    The auto level button on the remote needs to be held down for a couple seconds to activate, unlike the single push on the GC panel on the coach. It took me a couple uses to figure this out on mine but has worked every time once I found out. I can hit the auto level on the remote from inside the truck after I have pulled out of the way and the trailer does it's thing while I am unloading and buttoning up the truck. Even a few seconds saved when your thirsty is nice...plus looks cool to the neighbors

I was only thinking of the front side storage cause I really never use the other one. Itís mounted on the ceiling in there and mine does have the wire coming out.Attachment 21109
    Man, am I glad I found this thread. I too thought the antenna wire would be coming out of the control panel. Didn't know there was a separate controller. Soon as I read this, I sprinted down to the barn to look in my front compartment. Sure enough, there is a controller up there, but my elation cratered when I didn't see a wire hanging down. Not one to give up too easily, I grabbed a flashlight and, lo and behold, there is an antenna wire, but it was stuffed up between the controller and the front wall, not hanging down. Yay! I can get a remote and quit banging my head and getting a stiff neck every time we unhook or hook up. At my age I don't bend as easily as I used to.

    Hi Todd. I currently have the same issue. I saw on YouTube that the 5th wheel must be level before pushing 5 times. My question is Do the rear jacks stay up during this process? How far down is a good place o leave the front Jack's. We usually leave about 6 or 7 holes on the front. So afraid of messing it up. Any help is appreciated. Thank you
    Tom

    Here is a tip for those with the 3.0 6-point system that I learned this weekend. The camp site didn't seem to be much out of level, so after dropping the front jacks and unhitching the TV, I push Auto Level. The rear jacks ground themselves and start the leveling process. Before completing (and before the stabilizers come down) I get an error "Auto Level Fail". I retract the rear and try again, only to get the same result (definition of insanity?). After some head scratching and finally getting internet service, I read the Troubleshooting Guide online. It says "...due to uneven ground". So, I retract the rear and put a couple of blocks under each rear pad. Press Auto Level and it worked like a charm! From now on, no matter how "level" the site looks, I will always place 1-2 (or more) blocks under the pads before beginning. Happy trails...

    Sorry I missed this. I usually drop front jacks to about 4Ē off the ground. I did the procedure and seems to work fine. I am not even sure I was on level ground when I did it.

    Sorry. I missed part of your post about the rear jacks. It made me think what I actually did. Itís been awhile, but my recollection is that I was on fairly level ground. I then put it in auto level mode and let it do its thing. As usual, it was off, so I adjusted using a level. Once in level position, then I performed the reset function.
