Since it seems as though most people aren't using the old "back up on boards" to get the camper level with this does it have the capabilites to lift the tires totally off the ground it it needs to?
We've been in a few camping spots that are pretty out of level where we needed to back one side of the camper up onto some fairly tall blocks and I would only imagine that if we didn't do that and leveled with this system it would require it to lift to the point where the tires weren't in contact anymore.
If you are referring to the Lippert Auto-Level System, FR and Lippert specifically advise that you must find a site that is generally level. I have the system and have been on some CE/state park sites that don't fit that definition. The issue is the legs overall do not extend down but "X" inches thus if one side is bad out of level it simply doesn't have enough leg length to correct. The simple way to resolve that is simply place some blocking under the side that has the slant issue for the legs/jacks to come down on giving it the ability to self level.
I would not trade my Lippert Level Up for the ole manual pull/back upon blocks for sure. Definatley worth the headache/issue.
