Atwood Levelegs

My holding tanks don't empty completely when the MH is level, so I have been running up onto boards to raise one side. However, it would be easier if I could use the levelers to do this, but the Atwood Levelegs manual only describes how to level the coach using the auto feature. Is there a way to lower one or two legs on one side only? Thanks.

Bob, you can manually raise the coach unevenly using the Atwood Levelegs, I do it with mine this way: With the levelers retracted, press Extend, then All, this will lower the legs to the ground. When the levelers stop and the green lights are steady green (if I remember correctly) you can press Extend again and press the buttons corresponding to front, rear, left and right to unlevel the coach.

Also, I found that the gray tank was not supported very well and had a bow in the bottom which held a significant amount gray water, I reworked the wood supports, added some support under where the bowing occurred and this resolved most of the problem. The gray water tank still empties slowly but at least it empties fully now.

Thanks, Stewart. I'll take a look at the tank supports--I suspect my configuration is the same as yours.

Looking at this PDF page 31 you manually lower jack with a wrench. I see no electrical means of lowering just two jacks on same chassis rail.
If you can do it as Stewart says I would be careful of twisting the chassis frame and popping windshield.

It works as Stewart described, what he left out is that you can only extend a pair of jacks at a time, not individually......either two front, two rear, two drivers side or two pass. side. Suspect that is to prevent the twisting that 007 refers to.

Yes, that is what I was referring to. In my case, raising the RV's front jack pair all the way drained my gray tank better. Of course the front wheels were off the ground at the dump station.

Nowadays I dump at home into a cleanout I installed next to the RV so I don't have to worry about long dump times.
