I was lucky enough to have an "inspection hole" that was already in the under belly. It was were my slide motor was mounted. Doubt you would have that. I was just very lucky that it was there and I could see the sensor from it.

I was able to remove a few of the screws holding the underbelly along one side and pulled it down to access the module and mount it, after I saw where it was. All without cutting anything.

The tech. at LCI had warned me that if I was to take it to the dealer they would most likely just start cutting away until they found it, I figured that would not be acceptable for me.

I looked under right behind the rear axle and I'm not really happy with how they've stuffed some of the under belly up as it should have been cut off clean and screwed down to make 1 solid sheet across the entire underside. It's this crap that really gets my goat of not paying attention to detail. I'll take some pictures, maybe I'm just being anal about things and it's not really that big of a deal.

Quick question - before you fixed that sensor, could you ever get the auto level to work? I've gotten mine to work twice out of probably 50 tries, but it has worked a couple of times, it's just extremely hit or miss.

Every time I "zero point calibrated" the system, it would work, until I moved the 5th wheel, then the error "unable to level" every time.

So I crawl under and there is access panel in the very middle, a few feet behind the rear axle and just in front of one of the generator gas tank. I take the 4 screws out of the panel and low and behold, there is the censor. Is there supposed to be 1 in the rear, in the center... or 2, on each corner?

They at least built a wood frame for the sensor that it's mounted to, but it's flimsy and other than the frame being connected to the metal frame, where the sensor is, it's only supported by the plastic underbelly. So it can easily bounce around... here are some pictures.




Looking to the right and left of what else is under the plastic underbelly




Pictures back at the hole, the phone camera was just in front of the rear axel

1 sensor. According to LCI. must be mounted so it CANNOT move and must be mounted in the correct orientations, which are on the sensor. "This side up" and "Forward" if I remember correctly. Behind axles and centered are good.

I'll see if I can get it off that wood frame but they may have 2 out of 3. It's centered and behind rear axel. It's just not on something that won't move, cause I can easily move that wood frame.

What did you mount yours to so the orientation of the sensor was correct?

I moved the sensor to the other side of that wood frame, the piece actually screwed to the fame which was solid. I'm not sure why they built that frame, was a waste of time. They should have just screwed the sensor to the piece of wood that they already had screwed to the frame.

I need to pull the trailer out of the side yard to a level parking lot to take some drone video of it tomorrow, I'll try to calibrate it then too and see if I have luck getting the auto level to work.

I left it on the wood like yours and screwed it to the frame member, just as you have done. Hope this solves your problem.

This past weekend it stormed VERY bad in Wisconsin. Around 10:30 at night we hear a beep... beep.. beep... (you get the point) couldn't find it. Went to the operator panel of the leveling system and that was it. I left the freaking basement door up. The touch pad controller was full of water...... Ugh... Closed the storage door and left the little door for the touch pad open to hopefully dry out. I finally figure this thing out and BAM.... Stupid sets in again and now I will find out tonight if it still works or not..
