I now always level my coach manually. I found that using the automatic feature generally raised the coach more than needed.

X2. It is even easier to get level... But I will use the auto level when I am on a concer at pad that is very level.

Me too. Manual works better and is easy enough.

I have a 37dt challenger as well and experienced the same problem. Bent and replaced three brackets on passenger side. Use manual only. CW said I was doing it wrong and warranty did not cover

CW is wrong. What did they say you were doing wrong? There is nothing is the warranty saying you have to level using either the manual nor the auto level... I've never heard such hogwash. I'd make them prove that.

When it happened to me, I didn't even bother calling Thor about the warranty because I figured that's what they would say. Anyway, I ordered the bracket straight from Lippert for about $49. In the long run it was far cheaper than driving the MH 95 miles from Yucca Valley to Giant RV in Murrieta, Ca, then most likely leaving it there, and drive back to get it just for warranty work if they even approved it.

l ippert jacks
 
CW service didn't specify what I was doing wrong and l told him he didn't know what he was talking about. I took pictures of brackets and sent to Thor. They run a loom of wire along the frame and then attached the brackets. The brackets are only bolted with four bolts instead of the six that are required which makes the brackets weak. They should have mounted brackets first so they would be fully supported by the frame.

WE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH OUR "NEW" 2013 kt KT but our dealer fixed it by routing the rear drain to the rear of the unit and up inside the rear cap. He also put a shutoff on the front drain. I normally open the valve on the front drain when filling the tank so I can see the water come out when the tank is full, then I shut the valve off. If I forget to open the valve, water just comes out the rear line instead when the tank is full. Works great for us.
