Auto level lifts tires off ground

Looking for some feedback. We have a 2019 321RSTS and last week was our maiden trip. We were on an improved site (cement pad) that was not level side to side. When the auto level was finished and level, both right side tires were about 1” off the ground.
Questions, is this within “norm” and is it ok to have the tires lifted off the ground? The trailer was level just concerned about the components.
Thanks in advance.

Perfectly fine. Mine has been 6 or more inches off the ground. For it to level, it has to raise the low side. The more off level the more it raises. You can't level and not expect the wheels to always stay on the ground.

Sorry, pet peeve of mine. You were on a concrete pad. Cement is the binding agent in concrete.

If we're mentioning pet peeves... It's not a hot water heater! It's a water heater.

If the water is hot why do I need a heater.

I personally don't like my tires off the ground. I use a level on the pin box and put boards under my tires to make level before using the auto level.

If I needed to level before leveling I wouldn't bother nor spent the money for the auto leveling option. lol

I agree! I don't carry any boards at all. Only on a very few occasions have I used those yellow lego things, but only under the jacks if one side is way off from the other. Don't believe in making more work than need be
