Blue Ridge 3600 Front Jack Level Issue

Looking for some help concerning front jack leveling. My problem, when I drop my front jacks one side goes down first and then the other. Then I run into my issue, one side start pushing up as the other is only inch and half from hitting the ground putting my front system out of level. I'm trying to identify if it is a setup issue I'm not doing wrong or a issue with my system. I've looked on forums for information about front leveling jacks only, no luck. I traced the wiring to a joint circuit board in the front compartment and found two connects for the right side and left side hydraulic jacks. So, if somebody can point me in the right direction to fix or troubleshoot my system I would greatly appreciate it.

Is this a newer 3600 with hydraulic front landing gear and electric rear stabilizing jacks? Do you have a silver valves with wires attached that look like this?

This is my right landing gear with attached valve. Your valve(s) may be on a silver block with hydraulic lines running to the front jacks. My six-point system lowers the front jack with the least resistance, usually the curb side since it is closest to the pump, then the other moves.

Do you use the jacks to level front-to-back only?

It only has front hydraulic jacks and electrical jack in the back.

The hydraulic front jacks only level front to back? What kind of control do you have?

I don't have a control box, just a switch. The wires go to a shared circuit board.

Since they should both be down before the trailer starts lifting, it sounds like the road side jack is binding. You could call Lippert for additional troubleshooting, but eventually they will recommend taking it to the dealer,

My 3600 does the same. It does not do this on every occasion. It appears to happen when there is a incline from the tires to the front of fifth wheel.
The front jacks come down one at a time. The leveling system bottoms out the front jacks first, then starts leveling process. It will take the front all the way to the ground. I worry about battery box getting broke. Sometimes, If the leveling system can't recognize a starting point. It errors out. I resolve this by leveling the front jacks manually then manually lower the rear jacks. the press "auto level" and the system takes over. Or you can level it manually by watching the LED display. If this is an issue with the system I am not aware of it.

Sorry, my 3600 Blue ridge has the 6 cylinder hydraulic leveling system. But I do have similar issues with the front jacks as you read in my previous statement
