THOR #7035
Automatic Leveler Jerky

Just bought a new-to-us ACE 27.1 2016 with only 2300 miles on it. We took it to my wife's family reunion last weekend for the shakedown trip and we are pretty tickled with it. We've been in RV trailers for years but this is our first MH. When using the auto-leveler it tends to jerk the coach as it finds its level. is this normal? or do we have a hydraulic control valve problem?

our coach can do the same depending on the slant of the site where you're parked... especially in 'auto' mode...

I've found that I use 'manual' mode exclusively now - I've found how to make the process much smoother all the way around... but it's a learning curve...

I have the same situation. But I am more concerned about how it raises the jacks automatically. It's like the pressure drops all at once and down comes the coach in a hurry. Those skinny aluminum rams don't look strong enough for me.

I normally use the "manual" mode also. Automatic seems to raise the coach more than is necessary. Jim.
