Automatic Leveling system

Recently purchased a FLSA38 fifth wheel and still learning the ins and outs of the unit. My main issue is the automatic leveling system as I am continually having issues with the system going into an error mode. It tells me that there is an issue with the front leveling jack. Brought it into the dealer twice and both times am told that once they reset the system it works fine. Is there a manual for this system out there that I can access. What is provided by JAYCO is sparse to say the least and does not cover any of the codes or reset process. Help is appreciated.

Hi , Yes there is a manual . Your system is made by lippert . If you call them they will send one to your email and you can print it.

Ask and watch what the dealer did to reset the system. That way you can do it yourself if need be.

Welcome to JOF and congratulations on the new 5er.

You can also download the manual from the Lippert website. The system has two different control panels though, so make sure you get the correct manual.

Not sure where you're getting the error, but are you nose high when you start the auto-level process? If not, that could be a part of the problem as, from experience, the system doesn't know how to react if you're level/nose down when starting.

We had issues right out of the gate with our 38FLSA... after trial/error/troubleshooting, it ended up being our left front jack mechanically failed (internal worm gear). I replaced it (got the part warranty)... it has been nearly flawless since. The only time a have any issue is leveling in an extremely un level area. Understand when two jacks (left/right or front/back) are trying to both run/level for an extreme time, it can and will trip your main auto-reset 12v breaker. The amp draw is excessive (well over the 80 amps) for quite some time. I actually have a DC clamp on meter I used while troubleshooting it the first round.

1. Support pin box on hitch,
2. manually retract all jacks,
3. extend all jacks 6",
4. retract all jacks,
5. shut board off,
6. turn board power on and drop front jacks and then hit auto level.

We have been having the same issue - most of the time it is with the center jacks. Occasionally the rear but once we put blocks under them everything works fine. This last trip we received the same message but when wife checked using the leveler inside, it was level so we left them be. It is very frustrating because it seems to take longer to level than our previous unit.
