How well do your levellers work?

Just curious to hear how everyone levels their Georgetown.
It seems that my front is always lower than my back by 3" to 4".
And when on a level area it still wants to raise the front off the ground.

Have you experiensed this?

I just may have to ZERO my control panel so it know where level is.
Have you done this?
Let me know how you do it.

Thanks

We have a 2008 Georgetown 374 and the levelers since day one try to raise the front tires off the ground regardless of the pad/ground..levelness!

I do not think a solution exists......

Iggy, Bummers big time.. Ours on the Ceder Creek is probably the same concept, I can raise ours right off the ground using the manual mode, Auto level works like a charm. Are you sure it's not stuck in manual mode?
Hope you get it squared away.

The answer may be one of these but I was just asking to see what others have done if they have this issue.

1. The panel needs to be reset as per manual so it know what level really is.
Their is a procedure to do this which I plan to try in the near future but you must be on a truely level area to start with.

2. I have been told that the Georgetown is more nose down normally and it must always raise the front higher than the rear.


Not a big problem but like to see if this is a common accurance with others?

Iggy -

I've always had the same problem, but mine continues to try to level until it's way too high, in my opinion. Earlier, you suggested I learn how to zero my levelers, which I intend to do. You may want to do the same.

I use "manual" on the leveling system. Using a bubble level sitting on the kitchen counter I lower the rear jacks till the rear just begins to lift then lower the front until the bubble level indicates "level". Then level side to side. The "auto" portion of the leveling system wanted to lift the rear wheels off the ground and that is a no-no!

After 6 months I got fed up with the auto level settings I had, ya know puddles in the shower, crooked omelets an tilted brownies (DW). Anyway I used a 18" level on the counter, using jacks in manual leveled the rig pretty easy. Shut down jack system, restart but don't press man or auto. Use instruction in Lippert book or online guide at LCI1.com. Once complete, restart system and retract jacks. Then use auto and it should bring it right back to good level without excessive extension. Mine has worked since zero close to a dozen times already, big improvement. If you goof with the many key presses you can shut the system down and start over, you're still level. Its worth the time to get it set.

Hey Iggy, as you know I have a 2013 XL and I have the same problem, sometimes the rear wheel comes off the ground but usually the front comes off the ground about 5 to 6 inches. And this is on a fairly level area. Never tried to level manually. Sometimes I drop it back down and redevelop it and it works better.

Hey everybody, I also wondered if your levelers make a cracking noise everyday as you sit there? Seems my front left one does it more than the others. Does this happen to any of you?
