When we use the auto level feature on our 5er everything seems to work as designed, however when the leveling is complete the trailer is not quite level. It is just off a little bit when checked with an actual 4' level. Is there a way to adjust the auto level operation? Can most anyone do this type of adjustment or should I just take it to the dealer? I usually do my own maintenance, but I'm unfamiliar with this system.

Yes your level point can be adjusted very easily.

Look in your lippert manual. Sorry I don't have mine handy.

From the manual:

Zero Point Calibration The “Zero Point” is the programmed point that the unit will return to each time the Auto Level feature is used. The “Zero Point” must be programmed prior to using the Auto Level feature to ensure the proper operation of the system. NOTE: Prior to starting this procedure, double check all connections on the controller, jacks, and touch pad.

1. Manually run the jacks to level the unit. This is best achieved by placing a level in the center of the unit and leveling it both front to back and then side to side. (See “Basic Jack Operation” for instructions on how to manually operate the system).

2. Once the unit is level, turn off the touch pad.

3. With the touch pad off, press and release the “FRONT” button (Fig. 1G) ten (10) times and then press and release the “REAR” button (Fig. 1J) ten (10) times.

4. The touch pad will flash and beep and the display will read “ZERO POINT CALIBRATION ENTER to set, Power to Exit” (Fig. 5).

5. To set the current position as the zero point, press the “ENTER” button (Fig. 1C).


6. LCD display will read “Zero Point stability check” (Fig. 6).


7. LCD display will read “Zero point set successfully” once process is complete (Fig. 7).


8. The system will set this point as its level state and the touch pad will turn off.

Edit:
Here's a link to some helpful YouTube videos. After working with my Lippert 6 point level system, I still can't do it right. I have check the manual and these videos all the time! Duh! Click here.

Some of these auto levelers have the level way off. I was auto leveling a bumper pull at one of our shows and the trailer was tilted up and the wheels were off the ground like it was taking off. I don't auto level unknown trailers any more, lol.

Here's one more for you Klr650goldWing: Link to the Lippert manual that covers EVERYTHING Lippet has. It's a PDF, so down-load on your computer and save it. It's absolutely great help, having everything in one document.

We had to adjust ours. Took about 10 minutes total using the app and a 4' level. I've checked it while on this 7 stop trip and bubble good.

A side note, at the first stop, Charleston SC, the right side jacks would not extend. Got an error code on the app called lippert who seemed as puzzled as me. 2 days later, I was in the front hatch and just happened to see a wire hanging down from one of the valves. Hooked up the wire and cleared the code, back in business.

All you have to do is set zero point, what Lippert calls level. It's a simple process, just read the instruction. I have had mine 2.5 years and the only issue is it has forgot zero for some reason.

Read the manual and manually level the rig using a 4 foot long carpenters level. Then reset the level point.

If you want it actually LEVEL place a laser level at one end shooting beam under RV. Adjust RV so the four corners of the frame are parallel to the laser beam. Now reset level.
