Redwood leveling mystery

Ok I know I am about 7 or so days out till this beauty gets sent back to Indiana but I can't let enough alone. Here is a question that I thought couldn't happen on a hydraulic leveling system. If you measure all legs extended and of course of you can tell it's not level but the brain of the trailer says it is. And later re level it and measure all three legs and you notice which ones are your problem children For me it is four out if six So I wait 24 hours and measure again and notice the same 4 are off but one of them is gaining instead of loosing like the others So I waited 12 hours and re measured and noticed more of a drop on the 3 and the forth one gained another 1/4 of an inch. Anybody seen this before because redwood is stumped on this even tho it's going to he in their hands next week.

Have you tried the relearn process where you teach it a new 'level' ?

I haven't yet, but have been meaning to since mine comes out a LIL nose low when it auto levels, not enough to cause any issues, except maybe doors swinging on their own...
I just know that it can be done from the manuals... let me look for it in the pdf I downloaded...

can't find it right now let me look around...
or maybe call lippert ? 574-537-8900

Yeah I have tried the re learn process but still no go. What I find odd is a brand new trailer maybe having one of six malfunctioning but 4 out of six is boggling and one of those increases 1/4 of and inch a day until it's about 1 1/2 inches more than it first re leveled. That's what's the weirdest

Here is the procedure for resetting the level position...
Manually level the coach, front to back AND left to right. Once the coach is level

1. Turn “ON/OFF” button “OFF”
2. Push “FRONT” button 10 times,
3. Push “REAR” button 10 times
4. Control will flash and beep, LCD says “ZERO POINT CALIBRATE”
5. To memorize this level condition , press “ENTER”
6. LCD says “ZERO POINT STABILITY SUCCESSFULLY SET”
7. The control will then turn off.
8. Turn “ON/OFF” on to commence operation.

Chuck, I manually levelled then went thru the Zero Point Calibration.

Auto level and return to unhook position works fine.

Be sure to manually level it before doing this or it will relearn exactly as it is.

I am guessing that you have some solenoid actuated valves leaking in the system. This seems to me to be an issue you should be discussing with Redwood and/or Lippert if the trailer is still under warranty.

Like I said earlier. This thing is going back Wednesday but it is bothering the heck out of me why I can't fix this But I have done everything you can think of. Now I have to wait till I get it back from redwood with this one of 63 problems to he fixed. But I think most of the issues is deceived from this. A simple problem that the dealer said they can't duplicate but created so many more since then. Any way enough of that. But I just wish I can fix this my self and I know now I have to wait till I get if back to see it fixed instead
