The rear button controls both the mid and rear jacks. The left/right buttons adjust all three jacks on each side of your coach, unless they are over extended. As Dave said, put some leveling pads under your mid and rear jacks to raise the coach up a little higher. You will want loosen the lug nuts before raising the coach. Finally, when putting the lug nuts back on, remember to torque them to 110 psi and check there torque after driving 50 to 100 miles.

Last year while traveling home from Minnesota, stopped in to a McDs for lunch and someone told me one of my tires was low. Being a member of Good Sam Road Service, thought I would give them a try. I could change it myself but that is what I have the service for. I got the spare out, broke loose the lug nuts and waited. When the service arrived he wanted to jack my fifth wheel up under the axles. He said he does it all the time. I thought, you are not going to bend my axles so I suggested using the level up system. We had to set the controller to manual mode and we only used the right/left buttons to lower the rear and mid legs as I was connected to tow vehicle. We could not get it to raise high enough just using one side because of the degree difference from side-to-side. I think the max is 10 or 15 degrees difference after which it will not allow any more adjustment. We had to lower jack on other side to raise that side as well before we could continue but then the original side legs ,when extended completely would not raise tire off ground so we had to retract that side and put wood under them, then raise it off the ground. It worked great and I didn't have to worry about bent axles. The manual states do not use the level up system to raise the tires off the ground. I'm sure that is stated for safety and legal reason so someone doesn't lift the fifth wheel off the ground, take the wheels off and then climb under the fifth wheel to work on it.

If I am going to lift the axle to change a single tire, of lube a single wheel, I will use the leveler system, if I am having good sam or some other system to change a tire I will let them use their system which usually amounts to them using their jack against the frame next to the axle. This makes them responsible for any problems that may happen.
