Leveling jacks

Hi All
The wife and I are still kicking tires but the FR3 is becoming more of a possibility than it was last week.
One question I have is about the leveling jacks. Are they auto-self leveling (push 1 button) or do you need to push each button til level? I don't recall seeing a leveling bubble anywhere.

Appreciate the insight.

It is automatic. But the engine has to be running in "Park", parking brake on, or it will pop the red blade circuit beaker above the batteries next to the steps. You have to stay still till it is done. If it goes into the fail safe mode ie all the lights flashing push all 4 arrows at once and hold after resetting breaker.

I put mine in park with brake on the level. I haven't had an issue. I'd be afraid to drop the jacks while the unit running and in neutral.

Sorry, Park is correct position the the gear lever thou it is technically not in gear so is a neutral with a parking sprang locked that in reality couldn't stop much. But yes you are correct. I went back and edited the post thanks.

If the batteries are fully charged I have had no issue leveling with the engine off. I'm not sure if the jacks draw off the chassis or house battery?
