Auto level on 2014 Berkshire

On my previous coaches I could always manual level the coach

This 2014 Berkshire is a new coach and during the PDI the tech said it could not be leveled manually. Does anyone know if there's a way to drop the air & manual level the Berkshire ?

How we can do our 2009 is hit auto to let the air go out then stop (power button) then turn on and then continue to lower each jack by itself. up down buttons.

Thanks no3putt.

It will work just as you say. Turn on- hit auto--turn off let air get out- turn back on --then level manual.

Also can turn on and manual level immediately with it aired up.

My tech was very much uninformed on this.

My other coaches were so bad using the auto. I just never used it.

The Berkshire is really smooth on the auto so I'll probably use it.

Thanks. Russell

Hmmm.... There must have been a major change since 2011. Mine has (besides the auto-level and retract-all buttons), 8 other buttons 1 up 1 down for each of four jacks.

See if you have the eight buttons; they are triangle shaped, like little arrows.

Boowho??

Well the guy was a nice guy but came from another factory to the dealer. Had only been around Forest River coaches for two months.

Well Boohoo. No changes. I had to walk back to the barn. (800 foot). That ok I need to get out of lazy boy.

Mine has 4 buttons plus the on, auto level,and all retract. I thought the four buttons were one way buttons -- only down-- but they all have arrows on them and are two way buttons. Push the top for jacks to go up. Bottom for jacks to go down.

I ll get my manual out sometime. Lol

Thanks. Russell.
