Automatic Levelers

I just bought a new 2018 classic super lite with automatic levelers, I just tried if for the first time and it said "error out of stroke" and I feel like if I was at a campsite, it's the same level as my driveway. Any suggestions?

Usually means one or more of your leveler cylinders has extended to it's maximum. Try putting some kind of block under the jack to shorten the stroke.

Could also mean that when you pressed auto level the front of the trailer was below level. It must be above level when you press auto level.

So the tongue has to be higher or lower then the hitch?

Congrats on the new rig. I didn't easily find the documentation for your exact level system, but on mine, the nose only has to be above level when initiating auto leveling for the hitch recognition feature to work.

I have used Auto level successfully on mine with the nose low and high.

Find the doc for your exact system to get all the details.

Enjoy! Level up systems sure make RV life more enjoyable!

So we never asked if when you tried to autolevel if you were on an unlevel spot which caused some of your jacks to fully extend?

If you were on fairly level ground, then you might have a sensor problem, or your zero point calibration might need to be reset.

I tried leveling it in my storage spot which is semi unlevel also tried leveling it in a parking lot with gravel and it was also semi unlevel so maybe on a campsite it will be fairly level work

How did your jacks act? Did any of them extend fully? Your rig has to be really out of level for a jack to extend to it's max. We have auto leveled on some badly unlevel spots w/o errors.

If you get that error when auto leveling on fairly level ground, then I would think that something is wrong with a sensor or jack placement. Did auto ever work?

Can you manually level ok?

Sorry for all the questions, just interested in what is going on and what the fix is
