Help— Air hiss after auto level

Hi,
Maiden voyage of my new Seneca, and I just put down the auto levelers on a mostly flat driveway. The leveling seems to be fine, but we hear a hiss of air continually in the back end. It has been going for a couple minutes now. Is this normal????

Sorry…. Just used the search after panicking a bit and it seems all is fine. If I am wrong, please let me know.

Sorry for the new thread

If that is really the case... I would have it inspected for damage.

Air releasing from the air bags and it’s normal.

I manually lower the rear jacks and release the air before running auto level.

Some folks have added a dump valve to release air from the air bags before leveling
