Can anyone tell how to activate one jack at a time. After leveling with auto, left rear is extremely lower then the rest of the coach

No way to raise or lower just one jack. You have raise or lower pairs of jacks. Both rear up or down both front up or down. Or the both left or right.

Turn system on, select manual mode, push up button on side (front and rear will operate) that jack needs to go down on until it hits the ground.

I have similar jacks on my coach. Turn the system on and it is in manual mode. Do not press the auto button. Use the arrow buttons to level you coach the best you can. Once it is level there is a way to "calibrate" your system, but I can't remember which buttons do that. That will reset the leveling system for you and make it easier for the system to find level in the auto model. When I can, I'll dig out my manual and find the method and post it for you.

Smile Calibrating Jacks

Boy, I'd appreciate any info I can get on calibrating my jacks. We have a new H.R. Vacationer and it leans toward the left when up on its jacks. We were told that the dealer should have calibrated the jacks when the unit was delivered. We just had our shakedown run - 1500 miles roundtrip from Asheville, NC to Pompano Beach. Lost the co-pilot windshield wiper, and we have evaporator issues with the chassis A/C. A couple other minor glitches, but the closest Monaco dealer is in Greensboro - a couple hundred miles away. I was able to fix the wiper arm problem - it wasn't torqued down correctly at the factory. It will go into Ford for the evaporator issue.
All in all it was a pretty good shakedown run.

Your system should be the same as my 2007 Discovery. I am picking up the coach tomorrow and will take a picture. I should have the Manuel on resetting the system also.
You just need to hold down the Man button and press Front, Back, Left, or Right.

MagnJoe,

Here it is straight from the manual for my Kwikee Level Best (Atwood) leveling system. You must first have the coach in a reasonably level position before doing this. Find a parking lot or some location that is reasonably level. Then manually level the coach the best you can and turn off the system. Then follow the below procedure.

"Turn the coach ignition to the acvcessory position. Make sure the level control is not turned on. With the coach in a level attitude press and hold the ALL UP, BI-LEVEL FRONT and BI-LEVEL REAR buttons simultaneously. You should hear an audible beep. Turn the control "on" and all four indicator lights should now be lit indicating the level sensor is showing the coach to be level. I*f all four LED's ar not illuminate4d repeat the last 2 steps.
(NOTE: Coach must be level first.)"

The above is a direct quote from my manual for our 2007 Voyage. Hope this works for you. It is also possible that you are parked in an area where the slope is beyond the ability of the jacks to completely level your coach. If that is the case you may need to park with the left side blocked. Use 2x12's or such under the tires to gain some height there. You can also block under the jack pads to accomplish this, but be careful and try not to get the rear wheels off the ground.

Please let us know if this helps.

In 07 & 08 Fleetwood was using Power Gear Elec Jacks on Bounders. Are you sure yours are Attwood ?

CT,

Yes my 07 Discovery has Attwood. My unit was a prototype built at the Riverside facility, so it has a lot of the upgrades that were standard on Excursion/Providence at that time. They put 8,000 miles on it before they sold it to me.
