    I put leveling blocks under the feet to minimize extension lengths before hitting auto-level.

    If the site is way off level, i will drive the low side up on the Andersen levelers to prevent the tires from being lifted off the ground.

    If, while unhitching your trailer from the truck, and the front end of the trailer is low (lower than it would be when level) and you hit the auto level, you will get a fault. So on mine, when unhitching and that is the case, I will raise the front of the trailer to a point I can visually see that it is nose high and above level on the front. Then hit the auto level and everything will auto level and life is good. Be warned though, the point that you raised it to will become your "hitch position" for that trip. So if you hit the button for hitch position, you will end up with the front of the trailer higher than it needs to be for hitching. No worries, hit the button to lower the front manually until it's at the correct height for hitching.

    I bought the remote https://www.etrailer.com/Accessories...All%20Products

    A little pricey but I find it useful when hitching and unhitching. I can use it in the truck and look out back window , or the wife can stand beside the truck bed and use it. A lot easier than sticking your head into the compartment.

    If you have the One Control...AND the lippert ground control, you can download a free app for your phone (Apple and Android) to be able to control everything in the ground control system. I've used mine several times already and it's handy.

    For the LCI 3.0 Electric Leveling system like is used on the Solitude S Class, if you have to manually operate the motor/gear housing use a 3/8 drive extension and ratchet.

    Any tip or trick to manually extend the center jacks? I have tried setting to manual and hitting left and right at the same time but it did nothing. That was all I could think of to try.

    With the Lippert 6 point hydraulic you can't move just the center jacks.

    Actually, I do that all the time. Going from memory here, but using the One Control tablet or the phone app, go to Leveling and scroll down to "Manual". hit the "Extend" or "Retract" button and the circle to the left will become active. Then press and hold the "Rear" button and they will do that function. You can also (again going from memory) press the "Left" or Right" button and the "Rear" button simultaneously and you can control either independently. Both center jacks will operate at the same time, either the 2 left or the 2 right. I did this when I installed my snap pads. You can't control each of the center jacks (say, the forward or aft jack) independently though.

    John, sorry but that was very confusing cuz I don’t know what center fore and aft means. There are two front, two center and two rear. As best I can tell you cannot operate a center jack without moving a rear also.
