Also a more complete owners manual would help till the dealers are more trained. My trailer didn't even include one, had to pull it up on the Internet.
Thanks for the feedback. That eases our minds and helps us with it when take delivery next Friday. The dealer said they make sure everything is in working order before we pick it up. I feel confident we won't take it until all is working properly and to our satisfaction.

It is a new six point hydraulic leveling system that automatically levels the unit in under a min. Once down the trailer has no wobble, it is just like it is sitting on a slab.

Any hints/tips on using the system? What do you use to check level? Or does it automatically know level? I'm envisioning it as hydraulic lifts that you have to adjust up/down until you find level. But does the system find level for you?

It is all computer controlled. All you do after un hitching is push a button and watch. The oil level is checked with jacks up. See clear plastic reservoir. Should be almost full. Check out the yutube video. Search for wildcat level up.

Thanks for the answers everyone ! It sounds like quite a system. Expensive motor coaches have this system. The warning of looking out for the legs as they come down is a good one. A fellow had a starting problem with his coach. A fellow camper went under to give the starter a wack for him. While under the coach the owner for some reason decided he would help my raising the coach with the auto leveller. That leg came down fast and hit the ground right beside the guys head.

I can see someone trying to set a pad under a leg while the operator pushes the level button.

Just wait until someone's child gets killed by one of these things.
Sometimes "convenience" isn't worth the price.

My first experience with the level up was questionable. I followed the directions as stated to raise the 5er back to orignal position by pushing left/right arrows simutanious and keep getting the error message. After talking with Lippert and doing a couple tests we found that if the original position when coming off of the truck was higher than level, the feature works. If when coming off the truck you are at a spot lower than level it will give you the error message. Also I had been under the thought that you shouldn't back under the trailer with all the rear stablizers down. Not true by Lippert. If you get the fail error code simply do the clear entry and raise your front to the point to get back on the trailer then do the auto retract and all the jacks come up. Once I figured out the a,b,c (s) it works great. Their instructions could be more clear no doubt. The dealer surely didn't have a clue.
