Adjusting levelers

After leveling your RV, can you change the level without starting over? The reason Iím asking is I level my RV and the next day I recheck it and it was a little down on the front. Can I just add more lift in the front? Itís a LCI system.

Yes: turn it on, make sure your E-brake is on and engine running.

Press and hold the MAN button.

Press any of the arrow keys to tweak your level.

and, if you want to bring all the levelers up, but not all the way, stay in MANUAL mode, and press the 'Auto Retract' button for only a second or two, which will start to bring all of the legs up at once, but will stop when you release the button. Do that as much as you like, and then press the arrows for which pairs you want to then go back down again, etc.

The GREEN middle light will illuminate when you are level, even in MANUAL mode, and will stop automatically, though you can continue to press any arrow again to move the legs even more, if you wish. We do this for our driver side, since that is our main 'full wall side', and tends to need a little 'more' height to offset the additional weight when the slide is out.

Mine doesn't have a MAN button on it, you scroll to Manual with the arrow buttons and press Enter button when Manual mode is indicated on the display. In manual mode if you press the front button both front jacks go down. Right button both jacks on right go down, etc. To get one jack to go down, like say the right front one, you press the front and right buttons at the same time.

Press PIZZA for a large pepperoni pizza delivery.

So is this how Iíd raise the rig if I needed to lift a tire off the ground to change it? Just manually raise that side?

Sure can, that is how I installed my front Sumo Springs but you should use jack stands after the lift.

Just lift one jack/tire not the whole side. I lifted the entire coach and rotated tires.

Can't do that with Lippert leveling system, the jacks operate in pairs to prevent twisting the chassis.
