Lippert Level Up System Side to Side Adjustment


I can't seem to make side to side adjustments on the two, front, main legs of my 6 leg Lippert Level-Up system. Anyone know how to do this at the leveling control panel?

They only operate together up and down. By electronically selected valving, they do work with the pair of side to side levelers on each side. So the answer to your question is you can't use just the front main legs to adjust side to side level.

Thanks Ron for answering.

I guess my next question would be: Can I do side to side leveling adjustments with the rear set of legs, i.e. lowing or raising either the left side or right side (rears)? Or is side to side leveling only achieved with leveling blocks?

Thanks,
David

You can use the side to side function by putting the system in "manual" mode and pressing left or right depending on which set of legs you wish to extend to achieve level. If you want to retract either side or front, you must press the retract button. Why not just use the auto level ... that is what it's all about.

 

I would only use leveling blocks in extreme cases ... like when the legs run out of stroke.  The auto level system is awesome ... just let it work and do it's magic.

David,

I won't be much help as our DRV has only the manual control for the Level-Up system.  However, in the past (when we were at a retreat and reunion center in Oregon), in order to get the RV more level, I did have to back the trailer up onto long blocks that would support both front and real axles together.  However, that location was a major exception to most places that we have parked.

For the most part, we seldom ever have had to back up onto thick blocks, but I always use some thick blocks under the six jacks of the Level-Up system.  I do that so that the hydraulic cylinders aren't having to be extended as far, thus providing more stability to the cylinders.

However, as Ron stated, you should be able to get the system into "Manual" mode and operate independently.  From what has been described to me as to how the automatic leveling works, one has to make sure that the truck is totally out from under the fifth wheel because the front end can "dip" down.  As for our leveling process, I always place a two foot carpenter's level on the kitchen floor right in the middle and in front of the entry door.  After getting front to back level, then I turn the level 90 degrees and do side to side.  Then that is followed with the "bathroom door" test....open the door and see if it wants to swing one way or another or stay in place.

Terry makes a good point. In order for the auto level to work, the front of the rig should be slightly higher than level. When the auto sequence begins, the first thing that happens is that the nose dips to below level ... then the system “knows” the starting point. The first time that nose starts going down it’s a little unnerving.
