.....the coach has a propensity to rock when people move throughout...never been able to conquer this!

And you probably won't. Even when leveled, the majority of weight should still be on the springs and tires. Unless you sit the frame solid on a complete perimeter of concrete blocks your gonna get some wiggle. And probably even then. Look at it this way: The coach will let you know when somebody sneaks in!

Well, you know the saying, "If the RV is a rocking, don't come knocking", at least until we are done! LOL

The auto-leveler does "find" a level point, it just may not be the best. When I have used mine, I find the coach is level, but one or more wheels is usually off the ground. I also find that it may go through several "cycles" of operation to find a level point and, by that point, it may have overextended one or more jacks and/or raised the wheels. By using the manual mode, I can better control the leveling and, in most cases, keep the wheels on the ground. I have also found that using wooden blocks under the jacks really helps.

Just a couple points to address. The lippert system auto level calibration does not have to be performed with the unit starting out on level ground. The system does not recognize the strut extensions as part of the calibration process. The one requirement is that the unit be leveled in MANUAL MODE before commencing the calibration process. My written procedure says to level in Manual Mode then turn off and mannually level motorhome. This is a misprint in the procedure. The unit has already been manually leveled via Manual Mode.

I previously had a 2011 Model 327DS and its auto level worked perfect. Traded for a 2012 360 (wife loves the floor plan, I love the king size bed). The auto set on the new coach is wacky. Been using the manual setting since day one! I hit each one until I feel the initial bump. Then use a 3' carpenters level to check front to back and side to side and adjust accordingly. I don't like the front wheels off the ground so I carry a few short 2x8's for the wheels to sit on when needed.
