This contradicts everything published by Lippert.

I have never plugged in before leveling.

Park the trailer, put down blocks, unlock trailer from hitch, deploy front legs and lift trailer off truck (puts the trailer in a nose high position), drive truck out and then hit auto level.

I unroll and test the power while the trailer is going through it's leveling process. It's always done long before I actually plug in. (Takes about 1 min to level and about 5 min to test electric.)

Had a similar issue. Called lippert support and they sent me a new at no charge. It was also out of warranty.

Okay Thanks, I'll call in the AM and see what they say. It was weird I guess I was in the right mode, I raised the front to unhitch pulled away and just hit auto level and it did it normal thing then it beeped and the center green light came on then it shut off as normal. So the panel is working just a blank screen. Another weird story.... I'll post what happens, they told me they had a problem with the controllers but said I was lucky and got the new one when they installed it. Yea Right....I also unplugged the panel but still nothing on the screen after waiting 10 secs.

Well I called Lippert today, had to get a display is what they told me, he asked what I did, I said I unplugged it waited 10 sec and still nothing then I pulled the fuse and waited then reinstalled still no display, so I had to buy a new display. If you look it up on line it say's the cost is 260.00 When I bought it direct they charged me 207.00. Either way I still would have to pay for shipping. we will see in a couple days if the LED displays comes back. It's like I told them all the buttons work but just don't know what mode it is in. I was lucky because it switches back to right mode when you raise the rams, so it worked to level but now you have to find retract to bring them up. PITA..and expensive..

My controller looks like this. I can control everything without the display. When first powered up any button pushed will extend the ram selected. If you push the retract button in the bottom left corner any button will retract the ram selected. You just can't see for instance degree of level. This will get you set up or ready to leave.

Yep that is the same one I have, I do understand what you are saying and thanks for taking the time to respond, that is what I did, I knew when the green light in the center was lite I knew I could go to auto level. I'm just upset that this controller did not last more then two years.

TTanous - I just had the exact same thing happen. Did you get this resolved? I would love to learn from your experience. Thanks

btw - According to the Lippert documentation, Putting the nose low before pressing Autolevel is Wrong. It explicitly states to raise the nose above level before pressing Autolevel.

Theczar, I have not had any luck resolving. Removed power from the display also tried recalibration. Both produced the same issue. Now they want me to check the sensor behind the rear wheels which I believe will cause me to open the underbelly which I am unwilling to do because I don't think the sensor is loose when the right side works fine. Not impressed with their support at this time. I had not had a chance to troubleshoot more. Let me know what you try so I don't duplicate the effort.

I had to manually lower the street side levelers middle and back. Any ideas on why this happens? Tried several times with the same results. Does the system need a reset? Not an issue for this trip but will be putting it back in the storage building so wanted to see if there is something I should try.

Did you try leveling manually, then re-setting the zero calibration? If the auto level hasn't been properly calibrated to zero, then it will set to a false level until it's recalibrated......learned from having the same symptoms

Good luck!
