auto leveling problem

I have a lippert 4 point leveling system, the rear jacks are moving down in auto level mode but they are not making contact with the ground, at this point the front jacks level the camper, and system says auto level success. Has this happened to anyone.

I am interested to see if anyone else is having this problem also. My 2015 323LKTS did the same thing on my weekend trip.

I have never had this problem on my 2016 323LKTS. However, I always put blocks under the rear jacks so they don't get to extend near the end of travel.

Absolutely!! I have Lippert 2.0 Ground Control and it is really messed up.
Contact with LCI phone service was no help, nice folk, just no resolution.
Had a qualified RV tech work with this while communicating to LCI and he had NO success.
Ok, so the system worked fine for 12 months then all you know what broke loose.
Front jacks work fine, then we get all types of error codes, jacks that don't come down all the way without touching and on board system says " Auto Level Success"
Haha. Oh well we really don't know where to turn now.

I called LCI talked to service guy, he told me to locate the level sensor that is mounted to the frame in the center of the camper behind the rear axle, mine was located right by the spare tire inside the underbelly, tech said they loosen up causing this problem or the sensor goes bad, sensor needs to feel frame movement to work right. I found the sensor loose and tightened it up tried to operate auto level but it still didn't work right, gonna call back tomorrow and see if they will warranty a level sensor, LCI guy was very helpful and seemed to know what he was talking about.

Thanks for your suggestion Dalebra. I do use blocks so as to not need to fully extend. I recalibrated (Zero Set according to the LCI app) my jacks last night. They seem to be working again.

X2

Not positive, but I think Jayco went to Ground Control 3.0 with the 2016 models so that may have something to do with it. I've read numerous horror stories about GC 2.0 on this forum, but have had no problems with GC 3.0

I called LCI back today, explained that the sensor was loose, tried to re level but was unsuccessful. LCI is convinced the rear level sensor is bad, and they are mailing me a new with no charge, very happy with there knowledge and helpfulness over the phone.

Keep us posted and possibly post some pictures of your swap if possible. It could be useful for the rest of us down the road.
