Auto level

So our new 5th wheel has the lippert 3.0 6pt auto level. I've only used it 4 times but every time I've auto leveled it seems the 5th is nose down. According to my 4ft level I'm off to where the bubble's edge is just barely in the middle gauge. No idea why it does this. Should I recalibrate? The spots I've been in are fairly level already. In my opinion that shouldn't matter but it does state it in the manual.

Ours has operated rather well thus far, although I ran across this the other day so I'll pass it on. I don't believe it would hurt to recalibrate for your own peace of mind. After all the spirit level doesn't lie.
Another issue we encountered was mild creaking of the jacks initially. We found a little shot of light silicone spray on the rams while extended with a wipe of a soft towel, then retracting the rams cured that right away.

Be well.

I had to manually adjust and then recalibrate with the procedure from the manual. Really easy and no big deal to do. The first time I was too slow counting the 10X, the second time I did it relatively fast and the level point reset and has been fine since.

I agree with all that have said recalibrate. I did mine and I think it is just one of those things that has to be done from time to time.
