In spite of re calibrating the auto-level system in two different motor homes, I usually end up manually fine tuning, using the bathroom and microwave doors.

Right! The HWH leveling system has acceptable limits programmed into the leveling "box". If further leveling is desirable, manual tweaking is the only option.

I think mine is a Lippert though, so they must do the same thing.

We have had a Bounder with electric jacks and now a Holiday Rambler with hydraulic jacks and have re-calibrated both with little success. It seems to be level the first time used after re-calibration but that is it. I level manually checking both front and rear with a four foot level.

Automatic leveling questionable

My auto level system has always seemed to need some manual intervention. I recently bought myself a LevelMate Pro to aid with my manual fine tuning. The RV Geeks recently posted video showing the device on their YouTube video channel

I guess I must be one of the lucky ones here. We have the 625 HWH Automatic Computer Controlled Leveling System in our '04 Itasca Horizon 36GD. The automatic operation has always been successful in obtaining pretty much dead level. However, it has its limits. There is only so much the automatic part of my system, will compensate for. After that, it's manual time.

But, while it has been pretty darned accurate for over 4.5 year of ownership, for some odd reason, it got out of calibration. So, looked up the procedure for calibrating it. It's seriously simple. I recalibrated it in about 5 minutes. Now, in the Automatic mode, it's dead level again, each and every time.

I tried recalibrating mine - and that doesn't seem to be the issue. Mine already knows its not level because it says it says "-0.4" or whatever on the readout when I thumb through it. Instead it just settles for imperfect as good enough and says "successful"

I guess Lippert has been settling for less than perfect for decades, so why change now!

LevelMatePRO is the 21st Century Way to Level an RV!

I think I see one of these in my future.

When we did out walk through the tech suggested we use manual leveling rather than auto. I have tried auto a couple times and it does work. I prefer the manual because the auto seems to bring the coach level about 3 - 4" higher.

Levelers

Our Bounder has Atwood Levellegs Sysyem according to the manual. I have not heard of Lippert. Things change so often it is sometimes hard to keep up.
Although older my control pad looks the same, this is a new twist. Thanks for any info.

I agree. Although I don't have a towable, I can see how it would benefit owners of towables even more.

The thing I like the most about the LevelMate, is you can see how level a campsite is before you even unbuckle your seatbelt. If the campsite is too far off-level, you can look for another campsite without getting out of the driver's seat.
