Our auto level will level the rig nicely, however the front tire are usually off the ground 4 to 6 inches, manual level in the same site and the tires all all on the ground. I prefer to have the wheels on the ground.

I believe auto level uses full extension (all 4 jacks together cannot exceed a certain extension). That is why on auto level it will go up and down to get level. It is also why the front wheels are usually off the ground. Once the combined total extension has been reached, to get one jack to go up another must go down.

Mine have never been more than an inch off the ground.

My Mirada also lifts the tires off the pavement. I let it do its thing and if the wheels are off the ground, I will manually lower it watching my bubble levels. Always believed that an RV jacked up high is not as stable as an RV level, jacks touching the ground on all 4 tires. This configuration seems most stable and minimizes motion as people move around the RV.
