I'm full-time since Summer '18 in a 2018 Heartland Fuel 322, 35' toyhauler 5th wheel and I almost never can get the leveling system to work. The trailer has high clearance and my truck is a 2WD Dodge 2500 that sits low but level (not overweight) when towing, making the trailer ride a little nose down. If my parking spot is at all sloped down in the front, the landing gear have to travel a long way to get to level, and because my truck is not huge, I don't have much room to drop the extensions before disconnecting from the truck. I have an LCI Ground Control 3.0 6-point system, and I use blocks and a few inches of extension to get within an inch or less of the bottom of the landing gear. I can't extend the landing gear very far to disconnect the truck, but then I have to go a really long way to get the front up to level. When I hit auto level, I get jack fault on all 6 jacks, which can only be cleared by retracting all jacks fully and starting over (with the same end result). I can always get the trailer level in manual mode, but there is no way to manually extend the center stabilizers, between that and the fully extended landing gear I have a ton of movement. Also, I just developed a crease in the vinyl floor from one side to the other near the mid-point of the trailer making me wonder if it is sagging from sitting with the majority of the weight on each end. I plan to take it in to the shop, but that is tough when you are a full-timer. Any advice or suggestions greatly appreciated!
