For those of you have the "Level Up" hydraulic levelers on your rig ... do not push the auto level button while still hooked to the truck. Depend on attitude of entire hookup ... it could attempt to lift the rear of your truck off the ground.

No that is really a no, no if it is hyd. system being the front has to dip down and come back up on auto, Electric system I don't know. You can always put it in manual mode and control each leg. Or if it is set up like my Hyd. I can drop down the front legs to stabilize the front, which by-passes the system, and then use my electric stab jack in the back. Hope that helps you....

When we stop at a truck stop for the night, we park in the back, drop the legs to take sone of the weight off the truck. Then we open the slides, if there is room, put out our cones. wake up in the morning go inside & have my stake & eggs, ready to hit the road.

gljurczyk ... I guess I didn't say it right. It figured it obvious you would need to manually put the front legs down as that is the process with "level up". I just wanted to warn others not to hit the auto level button after you took a bit of weight off your truck if they wanted to have all 6 legs on the ground. Do it all manually.

I leave my bars connected but use the tongue jack to take a little weight off and perhaps level the TT a bit.
