At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Not sure if you've got the manual for the system, but just in case here it is. If you haven't been shown how to recalibrate the system to what YOU say is level, it's on page 3 under "Zero Setting The Control". Very simple. We leveled ours using multiple levels in key places inside, then set some bubbles front and side and set the system. We did use the auto feature for a while, but after having to recalibrate, or zero the system several times, we just went to using it in manual mode all the time.

stormy, have you put any bubble levels on the unit? Just curious where you'd have a reference to go by at the controls. Some have had good luck with theirs staying calibrated. Mine, on auto, it'd say "Oh yeah, watch this crap" every now and then.

I use the regular bubble level I got at home depot, it has 3 different bubbles from which to measure @ different angles. and they show the unit is stable. all came down when we started hearing those popping nosies and like little bumps in the unit, which made us wonder if the unit is self adjusting or are we moving due ground shifting *our area is little sandy also* .. and our unit is not self adjusting but just moving with the ground.
every time i check the level mon. it shows good, and the bubble is also about even.

IMO the popping problem is with the front jacks. It's also worse the further out they have had to be extended due to any sloping of the site. The sure cure is to slam some simple jack stands underneath the frame and unload the front jacks. You've already learned that the Lippert system makes no other adjustments once it thinks the trailer is level. It actually turns itself off. I have it but don't always use it because I don't like my wheels hanging up in the air on awkward sites.

Two screw type trailer Jack stands available from Wally Mart took out almost all of the bounce on my 36CKTS. I put them under the corners of the trailer hitch. I used a king pin stab as well but not as a stabilizing device. More like an anti-theft for the bikes.
