Auto Level

Was wondering how many of you leave your auto level on when parking your coach for a couple of weeks or months?

Not even overnight. For long term I lower the coach down into the rubber stops inside the airbags as the floor is level.

I leave mine on for the first several hours after setting up. Usually shut it off before bed first night. Will turn it on and let it check level after 4 or 5 days.

We leave the auto level on any time we are staying in the coach. The main air supply bleeds down rather quickly, but the aux pump maintains the level!

You'll need to post a pic of the leveler control panel if you don't know the model.

Just saw your reply to Auto Level. I have a 2008 Monaco Dynasty purchased three years ago. Never could keep coach level and never heard the auxiliary compressor come on. Recently I finally took it in to get to the bottom. Turns out the auxiliary compressor is not there. Had new one installed prior to long trip. Approximately How long of a time period after “auto leveling “ before your auxiliary compressor comes on? Approximately how long does it run before shutting off? Does it cycle more then once? After parking I use the auto leveling feature and keep it on while using the coach. Eight days after initial set up the auxiliary compressor came on and ran for approximately three minutes. Shut off but came back on approximately five minutes later. Has done this five times. I finally started the coach to allow system to air up before neighbors complain.

2008dyn,

Look at your thread you started already. Couple people already answering your questions.

We have been full timing for over 15 years and in our present coach for 11. We have our leveling system, Valid, in Auto virtually all the time. We had cycling problems with our aux pump for a time and found it was plumbed wrong with the check valve at the tank. We changed that and moved the pump to inside a bay out of the weather and now it works great, and has been for years. Our pump comes on maybe 2-3 times a day for about a minute at a time, and of course the coach stays level, for an overnight or for 3 months.

We are entering our 4th year full-time with the Valid leveling system. We leave it on ALL the time.
We too had the pump cycling often. Replumbed it and fixed all other leaks.
Depending upon how level or unlevel, it will cycle once every 1 to 3 days.
I also readjusted how often it 'checks' for level to every 8 hours.

I leave ours on anytime we are in the coach at a campground. If parked at home in the garage it is not activated.

I have been leaving mine on auto level for months when in storage, mostly because I forgot to turn system off, after reading every ones replies I decided I need to remember to turn off when storing coach, thanks for your replies.
