Just prior to pressing the”AUTO” leveling feature, you have disconnected your 5er from the tow vehicle. So, if the left to right is way off kilter, you should place pads under the low side so your piston doesn't” run out of travel. I always try and place enough pads under to match the piston travel of the high side.

Now, I’ve not seen any mention of leveling front to back. You could have similar conditions like the left-right direction. If the site has an incline, you may have problems getting level. Once I could not get level f-b no matter what I put under the pistons. After battling the issue for a while, I had to reconnect trailer to truck and place boards under my trailer tires and then go thru the whole leveling process again, it was a pain. My problem may have been how much I extended my front legs prior to disconnecting from truck which then caused my front pistons to ran out of travel. I did learn lesson here.

After 2 years of use I find what works best fr me on all sites is to put a stack of lego blocks under each leg and the 6 point system. The front level shows side to side and each make = about an inch. RT side 2" low it gets 2 extra legos, say 5 on each rt & 3 on all left. Hit auto level and sit back. Keep in mind the less leg extension the less wobble walking inside, don't be afraid to use them. I carry 4 sets, that's 40 blocks, and us almost all at every site..
