Lippert 6-point Level Up system

The auto-level feature of my 6-point level up system seems to be acting strangely. Since new I could use auto-level on almost any camp site and the trailer would level.

Twice in the past week at two different campgrounds the auto level feature worked but placed the trailer in a noticeable left (driver side) high position. Both campsites were a little off level. I used manual mode to level the camper and at level the screen read 0 degrees off. I did not record the degrees off at auto level position.

Two other times the auto level feature placed the 5er in a perfectly level position. These sites were somewhat level to start with.

In the past the auto level worked on any campsite. Any ideas why it would change? I do not believe it needs re-calibrated because on level campsites it does its thing and levels the camper.

Can't hurt to set zero level again. Another possibility is that one of the sensors is loose.

Are you connected to shore power while leveling? My 6 pt has stopped auto level with a low voltage error if Iím not plugged in.

If there is air in the system, then there is something bad wrong as these are self bleeding systems.

I would look at the valve that controls both front legs. Might exercise it manually on/off just to see if it makes any difference.

You should test your battery(s). Fully charged, they should be able to operate the level up at least once.

We usually try to have either truck, shore, or generator also plugged in to assist the batteries, but not always. We can usually operate the levelup and slides on batteries alone if they are charged.

But sitting there camping the camper should not go from level to not level.

Makes sense?

Exactly, that's why you should check the valve for the front jacks. Lots of info with pictures available generally, and manuals on the Lippert site.
