side to side leveling

I have a 2016 39mb and have tried everything to get my rig level side to side but nothing works. My site is level front to back with a 1inch slope side to side . I zeroed out the level system as per the manual added blocks but no luck. Does anyone have and idea for fix to my problem?

I zero calibrated mine using 2 levels at the same time on the kitchen lino. 4' running front to back and a 2' going side to side. Followed the Lippert instructions and has been fine ever since. Not sure why you would need blocks under the legs unless you were out of stroke. I would try to repeat the procedure and see if that helps.

I use 3" wood pads under my levelers it reduces the chance of over stock. I have followed the lip. manual and still can't get level side to side. My rig is going back to the factory in October but didn't wont to wait that long to level my rig. If I were to manually level rig and then recalibrate would that solve my issue?

That is what you need to do. Get a 4 ft level and manually level the coach. Shut off control pad then push up arrow 10 times then down arrow 10 times. The unit will then calibrate itself and should be level there after. Go online to lippert and the manual will Teel you how to calibrate

From the Lippert Manual on the auto level system:

LEVEL ZERO POINT CALIBRATION
Before auto-leveling features are available, the Level Zero point must be set.
This is the point to which the system will return when an auto leveling cycle is
initiated.
To set the zero point (controller module must be fully secured in production intent
location), first run a manual leveling sequence to get the vehicle to the desired
level point. Then activate the Level Zero point configuration mode.
This mode is enabled by performing the following sequence:
1. Turn panel off. Then turn panel on.
2. Perform the following:
-Press the FRONT switch 5 times.
-Press the REAR switch 5 times.
3. At this point all LED outputs will blink, and the buzzer will be off.
4. You are now in IDLE mode ready to set Zero Point.
5. With a carpenter’s level, manually level the coach. This will give the
leveling controls the reference point for the Zero Point Configuration.
6. When coach is completely leveled manually press the RETRACT ALL
switch 3 times to set the zero point.

Wow!!! That's TOTALLY different from what I've done. Level it manually til you're happy, turn it off, press up 10 times, down 10 times, then it says calibrated.

Our RW is a 2012 36RL. The instructions I copy and pasted above came from a 44 page .pdf from Lippert , The following instructions come from a 12 page .pdf from Lippert:

Zero Point Calibration
The “Zero Point” is the programmed point that the unit will return to each time the Auto Level feature is used.
The “Zero Point” must be programmed prior to using the Auto Level feature to ensure the proper operation of the
system.
Note: Prior to starting this procedure, double check all connections on the controller, jacks, and touch pad.
1. Manually run the jacks to level the unit. This is best achieved by placing a level in the center of the unit
and leveling it both front to back and then side to side. (See “Basic Jack Operation” for instructions on
how to manually operate the system).
2. Once the unit is level, turn off the touch pad.
3. With the touch pad off, press and release the “FRONT” button (Fig. 1G) ten (10) times and then press
and release the “REAR” button (Fig. 1J) ten (10) times.
4. The touch pad will flash and beep and the display will read “ZERO POINT CALIBRATION ENTER to set,
Power to Exit” (Fig. 5).
5. To set the current position as the zero point, press the “ENTER” button (Fig. 1C).
6. LCD display will read “Zero Point stability check” (Fig. 6).
7. LCD display will read “Zero point set successfully” once process is complete (Fig. 7).
8. The system will set this point as its level state and the touch pad will turn off.

Lippert has several different Leveling systems, that one set of instructions must be for something different that what we have on RWs.
