LCI 4 point level system

We just picked up our new 5th wheel yesterday. 8298KS Rockwood Signature. It came with a LCI 4 point level system , auto level system . I can find no manual for the system . It came with no manual in the unit and I can not find the right one on line. I really would like to know the procedure for manual control of the legs. Seems I can control the front right or left leg , but not the back legs'. I can make the back / rear legs work as a pair , but not just one leg at a time. While I know the auto level will work it may not always work in some sites. It has to be level to a certain point already or the auto level will not work.
So knowing how to level it manually is a must to me. Any help or links to a current 4 point system manual would be nice.

Personally, I would be sitting in the dealers office, waiting on my salesman. He would either get me a manual or have someone come and show me how to use it. Also, have you tried contacting the factory?

Go to Lipperts web site They are the manufacturers and will be able to answer your questions . Don’t waste time with the dealers .

You should have the ground control 3 system. There should be a control panel in the pass through storage or on the app. On the control pad or app you have to go into manual level mode and you can control each jack.

Thank you. The app is in line with what I was looking for and seems to explain what I want to do.

OK i have the information on how to operate the system manually. Seems like the system can't adjust just one leg at a time. It can adjust left side front and back, right side front and back, and both legs front or back together. Seems there is just no way to control just one leg at a time. You would think with all that it can do something as simple as one leg control would have been a option, BUT NOOOooo.

LOL oh well maybe they will get smart in the future and make it so.
Thanks for all the replies to my question.

On my system which is electric you can choose to drop front legs and they adjust to different terrain automatically. The you raise front to disconnect from hitch. After discomnection push auto level and watch it do its thing!
One more item. I drop the inside legs and rear inside legs some before starting the the sequence above.
Good luck.

Sounds like you anticipate being in some rather unlevel sites and want to be able to manually handle the leveling and stabilizing. I would strongly suggest that you get some boards to help that process. First some long ones to drive on the low side tires on to get the lateral side closer to level, and also some blocks/pads to go under each of the leveling jacks to reduce the amount of jack extension required to get level regardless of whether it manual or automatic leveling. Yes you found the limitations of the leveling system in that jacks work in pairs, not individually. On a 6 point it's similar but there middle ones work either by side or rear.

On my Ground Control 3.0 system you can extend one leg by holding the side arrow and then then the rear or front arrow in manual mode. E.g. to extend just the left rear you hold left and rear at the same time.

First thing to do is to get back to the dealer and demand the manuals for the RV. They probably lost them.

While I have not found that tip in the instructions I will try it later today. Going from a travel trailer to a 5th wheel is not all that great a change for us. We get it all , but the auto level system. We never had it on any of our campers before now.
