    Yes, I miss the power jack leveling process that I had on my motor home prior to my current TT. I use the same process as you with the 1 1/2" higher on the slide side.
    I have only had my TT out twice due to some health problems that has kept us home. I did have 14 problems with my TT after purchase which have been fixed by the dealer which took about 2 months. Too much back and forth between dealer and factory. Pulls great with my F150. But so far, very happy with my TT.

    Good Morning! I an curious to see if you are still on the forum. I put the Vlite up for sale on 11/16/2016 on our arrival in Yuma, AZ after buying a park model to spend the winter in. The RV sales in Yuma this year were terrible so Monday I picked up the Vlite and had the solar panels from another trailer installed. Yesterday I picked up the Vlite from the solar installer and am preparing to get it ready for the trip back to NE. My wife and I are both excited to set the Vlite up for camping instead of living in full time as we had planned in the beginning. Because my wife is excited to travel in the Vlite instead of living in it full time, my life is a lot better. For the first time in all our travels, my wife is even planning a couple trips. Life is good.

    #3. This has turned out to be a little confusing because the system will only allow 1000 characters. Please start with #1 below. We will be leaving NE for Yuma, AZ on November 2nd. I will be reporting our progress and will be very appreciative of any hints and reports that you can forward. My fix for the front holding tank drain is a 20' x 2 1/2" flex hose used for sump pumps that I have connected to a sewer drain cap. I found that we fill the front holding tank quicker because of dishes, etc. on a daily basis. By having the small hose in the rear bumper I don't have to mess with the main sewer connection till we are ready to leave the park. Safe travels and I have enjoyed reading your posts. Sincerely, ddcarr

    #2. I feel I have now figured it out. I make sure that the V-Lite is 1 1/2" higher on the slide side when I park. I carry two 2" x 8" boards that I use after leveling the V-Light. I then lower the front of the V-Lite with the tongue jack approximately 1" from level. I have the little bubble levels mounted on the side and rear for reference. I then put down the rear stabilizer till it is very firm. I then raise the front of the V-Lite with the tongue jack till it is level once again. I then lower the front stabilizer till it is firm. Then the slides go out easy and the V-lite is level. I found out through a lot of research that the rear stabilizer and the front stabilizer are different. The rear stabilizer is much heavier and geared different than the front stabilizer. You can lift more with the rear than the front. By using the process I have come up with, the possibility of stripping the gears is lessened

    #1. Good Morning! You have the same setup as I and we have exchanged comments in the past. I have now used the 2015 Flagstaff 26 VFKS V-Lite trailer for 6 months. I have towed it from Yuma, AZ to Wallace, NE and have taken it on 4 outings covering several miles in NE. I had nine major problems from poor factory examination after construction that I took care of myself. I have had almost every type of RV that exists and have always took care of my own maintenance. I wanted to have an authorized dealer take care of the problems but found that I could not get into an authorized dealer for 3 months. I fixed everything except for a broken corner on the counter top that I did not discover for the first couple months because it was next to the stove top and out of sight until I happened to be polishing the countertop after a trip. Going from a diesel pusher with all the bells and whistles has been a real shock. The major problem that I have encountered has been the leveling process.
