levelers

Just recently took possession of 2017 Forest River FR3. Class A
Levelers just will not level auto or manual. I activated front jacks, both went down and then I retracted them. Same with rear, levels coach front to rear just fine. Activated left side jacks and left front and right rear jacks went down. Retracted them and activated right side jacks and right front and left rear went down. Hardly seems right to me. I am having difficulty believing a possible mistake like reversing hydraulic hoses could have passed quality control so thought I would get some feedback from members before going any further. Having owned excavators and wrenching them I am familiar with hydraulics so am not afraid of switching a few hoses. I downloaded schematics from LCI website and will go out and check if it ever stops raining. Any thoughts?

The jacks work in tandem. Both front/both aft/both front and aft left/both front and aft right. You are correct, you have an issue. I think a reset is done by pushing all 4 leveler buttons at the same time. This may or may not help. Haven't had a chance to search this issue. Someone will chime in with possible fix.

After talking to service manager where I bought motorhome and after he talked to LCI it was an easy fix. Seems it left the factory with the two rear jacks plumbed the wrong way. The fix, switched the wiring harness on the rear two solenoids. Everything fine now. Forest River quality control may leave a little to be desired.
