Power Auto leveling front and rear jacks dilemma

Ok Iíve been on here helping, or trying to help a lot of people, now I need help. Lol. My jacks are supposed to be auto leveling. My rv isnít leveling. Iím afraid even if I put blocks under the low side it will still try and level off those and wonít be level. Any suggestions? Iím on a concrete pad. Click image for larger version

Now bear with me as I am new to this auto leveling part as well.. It looks like normal stab Jack's in the rear not pistons?

Does the jack have enough lift to level the trailer? First time I tried the levels I got an error because the site was to far out of level and one of the Jack's ram out of piston (have pistons in the rear on mine). I added a few Lego blocks to that piston to give it less need to extend 6" and then it was fine.

I'm with Doc, doesn't look like an auto level system to me from the pics. If it really is, have you zero leveled it (set the default level)? Should be in the manufacturers manual which you can find online.

Well there is one piston looking object on this side of the camper (looking at the current picture), maybe itís not auto leveling on the back but the front definitely are. They did stop at one point, maybe I need to block the back a little more. But the front obviously gets used first then the rear. Shouldnít the front level the camper and the back just stabilize the rear portion of the camper? If I put a block under the low side( the side the picture was not taken from) of the front stabilization, you think that would work or would it just be the same as not using it, being stabilizing Iím thinking they would just keep the same auto leveling it is now.

Maybe we are talking about different systems. Do you have a pick of your control panel?

Mine levels front to back using the front Jack's first. Then it deploys the rear and does left to right. The front Jack's will now also go up or down individually to help the back get left to right.

I have the ground control 3.0 from lippert. Yours looks diffrent from the pic. Did not know if your just to out of level.

It is tough to tell. It looks like a normal 5er level system. But who knows anymore.


With mine there is one button to self level, no individual jack controls at the Jack's.

Control panel??? They both have just a button for each. The picture side of the front comes down first hits pressure and the other side comes down until ďlevelĒ then they move in unison until the user decides the camper is level. The rear start and end in unison until the user stops pushing the button. Thereís really not a control panel.

Ah. I'm not that familiar with all the newer level systems, but it appears you have piston type front landing gear that does not have the manual adjust for length like the old ones did. The auto part comes into play as your landing gear comes into contact with the ground and auto adjusts to any unlevelness in the ground (instead of you having to pull a pin and raise/lower the feet).

Are you saying it tries to twist your frame? Or you fully extend the front pistons before you are level front to back?

I think we were confused when you said Auto level as I, for one, automatically think of the 4 or 6 point LevelUp system that levels your entire rig with one button push. From the pics I would say your system is standard, and it won't auto level side to side.
