auto leveling system will not go back to unhitched position

Ok, look, I love the hydraulic leveling system but for some reason, the last few times I try to re-hitch the system will not go back to the unhitched position. I press Left/Right buttons as instructed and the screen states "ERROR, feature disabled". Of course I can manually re-hitch but I've gotten spoiled by that feature, how do I get it back?

I experienced a similar error message, so finally gave up and do it manually. I was told you have to raise the front of the coach before pressing the "Auto Level".

Haven't tried it, but this was the response I received.

Call LCI and see if they can resolve the problem; however, as Oriana said, the front of the coach needs to be higher than the rear to enable the auto retract and return to where you hooked up.

If I use the auto level feature, how would the front of the coach be higher than the rear Do you mean the front legs must be extended more than the rear? If that's the case than it is .

Yes, raise the front jacks a little more than the rear jacks and hit the right/ left buttons to return the coach to the hook up height.

I never had to do that before, is this something new, or have you always had to do that?

Depends on where you park and how you are level. Most times we just have to push the right/left arrows to hook up.

So, let's say you push the left/right buttons and the display shows "ERROR" "feature disabled" would you then hit enter to acknowledge, then press the front button to raise it some and then try the left/right again?

I'd enter the manual mode and give it a try. Don't think anything is wrong with your LCI leveling system.

Anyone have a manual. There is a way to reset this.
