Us also! Using manual, bubble level on counter and test accuracy with the bathroom door. Takes about 30 seconds, with practice. MUCH EASIER than the fifth wheel.

Count me and DW in as users of the bathroom door. When it doesn't swing one way or the other when opened mid-way thats close enough for us.

Like many of you I have found that the auto levelers raise the front wheels off the ground in most cases. I have recalibrated the auto levelers several times and find it will work okay for a few weeks then seem off. After experimenting some I have found that the auto level is just approximate, it can still go higher or lower and still show level. Did this in the manual mode after the control panel showed level.

Not being satisfied with an approximate level we mostly use the manual mode and have purchased an RV Ez-Level from Camping World. Thrown it on the floor and level to it's lights. The funny thing about that is that it will show level just behind the engine console, low in front at the refrigerator area and high or low (depending) over the back axles.

We have finally decided that level is subjective in a motor home and just try and get it level at the refrigerator.

I have a friend with a Foretravel (can we say big money M/H) and he has the same problem. He just spent several hunderd thousand more for his problem than we did.

Bedroom and bathroom doors trump the levels!

What are you folks doing, putting the doors under the levelers?

I would think that might damage them!

I just use 4x4 blocks!

I never see anything posted about EQUALIZER SYSTEMS.
http://equalizersystems.com/motorsports/auto-level.php

It seems to work ok, doesn't lift the front wheels off the ground.

Just arrived in Florida and levelers worked perfect for once, all level and all 4 wheels touching ground. This might be a first.

Smile Levellers taking wheels off ground

Since day 1..2008 Georgetown 374....leveling system has failed to actually level coach...many times raises the front wheels off the ground regardless of a nice flat pad!
I now use the portable level star and place it back in front of the reefer..mid coach...and also rely heavily upon the bathroom door "not closing".....works great 100% of the time!!!!!!
Regardless though, the coach has a propensity to rock when people move throughout...never been able to conquer this!

George
