Atwood Level Legs Operation

I have a 2010 Ventana with Atwood Level Legs electric system with auto level. Auto level works OK on a level service but I can't make adjustments after auto leveling? The info I have and online info is sparce. Either that or I can't follow directions. I would like to just manually level my coach and be done. Electric is so slow. Thanks

We, too, have Atwood electric jacks. If properly calibrated, the AUTO level should do it's job, even on an unlevel pad. You may have to start over & use blocks under them for really unlevel sites.

To manually level, I start by pressing the AUTO button until the jacks just touch, then press the AUTO to stop the process. Then pressing the EXT button, press the FRONT, REAR, DRIVER, PASS (depending on which side you need leveled) until you reach your goal.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

With both sets of Atwood electric jacks I have had on our Canyon Star, after Auto leveling I've been able to turn them back on with the power button and fine tune the leveling by momentarily pressing EXTend (or RETract) until the corresponding LED is lit, then pressing the buttons to raise (or lower) the corresponding end or side as Lori said.

I manually level a little differently than Lori: Turn the power on, press extend and all and they will all extend to the ground and stop. I then follow the manual procedure above to level the coach.

The second post in this thread has a link to the manual which has the method to set the auto level.

I am so confused.....I have a leveleg system and been having issues with one retracting. I read the instructions for AUTO as programmable. So if it is preprogrammed, it must be for one specific location (like at home). Not as Automatic....to level at different locations with different pitches. What is Extend All for? Like I said I am confused.....I bet I've read the instructions 10 times....not real clear.

I did talk to Atwood this week, and was told to "reboot" the entire system, find the controller and disconnect the 6 pin cable and the 12 volt source. And each leg has some memory just killing 12v won't clear all the legs and the controller.
