Electric leveling

Each jack is rated for 5000#'s. More than enough to lift the whole unit of you wanted to. Would I use it to change one tire? You bet.

My buddy has the hydraulic version and uses it when he's doing his bearing repack.

I discovered that the front jacks have a geat deal more travel than the rear jacks. If the ground slopes down from the front of the trailer to the rear, not manually lowering the front jacks with the pins very much, then electrically lowering the front jacks to disconnect makes autoleveling easy.

Shore power only trickle charges the battery. The leveling system is connected directly to batt and not converter. On my truck I could get batt to almost 14 volts. Of course I put the truck very clear. I got a four foot 7 pin extension.

Also how close to perfect level.

Hm I get front to about 10" on the front jacks and it errors out with an angle of +2.1 to +2.0 after a few tries in my driveway. I thought I was maxed out but not. (Tilt level is always good) I have a bit of a rear to front downward slope. When this happens there is no way to lower the center 2 jacks on the 6 point leveling. Yes I drop the manual front jacks to the ground or as close as I can to push in the pin. I think this is due to spring lifting off the truck. I have a 2016 3500HD Silverado. North Point 301RETS.

Thanks. However the middle jacks on our 6 point 3.0 electric system only stabilize and do not lift. I believe the middle jacks on the 6 point hydraulic systems actually lift, making the tire changing possible?

Anyone lift a wheel off the ground to change a tire or pack bearings with the 6 point 3.0 electric?

Thanks.

I presume you lifted one side of the trailer at a time? Would appreciate knowing what procedure you used with the controls to accomplish it.

Thanks in advance.

how do you manually move the center jacks with the 3.0 system 6 leveler system after it goes into error. Have not yet had a successful lever yet since my previous post. Blocks are not the answer as front jacks are dropped to ground before removing 3500HD dually truck. rear to front drop is 6".

Do you run your front jacks down some before dropping the legs to the ground? The front jacks need to be able to move up and down. If you have the front jacks completely retracted and drop the legs, that's not good. Run the jacks down a few a inches before dropping the legs. The rear jacks are more prone to over stroke and need blocks. Also the shorter the jacks run down, the more stable they are.
