Forester/Sunseeker-Which model Bigfoot leveler is option 1184?

We ordered a 2701DS and added the Automatic Leveling jacks. The floor model we based our order on had the Bigfoot platinum. I believe that is a non automatic. Our option number is 1184. Is it the PC-E4501 or AQ-E4501? Anyone recently get an ordered Forester or Sunseeker with the Bigfoot levelers and which model did yours come with?
Maybe BClemens can answer this question?

My 3170DS came with auto levelers. Panel is just inside the door. Just have to hit the start button and it does its thing.

I'll confirm model number in about an hour when I get home. Feet are flat, 7" sounds about right.

We use a smaller foot to save weight on ours. Should be fully automatic even if it does not have the 12" feet.

Thanks Jaibyrd, that's same as we saw in the floor model. Do you know what the procedure is if they don't retract? I see they have a 24 hour tech support, but sometimes we are boon docking with no cell service.
I told the DW that we will bring in the slides and raise the levelers an hour before we have to break camp to give me time to handle any problems. Don't need an anxious camper hounding me to get out so he can pull into his site.

Read there troubleshooting manual

The batteries need to be fully charged. So will they work in the morning when the batteries are 60% after a night of running the furnace, T and lights? Can't run the engine but how about the generator to give you added boost, or does an alarm go off for that?
It didn't say how to manually retract if needed.

I've only had my MH for a couple months, but I haven't had any issues. Have not tried with a low battery yet.
