Might change depending on model. When I disconnect I hit level. It levels. When I am ready to leave I hit "hitch height" and it returns to where it was when I disconnected . It is actually crazy how easy it is to me. Last step is retract all to ensure all the feet are up.

Go to the Lippert site (or whomever manufacturer is), find your level system and download the manual. Best way to answer all your questions, and have it readily available in the future.

I use the rocker switch on the front to adjust for hooking and unhooking, once hooked I use auto retract and retract all jacks, then Iíll run the fronts down manually with the front rocker switch, one side will extend and once it makes contact, then the other side will start to extend, when itís about 2Ē off the ground, reverse and retract, the other jack will start to retract, when itís about 2Ē off the ground Iíll stop and perform the tug test, then either run the front jacks up with the front switch or use auto retract again. Once unhooked and TV is clear, I hit auto level and it does its thing, I rarely use the hitch height memory feature when hooking up, usually because I forget itís available.

I did recalibrate on the Auto level last week. When I tried to set it back to hitch height, it went a little crazy. Landing legs extended till I got an error (over extended), and trailer had s serious lean to the left. Reset the error, set height manually. Leveled at CG yesterday and all was good.

Since you have posted this in a Cedar Creek thread I will try to answer you on how my wife and I do this does this .

We first position the trailer where we want it. We will next throw down some 2X8-8" long boards with 2-4X4-8" long wood blocks under the front legs. This is to keep the front legs as short as possible. More stability this way and less movement when walking around in the trailer.

The tail gate is drop and the umbilical cord (power wire to trailer) is unplugged. The safety cable is unhitched also, wheel chocks are placed behind front and rear tires on both sides. The front legs are than extend to take the load off of the hitch. The hitch jaws are opened and the legs are extended a little more. I will than pull the truck out from under the king pin and clearing the nose of the trailer.

We than will place three or four stackable "Lego" type pads under the other four legs and hit auto level. More and more campgrounds are requiring blocks or pads under the legs of trailers now.

To hook-up the reverse is done. We just retract the rear legs first and put away the "Lego" style blocks for backing under the trailer.

I would also fill out your signature as to what style and make of trailer you have as this will help us in the future answering your questions.
