Levelers on Berk

Last time I pulled my coach onto the concrete pad, I let it auto level. Did a great job. I even grabbed a long level from the house and checked both front to back and side to side. Wasn't much more than a cats whisker off in either direction.

Then, when I am out side, I noticed the left (driver side) level is about 8 inces or so off the ground. I haven't had a chance to see if I can move it manually yet, but before I do that, I wanted to ask if anyone would find their system to occasionally leave one of them partially down.

Thanks,
Ken

Something is not right Kenny, all the legs and pads should be touching the ground when level.

Just as a test, hit retract all, then hit auto level again. Go outside and watch the jack operation. See if that jack ever comes all the way down.

Agree, all jacks should make contact with ground.

Thanks guys. I should be home by 6 and now that the days are longer, I will go out and try that and if that fails, I'll try working that specific jack manually. I'll post my results tomorrow morning.

Thanks again !!

Ken

My Georgetown would only deploy the jacks necessary to level the coach. On occasion it would level a jack up and I would deploy manually so as to provide stability when walking in the coach. I have not noticed this with the Berkshire.

If it continues Maybe you might want to reset null. See if that solves the problem.

Keep your list and ask questions of Randy and Mitch at Goshen.

Update

I went home and pulled them up and did another auto level and all four came down fine.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Ken

Ken,
Happy to hear that you didn't have any other problems with your levelers.

As a suggestion, if you have an I-Pad it can be used as a level with 0.1 degree accuracy. Just download the Clinometer App. You do not need a level surface to calibrate it. Just lay flat on your MH floor, press the calibrate button, rotate 180 and press the calibrate again and you are done. The display shows a gigantic bubble level with digital readouts for two directions. You need not calibrate each time.

A great App!
