OK, is this something I can re-format and check myself or do I need to have it done after the Rally when I have an appt at the Service Center ?



When I use the auto level and she's all done doing her dance and says "success", the nose is down about a third of a bubble on a level placed on the kitchen island. I can go out to the panel and raise the front legs and then it's ok.



Is this a reprogramming issue ?

I'd first verify that theisland is level and the bubble doesn't have bubble gum under it



the fridge beinglevel is the critical part (but half a bubble is probably fine for it )

I find it is off on really un-level sites. I find it easier to level from front to back with my front landing gear, then scan using the arrow up down buttons to find manual level on the read out then press enter then bring right side then left side down to level side to side until the level on the door on the controller is true. The side by side works the same as the front landing gear, one will come down then the other before it starts raising that side. Really fast and true. I don't like the way the front landing gear goes almost to the ground before going back up on Automatic Level, with manual you are almost level front to back when disconnected from the truck.

Make sure the truck is away from the Redwood before leveling and play with it for a while. I think you will find it easier and faster, not counting more true and stable.

I believe there is a way for you to recalibrate the level up system. I have not had to do it so don't know how. Look in the instruction book that came with the system or go the web.

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.

Thanks so much to you both !! Success !!
If either or both of you are at the Rally, beer is on me.
Left my manuals at home and it was driving me nuts.

So, am I right in figuring you level unit then do the zero point calibration? I have been wanting to do mine but have been afraid to do so.

Absolutely, easy!!! Just level your coach first and follow Grandpa's instructions noted above.

BTW, if you have a smart phone, there is a free app called the "Bubble App" that gives your phone the ability to become a level. Lay your phone on its back and it will present a circular bubble, and turn it on its side and it will display a typical level. Pretty cool.Edited by: Adamsvr

Do you have to have it level manually before step 1?

LCI recommends it; however, I've successfully used the LCI control panel to level it. Or use the smart app above or a real level.
