RVA leveling - lights say back is low, level says its good

On my 3-point RVA hydraulic leveling, when I level in auto mode, it stops before coach is level (yellow out-of-level lights On for back of coach.)

1) Does Yellow light On meant that corner of coach is high or low? manual just says yellow means out of level. Maybe it's for either direction.

2) Why is the leveling stopping before "RVA thinks" coach is level?

3) When I manually level, using a 4 ft bubble level, the coach will be level but RVA still thinks back is too high.

Based on #3, I thinking about making an adjustment to the "RVA level sensor mechanism" in the front run box. At least to make yellow lights go out when bubble level says coach is level. That doesn't solve #1 but is a start I think.

However there does not appear to be any adjustment. In pictures I've seen (cant locate now) I recall the three mounting legs for the RVA level having springs so you could tighten/loosen the mounts as necessary to make the sensor level. Mine has the 3 mounting legs but no springs. it looks like a solid standoff leg.

Does anyone have instructions on adjusting the "level sensor" on the roof of the front run box?

Sounds like the system needs to be "re-calibrated".

Thanks.
So back was reading low on RVA display, but in actuality it was high according to bubble level on kitchen floor. Now that I manually have coach level, I need to calibrate the RVA sensor so it agrees.

What is the procedure?

Just loose tighten the three mounting screws on the RVA sensor, i think, until all lights are out on RVA control panel.

I recalibrated mine by doing what you did, using levels on counter top, after getting coach level I adjusted screws with springs until light went out, if you do not have springs I would try shims, wonder if someone removed springs?

Upon closer examination, it looks like rubber hoses is installed on each mounting leg. I should be able to tighten or loosen a little as the rubber compresses/expands some.
