Leveling jacks

Parked on a slight incline- when I put down leveling jacks only 3 went down and I am level- is that normal?

Leveling jacks

At a state park and pad is a slight incline. Put jacks down and all but driver front went down. The coach is level- was it that it didn't need to come down-??

Woodview, need year, make, and model of your coach for a good answer. I was on a level site a couple of weeks ago and my back jacks did not come down. Put system in manual and lowered the back jacks just enough to put some weight on them (Lippert Leveling System).

Thanks for coming back with the pertinent information on your coach. Hint here, if you create a signature in your preferences, and add your Make/Model/year/engine of your coach, it will appear on each of your posts. And that way no one has ask when they're trying to help you.

Now, you don't say what kind of leveling system you have or, the maker, I should say. HWH makes a few varieties of systems. I'm not familiar with Lippert systems, if that's what you have. Our system, the HWH 625 Automatic Computer Controlled Leveling System, will operate in the following manor:
1. Set parking brake
2. Turn ignition "off"
3. Turn ignition to "Acc" position
4. Push button on HWH panel to power "On".
5. Push the power button again.

That will start the sequence of: emptying the air bag suspension, and, in approximately 20-30 seconds of air depletion, the HWH jacks, will start to extend. The lowest END will extend first. Then, it will do the lowest side with ONE JACK that has not extended.

And finally, when the coach is level with three jacks, it will then extend that remaining jack enough so that, when it makes contact with the surface, it will raise the coach 3/4"-1" and at that point, the system is satisfied with the leveling process and will shut down the HWH panel completely.

Now, I explain all this to you because I don't know what kind of system yours is or, its total operation procedure. But, if you're used to this coach and, your leveling system has NOT done this before, then yep, you may have cause for concern or, as has been stated, you may just be having a "glitch" in the system. So, you can run it through it's paces again, maybe a couple of times, to make sure you're not having a problem or, are.

Woodview, you have a HWH 725 jack system. Is it still not working? Check hydraulic fluid level.
This is a link to the HWH manual.

Yes the fluid level is ok- I have used the jacks on many occasions and never had a problem- today I am going to put slides back in and try again!
