Can I use manual mode after automatic leveling?

We are camped and set up but the passenger side needs to be raised some. I'm wondering if I can use the manual mode to do it without bringing the slides in and starting over.

manual level

Yes you can. I use mine in the manual mode most of the time. To adjust after an automatic level, just use the up and down arrow buttons on the pad. No problems in doing this.

Yep, I do it all the time. Especially if the coach settles a bit due to soft ground after a rain.

The first part of your question is yes. The second part about doing it with the slides out... I wouldn't.

I quit using "auto" altogether and only use manual with a 24" level on the floor. Auto never leveled correctly for me.

I use Manual mode for tweaking "level" when necessary, slides out; as jacks work in pairs- little chance of binding the slide.
If automatic leveling does not get close to level, the sensor unit requires adjustment. It's a simple procedure,directions in online manual.

Thanks for the replies. I was afraid to try it with the slides out but it worked fine.
