Newbie question. We were doing spring cleaning getting ready for summer use. When I used auto leveling only 3 levelers extended. If I did it manually all four would extend. My question is if the unit is level should all levelers extend or is it ok if only three extend. My wife and I disagree she thinks only the three needed will extend and I feel all four should extend. Who is correct?

all 4 will deploy. the jacks are used to stabilize the RV in addition to leveling it. there may be a way to re-sync your system. check your owner's manual or contact the mfg.

Yes, of course all the levelers should go down. Did the 3 that went down raise the RV any? There's a risk of twisting the frame of they lifted it very much.

If you'd include some details on your RV and brand of levelers, you might get a detailed answer helping you understand where the problem might be.

“My wife and I disagree she thinks only the three needed will extend...”

Even the basic manual that came with your MH should have discussed frame twist that might happen with only three jacks deploying.

Kinda depends. Monaco only uses three. Regardless, all jacks should deploy when you press, level. So, if your coach has four, then all four should deploy when you level. Providing info on your coach, make model year etc AND any info on your jacks mfg including model if you have it, will greatly enhance any of the answers you may receive.....Dennis

Let me guess; Atwood electric jacks?

Just wondering, and yes, it would be helpful if you could tell us your make, model, and what jacks you have.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

You must use all 4. If not you could bend your frame. You need proper support. It is like you standing on one leg for a long time. Not so steady...

Yes all 4 should deploy when using auto level. Since the fourth jack WILL go down in manual mode it might be a bad pressure switch at the fourth jack. Very easy to check. Also, welcome to the forum & please do add a signature so everyone can see what you have for more accurate help info.
