HWH Auto Leveling Sensor

Our coach has the newer HWH auto leveling sensor that is suspended by three long screws from the top of a driver side storage bay. After some searching I found a Web page dealing with this new electronic [HERE]. The instructions on the page indicate that if a curb side low condition exists, tighten screw #3 which would be the rear curb side screw. This seems counterintuitive to me since tightening this screw should elevate the curb side of the board which in my mind would lower the curb side of the coach to make the board level. This would not remedy a low curb side situation.

Has anyone here worked with these adjustments? Am I wrong or do these screws have reverse threads?

you can turn any of the screws as needed. don't be put off by unclear instructions. the goal is to turn all the lights off. use any procedure you feel you need to accomplish that. i always try to tighten the screws as opposed to loosening them. i feel if you loosen them they can vibrate even looser. just my ecentricity i guess.
i see you are using the jumper wire for the adjustment. that insures a more accurate adjustment. please feel free to call me if needed.
thanks, paul maddox 1-602-549-3638

The picture is one I've kyped from another site, not mine. I've not employed any jumper.


My question was more to the effect of the passenger side screw (#3). What effect does clockwise turning do, raise or lower the passenger side?

it would lower the sensor on that side . it would tell the computer that that side was lower than it was before. if that side had a led on, it should go out. if both left and right led's are out, it is level side to side.
the screws are just common screws. just adjust it till the lights go out. if the light is on, on that side, it needs to be lowered to turn the led off. they are touchy, so a little movementbwill make a lot of difference.

That's a GOOD thing!

So, that means the instructions on the site I referred to was correct and the device is engineered differently than I had understood.

Many thanks again!
