Levelers, setting '0'

Hey Guys,

Quick question. When you are setting your '0' point for your leveling system (or in my case my LevelMate), if you have a full wall slide (or in my case 2 slides on the same side), do you find it helpful to have the slide side raised up a little to counteract the natural sag that happens over time? In my older Greyhawk I found that over time the coach would drift a little low on the slide side over time; my assumption being the weight on that side caused the suspension to sit a little more after awhile or my levelers sunk a little more.

Thanks !

That has been my experience. When we had our 2400W full wall slide on the drivers side I found that my "Zero" was +2-3 degrees. If I didn't park so the drivers side was up a couple degrees I'd get a noticeable sag after a couple days.

I plan on starting with a +1 degree setting on our 2500 as the slides aren't as heavy as in the 2400W or in your 2420....

Looks like this time I'm going to set my '0' a little high on that side and see how it goes. Thanks for responding !
