Big Foot Leveling system

Does anyone have a problem with the rear legs not coming down all the way with the big Foot? I am wondering if this a problem with other than Carriage fivers ???

Thanks Richard, I have talked with Jason. The first time it was a bad ground on the ground bar. the washer was not digging into the bar. I took it apart cleaned and used NO OX. It was better but still did it some. On this trip it has worked one out of three. I will be home today and I am going to call. I was just wondering if anyone else having problems.

Well, Tom, now that you mention it, we're having a problem similar to the one we had shortly after purchase. The driver side rear, deploys really sloooooow. Not a problem on mostly level ground, but on uneven surfaces the computer doesn't know what to do and the rig ends up on two legs. I talked to the Bigfoot folks and I have an appointment next week to get it fixed at their headquarters in White Pigeon, MI. Doubt that we will make that appointment given our truck problems, but we'll get there eventually.

Meant to mention this to you before, but the truck issue has been occupying my mind the past week.

I talked with Jason today at Big Foot and he thinks a ground is loose somewhere. I am going to call Carriage and find out where the grounds are located as this system was installed by them.
Dave, hope you get your truck going soon. If you stay in North Dakota much longer they going to claim you as a resident and you have to pay taxes.
Tom

I've had this problem also on my 2009 HitchHiker, it drove me crazy, till I discovered that I was starting with the front to high. The instruction says to have the front higher than the rear before you hit the auto button. Now after I pull the truck out I lower the front till it's just a little higher than the back and have not had a problem. All the jacks work just like they're supposed to.

Bob

When it fails, I lower the front to where it lower than the back and it works.
