Took FL to get weight today. Weight entire rig. Went to get truck weight, dropping RV set down front jacks, PULLED TRUCK UP. Stepped back to auto level; hit auto level, the drivers side front jack drove until readout said: OUT OF STROKE, RV started to twist. The passenger side Front never moved, the middle jack had hit the ground an Jack stopped when it the ground. The passenger side rear never came down, then the rear driver side started down it went about half the stroke. Picture the driver side is 20 inches up, the passenger side is cocked and the trailer is started. Crabbing. Killed controller and backed up lowered RV , SCARED HAS H€LL while doing , got RV back to bed, 6 inches off the head. Had to reposition truck to get RV engaged. Took RV to EXPLORERUSA to test issue, worked fine, when the controller acted up I had both drivers tires off the road front: about 5 inches. Rear about 3 inches.
I had Truckes checking out the view. Wish I had been willing to risk taking photo, too busy trying to get RV level again.

Due to the many uneven pads at State Parks I have been doing mine manually. It is actually faster. I level from front to back with the front landing gears, then left to right which ever needs to be brought up to level. Both bubbles are right on, on my leveling control panel and the bathroom door operates right.

Check out Trailerlife's forum below on "Out of Stroke". Appears it has happened before. Good luck.
