Leveling: Front Tires Off Ground

When I level in my driveway, my front tires are off the ground. Level is close, but not exact.

What am I doing wrong or what should I do differently.

We are not running the refrigerator, but we do put out the full wall slide.

We have a 36 34f Windsport.

Should we just not level and leave slide in?

Try manual as opposed to auto leveling, if you are using Lippert. In my case, I raise the back so that I'm not raising the front. If you have the residential frig and on shore power, there is no problem. I'm on a significant slope, and run the residential frig year round with slides out as well. Ken

Mine is sitting with the nose about 2 degrees low...
Yet the rear is jacked-up pretty high!
How do you re-zero these systems?

yes!! Manual! After having ours for almost 3 years and having that same issue,I finally used youtube to teach me how to manual level and I will always do it that way from now on!! I was just so nervous to try it but it works the best.

This past weekend we were at a VERY level site, concrete pad very nice and that stupid auto level had my coach jacked over the the side so crazy.. I had no choice but to figure it out!

I am so glad I finally did.

Congratulations! I guess that it's time for me to pick up a new skill...

Bob, do you have Lippert? If so, Lippert has the instructions on Youtube. https://youtu.be/gMStlSAv9D4

yes, just go to youtube! I wish I had years ago. We dont use ours that much unfortunately... so not as many chances to get these skills down but that one is a must.

Texgirl,

Thanks, followed the video, reset zero point. Then, I auto leveled. Front and back jacks came down. Level: Success. Front tires stayed on ground.

Excellent😁😁😁😁

Wonderful! Thats what I need to do.. I just tried it in my culdesac again and did not have the same luck as it was not as level.... so I thought I was all good, but more to learn!
