Leveler System

I have only had 2 coaches with a leveler system, and one was manual, the automatic Hydraulic system on my Alante seems to have a glitch, not sure. When I level the coach on either manual or auto most of the time it leaves the passenger rear jack up in the air, sometimes only a few inches and at other times a foot. This leaves the coach on a tri-pod stance which cant be good, either for stability, or alignment of components. I can force the errant jack down by going to manual and hitting rear jacks button.
I liked my fully manual Quadra system much better as it was power in/out 2 jacks at a time. This PowerGear system is 'Jacked' so to speak, if you go a bit to high up and cant compensate with the other jacks you have to retract them all and start over, very bad design.
And yes, I lower both the front & rear for a 3" lift before leveling on manual, just as the book suggests. Any suggestions??

If it's a lippert system you can get them on the phone and they will walk you through your issue and tell you if you have an issue or a simple calibration that you can do with somone telling you how to do it. I called them once and left a message and got a call back in less than 15 minutes. They resolved my issue on the phone in about 10 minutes.

We had the right rear jack not deploy when we first bought our 31ul. I went through the setup as described in the manual and it still would not deploy on auto. Called Jayco and they hooked me up with Lippert. We spent about a half an hour going through different procedures and it started working. Have no idea what fixed it but it worked properly after that.
