Mine does the same thing, just like yours, not always. I was also wondering if I could just hit the auto level button to pressure the system back up. I was always worried if I did that it would retract then re level so I never tried it.

That's what I was worried about. I guess I will try it.

On ours, pressing the level button after the system has completed and shows the jacks extended, accomplishes nothing. The system seems to prevent you from attempting to do this. The only way i can relevel is to press the retract button then repress the level button. It's a PITA. The power gear in my old coach would simply level from its current position and was much easier to manage.

I wonder if retracting each or just a couple of the jacks manually or individually just a inch or two, then hitting the auto level button would do any good?

I'll do some experimenting today, I'm back home from our trip and will try a few different methods and will report back on what happens.

Think its computer system wants to start with retracted jack, extend each till contact, then extend in pares till level. No way to part retract select jacks as the system would be in immediate frame twist.

I'm not willing to do that with the slides out. I'm not sure if the system will allow it but if I need to re level I'll pull the slides in first.

OK I did some experimenting today. Yesterday was raining cats and dogs.

I have a pretty level driveway so I wasn't too concerned about having the slides in or out. But I did start with the slides in.
First I hit the auto-level, let the coach do it's thing, and of course no knocking or noises. I pushed the buttons for individual jacks and got the coach out of level but still sitting on the jacks. I tried hitting the auto-level button, the only thing that happened was a beep and the system did NOT try to correct being out of level. I had to push retract all, then auto-level to get it to work.

I did the same sequence with the slides out and got the same results. I did learn that the leveling system can operate with the slides out. It handled it without any issues. I don't think I would attempt it on a pad that is not very level though.

Cajun,
Thanks for running that test for us. Very good information that we can all use.

How much bounce did you get from the slides? Is there a risk to over stressing the slides? Thanks for checking.
