Many of them will drop quite fast my bet is your using auto level to level which often pushes the coach much higher than needed. This makes it drop hard when coming down. Several companies have tried putting flow restricters in the lines to slow the drop but they fail and then your stuck up. Sadly auto level is not the way to level I have not yet found a system that will level as low as I can manually and I can level it the exact or near exact level every time. No auto system can do that even in high end systems on a flat concrete floor you can level it 10 times and it will never level the same each time will be slightly different.

Thanks for all of the answers - even the one that caught my bad description. Got quite a laugh from it. Always enjoy poking fun. I like to dish it out and dont mind when I get it back, especially if I set myself up.

The shop has been testing our system thoroughly under direction of the Lippert Tech at the factory. The Lippert Lad (Tech) has been over and has decided that all 4 jacks need to be replaced. Says they are too noisy. I am not sure what that means except we are a couple more days in service.

To date I have never used the auto leveling system. Our tech discouraged that during the orientation training. I spent several years as a survey crew chief so understand the principles of making things level. I surveyed when instruments were all manual and can recall a time when the level image was upside down.

Hopefully the new jacks will solve the issues. Parts today, installation tomorrow.

All I have ever used is the Auto Level. Hope you get it worked out.

Gordon..I have the same problem...sometimes! Lazydays tech told me that they had replaced the pump in a number of coaches...but now Lippert wanted a video of the "drop"... Of course my coach behaved. Lippert was at the irv2 rally in myrtle beach last month...field rep came to my coach...yup you guessed it...smooth and easy decline.... Another tech told me a flapper valve, that moves back and forth sticks till the pressure build up and forces it to allow fluid to flow in reverse...thus the drop...of course I also have the Lippert slide rattle too... But that's another story...

They are replacing the jacks as I type this. Winnebago was gracious enough to pull a set of jacks out of the production line. Not sure if it will effect them but it sure helps us out.
