Auto-Leveler issue

Hi all, I did a search on this to no avail, so I'm going to pose this here.
We have a 22FQS Titanium, the auto leveler went weird on us. It's lifting the entire trailer wheels off the ground! Now we have to use it in the manual settings. I mean it works great, nice and solid, but it was a real convenience just to hit two buttons and let it do its thing. I tried turning it off, hit the tiny reset button but still ugh! Anyone else run into this problem? and what was the solution?

Hope you find your answer for this anomaly, I'll be following this one.

You did unknowingly answer my question I had about being able to use the leveling system to assist you in changing a flat tire.

Iíve read that you need to get reasonably level, 1.5 degrees, before auto level. Sounds like you also need to re-zero the system

We have the same unit. Love that little trailer. We have the 2021 model.
If resetting doesn't work, there is a process to re-calibrate. Let me see if I can find it.

EDIT: Found it. Here's the link. See page 14

I have read that autoleveres can and often do lift the wheels.

My auto levelers have had my wheels off the ground on very uneven ground, however the manual says to avoid this. I never considered using them to change a tire until now.

Does it hurt the frame, jacks or anything to have the wheels off the ground??

A couple of suggestions. Put one of those big levels that you can see in the rearview mirror on the front of your camper. I can usually get pretty level just jockeying around the site, use blocks if needed to get close. After you unhook, eyeball level fore and aft with your front jacks. Use as much blocking under the rear jacks as you can. The Anderson blocks work great. Hit auto-level and and let the jacks fine tune everything.

I'll call Lippert about this and see exactly what they say regarding using it to change a flat tire. Better yet raising the tires off the ground putting jack-stands beneath the frame and servicing your bearings or brakes.
Wouldn't that be nice if you could do that!

Had the same issue until I reset the 0 point for level. Find a level spot (using a level) with jacks up. Find the 0 reset in settings.

I also got the red buckets to go under the legs. Make sure nobody is moving inside. That’s all I got lol....it’s a fussy little beech. If you get 3 of 4 times you are doing well.

OK ...I said I would report soon. 3 weeks later (ahem) I did the reset! and success! I did the manual level, the best I could with the feet then used a 24" bubble level to get it just right. And the screen was showing it was about a half degree off so it was close anyway. Hit the top bar on the screen 5 times where it says "Leveler" and followed the prompts. Thanks to the help of my DW who found those instructions on LCI's website!! The screen reports it is re-zeroed and then pressed enter. Turned off the screen and went to the panel is the storage hold and did the auto-retract. I re-adjusted the hitch jack to make the camper level front to back just like you would after backing into your campsite. Then hit auto-level and watched the magic happen! Front jacks went down, hitch jack came up, then the rear jacks went down, the computer did two small adjustments and DONE! Just like when we first bought it. If this has happened to you and you're trying to find the zero function, message me and I will try to help you. TY all especially rragpaoa, MtCamper, BajaWinters

You need to reset zero point, Lippert speak for level. If that does not fix it PM and I can walk you through what I learned trouble shooting a system that had quit. I was able to fix it and have not had a problem since.
