Auto Leveling Problem

After my last trip, over some very rough roads, suddenly my auto leveling does not seem to be working. I can level manually with the buttons and a 4 foot bubble level, but the auto leveling seems to be continually trying to level and shows the right front side to be low, even when the left side is actually low according to the bubble level.

I'm looking for possible suggestions even though I may not be able to investigate for a while. The coach is presently in storage while we live with dad after my mom's unexpected passing.

Also the lot we are presently sitting on is not very level although with blocks under the front tires I can get the coach to level manually. Without the blocks I was getting an excessive slope warning. Also there does not seem to be any air leaks.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated and as soon as I'm able to look I will post the results

It sounds like it may need recalibrating. My HWH hydraulic and my Power Gear Electric jacks had directions to do it.

Call HWH and ask for help. It usually takes a couple of days for them to respond but they are very good at helping you trouble shoot your problem. As suggested, I would look at calibrating the level sensor. You can go to the HWH website and download instructions for your model. All you have to do is find the sensor.

My HWH system had a similar problem. One of the three adjusting screws on the sensor board had broken, allowing it to tilt instead of reflecting true level. Good luck!

My guess is hwh needs calibrated. Can be adjusted for level and sensitivity I believe. Stuarts service in Elkhart did mine last march. Works better than it did when I got coach new.

I get the same thing after traveling over some rough roads. Problem is that the HWH level sensor gets its self a little mixed up. It will most likely straighten itself out after your net trip. Nothing really broken

Thanks for the suggestions. I will travel to the HWH site to see if I can get the instructions.

As I said, the coach is still in storage although we go down every couple of days to check things out. It may be a while before I can verify what I find out.

Thank you for the suggestions. I am also hoping a recalibration might work.

I was able to get a Service Manual from the HWH site. This is a Computerized Leveling System, 2000 model. In about a week we will be moving back into the coach and moving to a park somewhat close to dad's house. Once we move in I should have more opportunities to do a little T/Sing. I will have to find the sensing unit to make any necessary adjustments.

OK, here's an update, I finally received an email from CC with a description of the location of the sensing unit. It is not a large stand alone unit as I thought, but just a circuit board attached to the HWH Brain. It is somewhat of a rinky dink design but I guess it works. I manually leveled the coach then adjusted the screw and hex screw until all 4 LED's were out. It appears to be fixed, hooray!

Thank you to all the experts here who helped with advice. As usual, you were all spot on and I am very grateful.

Here's a picture of the HWH Brain and sensing unit. There are three of these "cans" one behind the other that in total are the brain. The sensing unit is the board shown in the red box. The 4 LED's are in the blue box. The adjusting screws are on the outside of the can on the left side. (Sorry, my picture does not show them, but you can see them coming through the black phenolic block the circuit card mounts to.)
