Leveling jacks need adjustment

I continually use my ‘2020 Winnebago Vista levelers and no matter how level the site pad we’re on, the coach is always slightly too low in the front. My question is…can they be adjusted? I use the “auto” function because using “manual” doesn’t seem to work very well ( possibly operator error). Adding pads to the front jacks seems to still end up too low.

Your manual for the jack system will have the procedure to realign the system.

Which brand and model leveling system??
HWH has a pdf for adjusting the leveling sensor, model number dependent.

Adding blocks under any of the jacks does nothing to help the rv get level. The leveling system will simple not extend that jack as much.

Once you have the name of the system, Google 'recalibration procedure for XXXX" to reestablish the level set point, or go to the manufactures website for the manual.

if you bought the coach new, winnebago provides a packet of manuals for all systems.
look in that large file folder, usually found in one of the bedroom overhead cabinets.
hwh has an owners manual, combined with the service manual.
no matter what problem you have, if you want to know whats going on, read the manual.
its the first place to look.
understanding how your system operates helps with the diagnosis.
what brand of leveling system do you have?

You need to do what is known as "setting the null", i.e. telling the auto-level system what "level" means to you. Basically you manually level and then signal to the controller that the current state is what you want it to use as its target for "level". You don't have to use manual mode from scratch - you can use Auto and then make manual adjustments until you are happy with the result.

The procedure varies with the make & model of the auto-level system, so dig out the manual and follow the instructions.

Are you saying the front jack can't lift any or much higher to finish leveling after rears do their thing. Mine is a bit that way. I make sure front is high enough or drop rears some and get higher in front re-adjust rears. I have procedure to properly set pressure relief valve from RVA but is not at top of priority list.....lesser so where pump is tucked up at.
But also already mentioned there is calibrate procedure for all auto leveler systems.
