Wow, sounds like something I would do. Hopefully its OK after drying out

So I pulled the 5er out in our cul-de-sac where it's just about level. Hit Auto Level and of course, it worked. So I put a 3' level in the floor of the kitchen and in the garage and it was a bit off... so I manually leveled it the best I could. It's kind of a pita to try and level both rooms but I got it close and calibrated it. Then I moved the nose of the 5er up a little bit and ran Auto Level............ ERROR. M#*@#$%#%@%@%$****

So I retracted it a little and ran Auto Level and............... ERROR. I'm on almost perfect level ground. I don't get it.

Sorry it didn't work for you. My last suggestion would be to call LCI, as I said before, I spoke with two different technicians and both were more than nice and helpful solving my issue. I feel your pain.

Yea I think I'll do that to see what can be done before I take it to the dealer. I leave for a trip on Tuesday morning so I'm not sure I'll be able to talk to them before that, but I'll call them when I get to the campground in Kentucky on Tuesday to see what they can do over the phone to help.

I really appreciate your feedback on this!

We have a 2015 Seismic 4212 with the Lippert 2.0 leveling system. While I don't know about the electrical issues that have been discussed here I do know that we have 6 batteries and a solar system so power is not an issue for us. What we have had success in leveling, at least 80% of the time is:

1. Before unhooking from TV adjust front legs to compensate for the slope of the front of rv. Ie: if its leaning more to one side then you want to adjust the legs so that the lower side leg is extended down farther than the other leg.

2. After raising the front up and unhooking, eyeball your front to rear level and raise or lower front jacks until the rv looks level from front to back.

3. Lower your mid and rear jacks to about 3" above the ground. We were told this by our camping world tech who said that if these jacks are touching the ground, as we were doing, then the system does not have enough travel in the legs to auto adjust.

We are still in the learning curve in the placement of the legs and have had to hook up again a couple of times to adust the front legs but while the Bigfoot may be a better system the Lippert system is what we have. I agree that we should'nt have to do this with auto level but I don't want to pay $7,000 on top of what we already paid for the unit to add a Bigfoot leveling system. I can tell you that I jump for joy when I see success more often than not now!!

One question I have when in manual mode to get everything level and re-calibrate...

How far off the ground the ground should you be lifting? Obviously the tires should stay on the ground but how much are you taking up off of the suspension?

Not all that much, just enough to set it some.

UPDATE! I am corresponding with Trailer Life Magazine reference the horrible experience I have had with Lippert electric auto leveling system.

For those who have had issues like this thread shows, and are interested it being rectified one way or another. Please contact me via Pm with a letter outlining your year, make and model, and the problems you have had if not rectified yet, along with your name and contact address.

I'm asking for a refund of my system. You can ask for whats good for you.

It's time Lippert gets the press they deserve.

6 point leveling 2.0 Lippert Ground Control.

Last July the front leveling leg failed on the drivers side, the gear box and motor came completely off the top of the leg. That took 8 weeks to fix rendering the unit again unusable.
This week while hooking up to take it to CW for more repairs the passenger side leg starting making the same noise during retract. You guessed it another failure on front leg.
Parts are ordered as of yesterday.
Everyone at this service dept. is convinced that this is due to the weight of the of Seismic 4212 vs a shorter F/W.
For those here that own a toy hauler F/W and use it in frequently your probably OK long-term. However if you use it as a toy hauler as we do and move it around a lot you are doomed as we are.

Leveling Problems

Same exact thing happened this week a year a go on my 2014 3914. Everyone I speak to agrees. Remember weight times arm equals moment, moment being force to lift. Longer the length from pivot point more the force required for same given weight. So yes, those legs require a lot of force to lift the weight.

I guess we should buy a bunch and replace them every year? And yes I'm being sarcastic.

What this really needs is the 4x4 steel legs used in horse trailers on fronts
