Exactly? Turbs did you get the level-up system? This sounds impossible to me. Your also sitting on tires?.

Yes I have the auto level. 4 point system.

Just trying to figure how it fell off the jacks.

possibly the tires were on blocks and unit rolled ahead?

Tires weren't locked?

Btw the op has only posted once.

Usually the way it is. Fail to give you the whole story then want to blame the trailer system. Later RJD

Leveling system

Let me tell you mr tubs it fell while I was under the camper trying to retract leveling leg on rear. Yes it was all the way up. I tried despartly to retract legs by zeroing out the calibration to no avail. I was accually on my phone with the dealer when it happened. Trying to retract the motor all of the sudden it fell the pic you seen was real. I'm not blaming anybody but when leveling system all the way out extends out this can happen. To date Forest River claimed no liability Lippert says 1 year on mechanical no frame coverage. I spent 4500.00 for extra insurance coverage not covered. Now I have a 1 1/2 year old camper sitting and can't use. IT CAN HAPPEN SO YOU ALL CAN SIT AROUND And TALK ABOUT. HOW A NOVICE CAMPER EXPERIENCE SOMETHING AWFUL.
