"Excess Slope" sensor

We pulled into a lovely park, but the spot was pretty sloped. We spent a LONG time jockeying the coach (2006 Country Coach Intrigue) around the spot, because we couldn't level it. We weren't so very picky ourselves (it felt level to us!) but the slides wouldn't go out when the "excess slope" light was on. Is there any way to tell the coach to accept it and give up rather than spend over an hour repositioning the coach? Luckily the endless rain in the Pacific Northwest let up while we were attempting this!

I cannot answer your slide out question, except that we carry those plastic leveling bricks that Camping World sells. They have helped us get to acceptable level in some situations.

I have auto leveling on our coach. I push the auto button and the third time it will level the coach. It seems to ignore the "slope" warning light. I have this problem in my driveway when we are packing for a trip when it is out of the shed. Hope this helps.

One tip from I read on another board, is to be sure you fully dump before attempting to level. It does two things for you:

1) If normal or close to normal flat spot, it allows the front step to be as low as possible to the ground. Saving a first big step.
2) It does allow your leveling system the maximum range to work with.

One caution, not positive if this is applicable to your year and model, is that some leveling systems will allow the rears to extend far enough to break a rear shock. Some coach owners had limit straps added to protect against this.

Our 04 Allure is a unit that can have this problem, and we will add the limit straps before we full time.

Best of luck, have fun, be safe,

Do you have the HWH system? If so, when you enter you camp site, with the system still in travel mode, extend your HWH slides. Then dump your air and auto level. Sometimes cheating is not a crime.
