Newbie Question

We set up our 5er and have the lippert auto level system. 6 point leveling. When we leveled up the right side of the camper's wheels are about 2 " off the ground. Will that cause damage to axels to stay like that for a seasonal camper? I releveled using the leveling blocks with the same thing.happening again. Also is Trailer wobble bad for the unit? It is really noticible when the washer is on and when we walk at the back of the 5er. It is a 42' long Sierra PDEK 360. Just do not want to do anything as a newbie to mess the unit up!! Thanks

Sometimes using the auto levers is to aggressive. When this happens level the rig using blocks under tires. Then use manual mode on Jack's

I wouldn't worry about it for a few days.. You can either jack it up further on that side and slide blocks under then let it back down or like sgtlm17 said level it manually. Sometimes even with the auto level if the ground is too much of an incline (I've noticed when the incline is downwards from the front to the rear, meaning the nose is closer to the ground) that the level up system won't even work.

As far as wobble when walking around near the rear of the unit, when our kids get rambunctious back there we feel it too. I was going to grab some leveling jacks to put back at the bumper and see if that fixed the issue but I haven't had the time.
