Power gear level issue

I have a 2006 American Tradition. Has the power gear air and hydraulic combo. It has not been leveling. Right now the front is higher than the back but all the lights indicate it is level.

Read your manual for the leveling system. What you need to do is called "zero point level", or something to that effect. It will explain how to go into manual mode and then manually level the coach. Once you get to your version of level, you can reset the zero point and then when you auto level, it will seek to find that point to level to.

Thanks. I have reset that once before a few months ago. For some reason it is off again. Also when the coach is level it will not stay level. After a few hours it starts to slowly become not level anymore with the air system and with jacks. Not sure what is going on?

I am not familiar with your system but something is either leaking from the system or internally it is leaking. There are probably check valves to keep the hydraulic fluid (if that is what levels the coach) from bleeding back to the reservoir or fluid is leaking from the seals around the pistons or from a fitting. Look for oil in the obvious places. If it is an internal leak then you will not see any oil and the oil level will probably show OK.

Keep us posted please. Q
