Here are the instructions for resetting (recalibrating) the auto level on the 2014 models. (I removed a few lines out of the instructions that were really confusing and just left the basics) Earlier models may be different, but I'm told these instructions are valid for the last couple of model years.

Make sure you're parked on a level spot when you do this.

LEVEL ZERO POINT CALIBRATION
1. Press the "ON/OFF" button to turn the system off. Then press the "ON/OFF" button to turn the system on.
2. Perform the following:
-Press the "FRONT" switch 5 times.
-Press the "REAR" switch 5 times.
3. All LED outputs will blink.
4. You are now ready to set Zero Point.
5. With a level on a countertop, use the right/left/front/rear buttons to manually level the coach.
6. When the coach is completely level manually press the "RETRACT ALL" switch 3 times to set the zero point.

That should do it. If you press the wrong buttons simply turn the system off and then back on and repeat the procedure.

Question - what do you guys use for padding under the jacks?
wood, plastic or other?

I carry like 12x12 squares of old kitchen cupboard doors, 12 inch or so long pieces of 2x8's, and a few pieces of 2x12's with four 8x8's blocks. Just before the 4th of July I told my DW that I need to thin out the jacks wood. Well we dry camped at a jamboree thru the 4th weekend and used every piece of boarding I had to level off the rig without having wheels off the ground.

Oh yeah, all the wood I carry is scrap lumber cuts you will find at any new home construction site, many builders throw the scrap cuts out front during the building process.

I use some 12"x12" plastic pads I bought about 12 years ago for a travel trailer. Still using them.

Read about this on Lippert manual late late last night. About to go out and try this and will report back to see if it works.

Thanks for the info!

Also, as for padding the jacks, is that necessary/better for the jacks to have wood underneath?

Happy to report that after resetting the Zero Point on the leveling system, the Auto Leveling system works!!! Yay, no more tripping the breaker and it leveled all by itself!!

Followed the steps with this pictorial:

Now, can anyone tell me if the house batteries in the 2014 Georgetown are maintenance free or do we need to add distilled water? They look sealed but perhaps I'm missing where I can lift off the lids?

Congrats! We too just took the leap to a Georgetown after many, many years in a TT and FW. A lot to get used to....especially the width of it on the road. Takes some getting used to...any tips from the veterans on keeping in the center of the road especially on the back roads. Happy camping and safe travels!

I also am still adjusting to driving a coach rather then a pickup and 5th wheel.
I find if I look in the convex mirrors then I can see the edge of the road and the centre line. Then pick a spot on the dash that lines up with the centre line when you are in the centre of the lane. In the coach we sit closer to the centre line and I catch myself driving to close to the side of the road after I haven't been driving the coach for sometime.
