GC3 does remember settings. You do have the option of adjusting in pairs or individually. The user manuals are available on the LCI website. Also, check out their youtube videos.

It will recall where you unhitched from. All 4 legs can be operated independently but have not yet found a reason to use that feature. Stabilizer jacks are meant to stabilize the camper after you have it level with 2x6s or blocks. The auto-level takes that out of the equation ~~ it levels and stabilizes with the push of 1 button.

When I repacked the bearings I used the rear jacks independently to take a lot of the weight off the axles and then used a floor jack with little effort to finish raising each wheel one at a time.

I just had the LCI factory install my 6 point hydraulic system "after market" got last years rally price. Ended up being close to the same as the 6 point ground control system. Entire system was about $4,000 installed did not void any warranties. I do love only 4 hours from the factory though. I love the system and would not go without it again and I'm in my 30's. My camper is 42' and levels in about a minute.

I dont think you can add a 6 point to a flagstaff 5th wheel "frame" isnt heavy enough.
A member here had it installed on his flagstaff and they had to add sooo much bracing that they said they'd not do it again.
Be warned.

At lease for the Ground Control 3.0 system the manual talks about length being a consideration as well as weight. My Heritage Glen is under weight for a 6 point system but over length for a 4 point system. Best way to determine that is call Lippert. Also I have attached a link their manual that talks about how to determine if a 6 point or 4 point system is right for you. Again after talking to Lippert I ultimately decided on the 6 point hydraulic system myself.

Yes, I was afraid that might be the case. I just hope a 4 point system is available. Thanks!
