Problem with Hydro jacks that turned into nightmare

Hi Everyone
I am a first time poster and new to this site.
This is my second year camping and I just bought a 2008 WildCat 30loft. Love the camper except for the fact that my front Hydro Jacks make my camper out of level. My passenger jack will raise 2'' taller than my drivers side jack. I tried everything to make it level. I would start with it all the way up and lower it down and my drivers side jack would be 2 '' shorter. When I would start at the bottom, my passenger side jack would go up 2'' before my drivers side jack would start. My camper would always tip to the drivers side 2''. The back of my camper was perfectly level. I became totally obsessed with trying to level the front and nothing worked. I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else?

Your hydraulic front landing gear should self level.

My driver side goes down until it hits the blocking, then the passenger side. They then both raise at the same time.

I would think there is something wrong, perhaps in a proportioning valve or something. See the dealer, or call Lippert, I think they make the gear.
