3914 Owners: Info needed pls, mounted position of rear jacks

Looking if you can let me know (3914 owners) if your rear jacks of the 6pt leveling system are not evenly spaced distance wise behind the rear axle. My curb side is a foot and a half or two feet further back than the street side. This is due to position of the rear steps. Can you let me know if you have similar mounting spots or if yours are even? Also let me know also if you're having issues with out of stroke errors of the rear jacks when auto leveling?

Simple physics says that without these being same distance from rear axles there will be additional forces put on those jacks when operating independently than if spaced equal distance together from rear axles.

Thanks in advance for your help!

My Seismic Wave has the same offset, but this is nothing to worry about. In home construction, it is not unusual for beams to be cantilevered as much as 4'. So a foot and an half offset is acceptable on a steel beam. As for 6 point automatic leveling system getting stroke errors, this is common when the jack cannot not extend enough to level the trailer as needed. I found an easy way to avoid this problem.
1) After the tow vehicle is disconnected, start the Automatic leveling process. The front jacks will raise or lower to get out trailer close to level, front to back.
2) As the rear jacks start to extend, stop the leveling process and if it looks like you need to add leveling blocks under the rear and center jacks, do this at this time.
3) Restart the Automatic leveling process and the trailer should level flawlessly.

I would love to know if this solves your problems.

Plenty of travel on rear jacks. I drop the legs almost full length. They amp out not physical travel.

From those who have responded, which of you guys have had issues leveling from unlevel up to 1.5 degrees (or more) left or right? Thanks for the feedback.

None here. I've had 3 wheels off the ground before using the auto level system. I do know there is a recalibration that can be done, that may help.
