Lippert 6 point auto leveling system

I have a Lippert 6 point auto leveling system on my 2013 Sanibel 3500 and have noticed the front legs dropping 1-2" after traveling a while. I bring them back up and will at times still have a slight drop (approx 1") after traveling some more. I have had the unit going on three years and this issue just started this cold season. Any suggestions on what I need to be looking at?? Would the cold cause this slight movement?

BBBlue, What is the outside temp when you noticed this problem, they have a warning about the system when operated below 30 degrees. I'll have to check and get back to you. That might be a cause. Is it only the front 2 or all or which of the 6 is doing it?

It is probably low to mid 30's and only the front two have done this.

If it is in the low 30's then you will need to retract in the manual mode not AUTO mode. I would try that. These systems do not like the cold. You might also like to take a Qt. of hydraulic fluid out and add some Caterpillar fork oil. I think it's called spected or septic fork oil. Very good for cold weather use.
