Automatic Levels Need to be recalibrated

I have a 2016 Thor Ace 29.2. The automatic leveler lean the coach a little to the drivers side. Therefore any water that gets on the counter by the kitchen sink collects by the wall. I want the coach to lean a little to the passages side so I can see the water and wipe it up. Same for the bathroom sink.
So how can I readjust the leveling system get the coach to lean to the passages side?

Do you have the manual for your installed system, as it might be a little different?

Our Lippert system has a re-level set up in the manual. I used it a few years ago. I think you relevel the coach manually to the point you want it to be, then push and hold three buttons. The system blinks three times and you let go and the new level set point takes effect. We rarely use the auto level anymore. We found it usually puts the coach too high and we prefer to be slightly high on the left. Instead I bought two level bubbles and installed by the drivers seat. We manually level the coach using the bubbles. Works well and is very easy.

I recalibrated mine twice and it will will end up about 3 inches higher than manual leveling

Once you learn to manual level it is very fast

I like the bed side a bit higher so that is easy as well

The 1/2 bath door makes the perfect side to side level and the front to back i use the built in indicator

Thanks. You reminded me the having the coach leaning a little to the passenger side also leans the shower floor towards the drain.

Leaning toward the passages side will also help in draining the shower pan too.

When you recalibrate you determine your "level"

I took a 360į laser level and and manually leveled it. Then adjusted the level by measuring the distance from the frame to the laser. Manually made them all equal and then recalibrated the leveling system.

I have a Thor Four Winds 29G. When I bought it, the auto leveler was not functioning, but it was manually. The dealer said they had to get a module and they would send it to me. I installed the module and recalibrated per the Thor manual. That being said, like one other response, I use a torpedo level on the counter and level manually, front to back first and then side-to-side. When I auto level, it always seems to make a few more adjustments and end up higher....in some cases taking one of the wheels off the ground. I could go through recalibration (not hard) but prefer to do it manually.

We use that for backup to check if the auto level is working right. Works great!

If you have a gas/electric refrigerator and have a smart phone, get and use the level function app. Make sure it is one with a 360 bubble function and set the phone in the bottom of the freezer. Then level. Your fridge is level, everything else is level enough.

I have the 2016 29.3. Calibration is in the manual. Level it as desired and set it.
