Auto level

Couple questions here, 1: if I turn on the auto level, hit auto level and the coach does it thing, how do I reset what it believes to be level because after its finished I still have to manually level the unit. 2. After a day or each day I have to keep leveling the coach and cannot hit auto level gain u til I retract all then auto level works again? Last is there a "spot" wherein should put a level to see what the coach thinks is level vs the middle of the floor?

I will say I'm able to get it level myself but auto level is never right

We had the same problem with both our Georgetown and Forester -- need to have it re-calibrated.

If it's an LCI (Lippert) system the program procedure for auto level is in your manual. Here's the procedure:


LEVEL ZERO POINT CALIBRATION
Before auto-leveling features are available, the Level Zero point must be set. This is the point to which the system will return when an auto leveling cycle is initiated. To set the zero point (controller module must be fully secured in production intent location), first run a manual leveling sequence to get the vehicle to the desired level point. Then activate the Level Zero point configuration mode.
This mode is enabled by performing the following sequence:
1. Turn panel off. Then turn panel on.
2. Perform the following: -Press the FRONT switch 5 times. -Press the REAR switch 5 times.
3. At this point all LED outputs will blink, and the buzzer will be off.
4. You are now in IDLE mode ready to set Zero Point.
5. Press the RETRACT ALL switch 3 times to set the Zero Point.

You can easily set the null point yourself. There are procedures in the manual or you can google them. I usually reset mine once a year. If you have to keep leveling the coach after a day or two, I'd say you have a hydraulic leak or something is wrong with one of your jacks

One other point. There should be no movement of anyone in the coach while the leveler is in auto level operation.

It is easy to do, no need to visit RV dealer toset null (level) point.

The quote you cited refers to auto levelling your coach when using auto level not part of calibration procedure. If your system is the Lippert hydraulic system the calibration will work. You only turn the system on but do not select man or auto to do the calibration. Follow the procedure as written, don't read something into it that isn't there. If you have strut movement when you hit the leveler buttons 5 times there's something wrong with your system. If your system is not the Lippert hydraulic system this procedure is moot for you.
