6 Pt Leveling System "Out of Stroke"??

On the automatic 6 point leveling system, what is the error "Out of Stroke"? Hadn't seen that one before.

When they put in my new shock system (Joy Ryder), we raised the trailer via the leveling system as much as possible, then they used a floor jack to raise it the rest of the way to get the wheels off to do the install.

When they left, I tried to raise/lower manually, but finally decided to hit 'auto level' again and just let it level itself. During the process it said "Error---Out of Stroke" but it then kept going and finally said "Level".

My guess is that it meant I was at or past the limit of the arm..... and yeah, I need more wooden blocks so they aren't over-extended, I know that...but is that what that means?? If not, what does that message mean?

Thanks.

Your are correct. The jacks are extended to their limit. You'll need to shore up underneath them. If I'm not mistaken, I believe they extend to 18 inches.

Your close it's 17" inches, but whats a inch between friends. Really you need to try and find a more level spot or your wheels will come off the ground when you block it.
