Hydraulic level system - I need help

After setting up the Camper today, I noticed that the middle and rear jacks on the entrance side of the camper were not touching the ground.

I went ahead and retracted all the jacks and performed the auto level again. Same results. Any ideas?

Thanks

i'm not familiar with that brand of leveler. does it have a manual option? if so will the jacks respond to manual input? have you contacted the jack manufacturer's tech support?

They do respond in manual mode. I have not contacted Lippert.

Had that same problem after a few trips with our Cardinal when new. Using a flash light, I went in the front compartment above the batteries on drivers side and discovered a wire had come loose from the valve body.

Try manually leveling the trailer using a 2 or 4 foot level on the entry door front to rear then left to right. Then perform a "zero point calibration" per the instructions on page 9.

I am also working on that problem right now. Was first diagnosed as the leveling controller being defective but that didn't solve the problem.
Now diagnosed as a sensor problem. Sensor is located behind the rear wheels and requires removing the bottom of the trailer to get to it. I should know if a few days if that fixed the issue.

I have Lippert 4 point levelers and have found wheels off the ground on occasion. I then relevel using manual mode and the trailer does get level. I'm not sure why this happens, but then I'm also not sure why the first step in the instructions is "Park the RV on level ground." Seems to me if I could always find level ground to park on, I wouldn't need levelers.
