Rear jacks

Is there anyway to raise the rear jacks without it bringing up the middle set of jacks? I would like to put jack stands under the rear, but when I go to manual and raise the rear, the middle jacks also come up, and then there is no room to put the stands under the rear.

No.
What is it you are trying to do exactly?

Auto level puts the bottom of the RV way too close to the ground in front. I manually raised the front, but that causes the rear jacks to extend further than I would like to keep everything level. I have jack stands I use on our concrete pad in Florida, and I would like to put them under the rear jacks so they don't extend so far.

If I raise the rear jacks, the middle ones go up also, and then the rear is too low to put the jacks stands under the jacks.

I guess it can't be done, so I'll have to live with the extended rear jacks until the next move.

Thanks for the reply.

Have you done a zero point calibration so that auto level actually levels your RV? Or are you saying your current pad is unlevel front to back causing the front to be lower than usual when it levels?
We use Lynx blocks to put under our jacks to assist in very unlevel sites and to limit jack extension. Adjustable in 1" increments. We have 3 sets of 10 and frequently use all of them. https://www.amazon.com/Tri-Lynx-0001...46686536&psc=1

It's the level of the current pad (gravel) that we're on.
I love the jack stands I already have and use where we spend most of our time in Florida, so I'll just live with the extended rear jacks.
Thank you for responding.

Understand completely. Thanks for the clarification.
The 6 point hydraulic auto level is my favorite option but it definitely has a learning curve when used in very unlevel sites. Glad you found a system that works for you with the jackstands.
