level your ca camper.

I only used the auto system on my Georgetown once. It kept getting higher and higher as it tried to level and finished up almost lifting all four wheels off the ground. We needed to be roped together to make the climb from the ground to the bottom entry step!

I make it standard procedure now to level manually, using as little jack extension as necessary. I set a datum for myself by putting a 12" level in the bottom of the fridge and getting the rig level in both axes. I then attached two stick-on levels (one for each axis) near the driver's seat where I can see them when operating the leveller controls.

The "auto" leveling system has the propensity to lift the front tires off the ground regardless of the site level characteristics! Manual leveling is the best option!
Our 2008 Georgetown 374 has been this way since purchase!
