Center jacks on LCI Ground Control 3.0

Hello all. Can anyone tell me on the LCI Ground Control 3.0 six point leveling jacks, if we're staying hitched up overnight, can I just put down the center jacks? I couldn't see that I could on the control panel or the phone app. I just wanted to stabilize the 5'er a little, had to put down the landing gear a little instead. Can anyone help?

Not an expert, but I don't think you can put down the center (stabilizer) jacks separately.

On second thought, why not just put down the rear jacks for stability which can be done on your app.

I don't think you can. I can lower my center jacks under certain conditions manually though. I think it is when I have a error showing. A while ago I downloaded a LCI 3.0 manual I found online and it is good to have on hand. It is difficult to remember everything unless you use the leveling jacks everyday. My truck is in the shop so I can't look it up right now. Try going here, https://www.manualslib.com/manual/12...ntrol-3-0.html

I have looked into this and no, you cannot put down the center jacks independently. We don't move around too much but on several tries we have hit the "out-of-stroke" error and the center jacks don't go down.



We check with a carpenter's level on the kitchen island that we are square and level and just leave it. This time next week we are going to a local dealer for re-call work and will try it again, messing with the number of leggo blocks, pin adjustment, local breezes, moon phase, Coriolis effect for 39 degrees latitude and so forth to find that secret sauce that the leveling might actually work.

My automatic leveling works flawless on hard ground. It's the soft ground that throws the errors. I even tryed wood blocks but they give and throw errors. I might retract and start over. Then I think if I push left and right together the center jacks will extend. Also I think if you push left and rear the left center will go down or right and rear the right center will go down. As long as the unit is fairly level in the end I'm happy with it. With camping you can't always get that ideal lot.

The other people that chimed in are correct. But someone mentioned lowering the rear jacks which would do exactly what you need. One added point. I recently had to “zero out” my 3.0 leveling system because the system was claiming “Success, Your Trailer is Level!” But once inside we realized that we were either off level or the earth was crooked! But you can’t argue with a level. Once I “zero’d” it out with the app on my phone it’s works great every time. I took several reading with a level to make sure it was level side to side and front and rear and once it was level, I selected the “Re-zero” button (it might be called something else) and it remembers those settings when you use the auto leveler. The earth is no longer crooked. LOL!

Zero-point calibration, had to do the same thing myself recently, no idea why the thing suddenly lost its bearings.

Also, I have tried every which way, and have not found a way to independently control the middle "stabilizers." By the way, that's what Lippert calls the center jacks, stabilizers, not levelers, for what it's worth.

This is crazy. How can a leveling system be so complicated? I just dropped the landing gear firmly and left it at that. At least the bedroom was stable. Dealer also told me you can't just put the center jacks down. Also suggested just putting down rear. Shouldve leveled completely cuz storm almost blew us away in Arkansas.

Ya u gotta introduce an error to do just center jacks. I manually lower front and rears when staying hooked to get stable and a little more level. They do not want u to mess with centers. I can see someone lifting up FW from just the center, not good.
Between zeroing out and resetting level just to work I get excited when it says Success!!
Just like when my big schwintec kitchen slide opens and closes.
