In my experience the auto leveling feature adds unnecessary height.

Bigfoot jacks

I started with the auto level function on my Sunseeker 3050 as well. Found the same thing some others have experienced, front end off the ground & entire unit way high. Like the others, I look over my levels on the floor, run the jacks down manually till they touch, then use the "pair" process. I've found I can level most times with all 4 on the ground and good and solid. Found I prefer this method to the "auto" feature, do it a few times and it becomes natural...

Remember with any motorized RV that the rear wheels are what lock with the parking brake and the transmission park lock, so always keep them solidly on the ground.

Just level the coach, it is not a Forest river, or bigfoot issue, all MH at one time or another "might" have the ft wheels off the ground in attempt to level the coach, If you have a RV fridge you must level the coach, if you have a residential fridge you will feel much more comfortable if level. So just let the system do it's job and level the coach.
Happy Camping

Thanks everyone. I didn't see any reason it would hurt the front wheels. I definitely don't want the back wheels off the ground. I love the levelers but didn't always use them because I was worried about the front coming up. Now I will just use it.

It's not good to have the front wheel off the ground not safe read your booklet that came with the RV about your Big Foot System you need to reset your Jacks on a level parking lot.

Youroo, your the last person I would ask. At my house I couldn't put a drink on the table and take my hand off of it in your TT...
