Leveling jacks

We have a 2006 Georgetown
I'm pretty new, but I'm also pretty sure that the four toggle switches for the leveling jacks; (front, rear, left and right, )are supposed to work independently of one another. If not, how can you level the coach? When I try to use the left or right switch, both left and right extend together. That's just wrong...right? The left one also takes twice the time to extend as the right one.
We have no information on the leveling jacks in the motorhome.I'm stumped. Time to contact the dealer?

I've got a 2007. The leveler control pad has two buttons on the top left, the 4 buttons in the center and two on the far left.

I've never used the four in the middle other than for an indication that it's all done.

I believe the procedure is:
1) Set gear to park
2) Emergency brake on
3) Don't move around
4) Turn on the leveling system
5) Hit the "auto" button

When your ready to pull out it's
1) Engine running
2) park brake on
3) Turn on the leveler system
4) push "retract all jacks"

Is that a link to your leveling system manual? Or do you have a different system?

Not familiar with your system but the jacks should be able to be operated independently of each other. I know that's the case with the jacks on my motor home.

On our 2009 GT the manual cleary states that the jacks work as a pair. Using the left or right switches operates BOTH left or right jacks together. Using the front or rear arrows operates both front or rear together. As described you are supposed to level the rig, front to rear first, then side to side. I don't know if there is someone else here with an '06 to send you a manual for them or provide specifications as to the manufacturer of your jacks. Ours are Lippert.

Leveling Jacks

The reason the jacks work in pairs is to prevent from twisting the frame. If you raise just one rear jack for example you;re placing a lot of stress on the frame. If one jack needs to extend more because of un level ground; place a board under it so it doesn't have to extend so far. I never extend the jacks so my rear wheels are off the ground. Too much stress on the frame and your emergency brake won't hold. Hope this helps.

These links are what I've downloaded with the info I questioned.

Here's the site, go to support and Lip Sheets for any additional info.

Good luck with your coach, Charlie
