I would think you simply turn the system on... and if the flashing green light isn't on in the center, then just press the AUTO-LEVEL button, and it should level itself back out.

Or...

If you see the blinking yellow light in one of the quadrants (say, the front)... put it in 'manual' mode, and simply raise or lower whichever set of legs you need (in my example, the front legs) until you get the green light in the center again.

When mine is sitting in Florida I just unlevel the unit by pushing either the front or rear buttons in manual mode. Then I push "auto level" and let it do its thing.

My unit sits on a concrete pad for 4 months down in Florida. The hydraulic rams move over a two week period. About every third week I do the "auto level" thing.

Goldenyears, did you get your Rig re-leveled? I wandered about this myself. I would do mine manually due to concern with having slides out and how the "autolevel" would work. I would not wanting it to go thru same process as it did iniatily and creating a bind on slides.

The relevel with slides out shouldn't be a problem. After all, the dealer will extend and retract the slides many times without the unit being level.

I just turn mine on and hit the button. A few adjustments later and it's back in the bubbles again.

Will check at work tomorrow with hydraulics expert, had spoken with him briefly on mine leaking down over a two week time period, he said return valve leaking through, but after looking at mine today earlier, It seems I have 3 lines to each cylinder, I had told him a supply and return. Would love a flow diagram of the Hydraulic 6pt. level up.

I know that there are many different brands of trailers that Thor owns that appear to be doing the same. Redwood, Heartland, and Dutchmen owners are all talking about this issue.

I can imagine that your expert can determine what the problem is with our 6 point leveling system. Kinda wish every expert of all facets of our units being built had been there before it was built. Unfortunately, the experts are sought to figure out the issues after versus before.
