Leveling system calibration

My Berk 390-RB is parked on a concrete pad that is fairly level. Thinking I needed the jacks for stability I deployed them and discovered we were more un-leveled than without them. Several try's produced same results. Jacks are retracted now and coach very close to level - is there any reason to use the jacks if not needed to level?
I guess they need calibration and will see if Freightliner will do it while we are in for service.

My jacks have a routine to set the NULL. Read your manual and it should address the procedure. It is simple and should be done regularly.

GOOD LUCK

X2, I reset my null about twice a year. Very easy to do and the instructions can be found online or in your manual.

Even after resetting the null I find that in some spots, manually leveling the coach can be more desirable and is something that should be learned. IMHO.

I agree. Last trip I started manually leveling almost every time.
I found I could do it and stay closer to the ground.

Thanks to all for the info. Just a double-check: is it okay to remain without the jacks deployed? Only difference is slight movement when walking in the coach. Obviously the jacks provide more stability. Only other reason that comes to mind is removing some weight from the tires since we will be stationary for next three months.
