Front sinking

Does anyone have a idea of why the front would sink after leveling the jacks I always make sure to go into drive after reversing then neutral then pull brake

Not sure what you have going on. When you set you jacks, the air will release the coach down onto the jacks. After that you're on the jacks. If you sink then, I'd think it is a jack adjustment to level. Otherwise, I am not understanding what you have going on. Assume when you say you are shifting, you are trying to take the air off the tag. Otherwise, I don't know what that shift maneuver accomplishes. Not a flame,,,just confused.

I don't understand the shifting after leveling either. Once you have leveled the RV and turned off the jacks control, THEN is 'sinks?' Suggest you measure drop with a tape measure to be sure. It could be a leaking valve that allows fluid back to reservoir.

Being you're under warranty, let the dealer find the problem.

Johnny, my jacks were doing the same thing the couple of nights we stayed in the MH at Lazy Days before it went back to Entegra. It would be out of level, dipping to the front by morning. They replaced the jacks.

Not necessarily. If the valves that close to hold pressure in the cylinder leaks, it would just leak back down the hydraulic line into the reservoir. If the leak was a loose fitting or piston seal, then it would show on the ground.

I think you have a leaking (not on the ground) control valve. You need a warranty repair. Like Chuck said they might just replace the front jacks. My jacks do not "creep" after leveling. My old Monaco did it constantly until the jacks were exercised a lot.

Maybe a new 2014 feature, it's supposed to catapult you out of bed in the morning.
