Just to finish up. I wish I could flip the basement door all the way up against the outside wall as I was saying that bedroom slide won't allow me to do that, but I'll get it figured out. Thanks for the pic, looks like about the same location as mine. I need to install a light near the controller as well for those after dark arrivals.

I think Lowes has some waterproof doors and frames. I know that is where Sid pick up one for his landing gear switch and enclosed it. I remember him showing it to me at the rally and I thought he said Lowes...Let me know if you find one...Thanks

Do you know what happen yet? They told me that they changed the boards, I don't know if they just added an update or what they didn't say and never asked, but he said you got the new board (Controller). Did yours come with a by-pass switch to just let both rams come down in the front landing gear? It replaced my electrical landing gear rocker switch? If I use that it brings down both front legs together, not 1 at a time like the control board will.

On the 2013 Cedar Creek it's under the bedroom slide in a side opening door. Since you normally use it with the slide in, it's in the ideal place. I guess I could use the remote...

We LOVE the LCI level up on our Crusader. It's not a deal breaker feature for me on any future rigs, but it is something that might swing my decision if it was close.

After zero'ing out our system and re-calibrating it I've had no issues with it. That being said I've found it's always best to try and get close to level before engaging it.

I love mine.
There are some tricks to use it correctly and it works very well. Mine was included with the Touring Edition package.

Did your control panel come with the digital screen with read outs or just lights? What tricks did you learn?

The main trick is not to deploy your landing gear all the way to the ground. Have them hit the ground then pick them up two or three holes.

This allows everything to be able to move up and down. If you start with fully retracted landing gears, pull the pin and let them hit the ground, it can not take the front or back lower, just higher. Picking the whole camper off the ground can happen this way.

The other trick is to manually put your camper where you want so the water from air conditioners drains where you want (typically the drivers side) tehn reset the zero level. Now every time you hit auto level the air conditioner should drain to the back.

Which side is that? Curb side or Driver side?
