Unless I've gone mad (always a chance, folks) the 4 buttons (or sets of buttons) each work a pair of jacks at a time. Front pr, left pr, rear pr, right pr. You're never activating a single jack. Pulled into a level site late one night and didn't want to wake the neighbors with the air bag dump, but ran the rears down until they touched to stabilize the back end.

If you find auto-level is not properly leveling, there's a calibration method as well (basically get the coach level using the tool you choose) then push a combination of buttons to "teach" the new "level."

This right on my 2014--just checked it again--four buttons that run the jacks up or down-- each button will always activate two jack at a time.

Thanks to all

They must of messed up on ours, my equalizer system will let me lower or raise one jack at a time just by pushing the little trangle buttons.

3putt,
My '08 coach was the same as yours. Not sure when it occurred, but they changed the system. My '14 is the same as others have described where one button works a pair of jacks.
It was good to meet you at the rally and to finally be able to put a face with the screen.

I finally looked at my paperwork. It shows that in or near January 2012 they changed the jacks to operating in pairs instead of individually

I would guess they changed it to keep people from bending the frame or braking a jack lifting only one jack.

My 13 390FL lets me do one jack at a time. I recently had to do that when I had a left front tire blow out and the road service guy couldn't get his jack under the coach until I lowered that jack. I also lowered the left rear some in order to minimize twist
