Then I lowered the rear inner jacks and pushed the "auto level" button. When it finished the level cycle it beeped and the display showed level successful. I looked around the trailer and noticed that one of the wheels was off the ground a little. Also the steps were up high and felt like we almost needed a step stool to reach the bottom step.I felt that couldn't be right but I really didn't know. I know it was level because a neighbor helped me do a zero level calibration before we left.
This forced me to read up on the auto level system. I had a DVD that talked about it. There are instructions with the level controls and the manual. All three are different instruction and was confusing for someone that was totally clueless. I decided to follow the manual. I lower the front inner jacks 4" and the rear 3" and place 6x6x15 under the rear jacks and then push the auto level button. The camper levels out. No wheels off the ground and the bottom step is about 4" from the ground. All is good.
Shouldn't matter if you have blocks under jacks or not, it should still seek the same level.
