I don't use an additional level. The light in center turns green when level in manual mode.

Gotta have a level somewhere so you know which button to push. Otherwise you're guessing.

My 2012 does not have a green light when level. I use a 3'level to double check. Also I can make small adjustments up or down for each jack without starting all over. From reading posts on here the newer leveling controls are different. Mine are very easy to use manually. And the auto method always raises the coach higher than necessary. Those of you with a newer coach have a different set of controls which may do a better job of leveling in auto mode. But I can level my coach manually in just a few minutes without all the humping and bumping that goes on in auto.

I go by the arrow light indicators that's on the control pad that tell you the direction that you are out of level. Yours don't have those arrow lights?
Arrow lights are adjacent to each button.

I have become so irritated with the LCI panel, I only use the manual mode. The auto function calibration is horrible (my opinion). The manual function with a bubble level works fine. Get use to resetting that flag, it trips a lot,as does the 15a fuse inside the Box inside the battery compartment

You can recalibrate the level - it's in the LCI manual and very, very easy.

I think you totally misread the post. Read it again.

Okay.. I've sparked quite a discussion here..

Next question - Does anyone us blocks (i.e. leveling blocks - Lynx) under the jacks before leveling your Coach. I'm thinking this will minimize the leveling jacks travel along with less wiggle when set up. Or will this cause the Coach to lift higher off the ground?

I've also wonder if it's safe to first level your Coach (Front to Back) by driving on blocks of wood before setting the level jacks. Especially if your on a site with a little slope.
