Sounds like the switch I have. So it's a dual purpose switch? Leveling and dumping completely?

Is there a manual dump valve that I am unaware of?
Yes on my dash to the left is a dump switch that allows me to let all the air out of the bags prior to me leveling the unit

I always let the air out of mine at the end of the day camping or storage...always put it back on to fill the bags and raise the unit. I put it down first prior to leveling...saves me tons of issues.

Switch is dump only. Then you level. I try to always dump before leveling, just forget sometimes. If you dump the air after leveling, you'll want to raise the jacks and level again.

Can someone post a picture of the switch? I don't think we have one.

I've been dumping air via the auto level system which dumps it all prior to the jacks moving.

My jacks don't dump the air - they work with or without dumping it. I can also dump the air if I just want to lower the coach when parking to get the step down a bit (no need to level). Here's a photo with a red circle around the switch.

If it's that lever that I see through the opening in steering wheel, we definitely don't have that on our 2014.

That's the one. Since your unit sounds like it kneels automatically with the levelers, that may be the reason you don't have one. Guess they decided to separate the two functions. I just get senile about half the time and forget to dump the air before I level, then I have to start all over. Once I dump the air, I also make sure to put the switch back in the normal position so I don't forget before I drive away. The engine is off then, while I'm leveling, so the bags stay deflated.

I have a 2015 RB with the Auto/Manual switch and dump the air by moving it down to the Manual position and air up by moving it up to the auto position. Why is it labeled Auto? Does the Auto position do something else or does it simply mean the air pressure to each corner is adjusted automatically while driving?
