Truly sad you are sent away not knowing how to hitch and unhitch you’re RV.

I am sure there are good YouTube videos that match your system.

Dealership showed me how to manually raise and lower the legs, but did not explain some of the automated menu items.

In defense of the dealership, we spent almost 45 minutes straightening out the cable/satellite hookups. Factory had miswired it, and it was only because I didn't understand the labels or their explanation, they started tracing wires.

Ours is the Black Control unit just like Ford Truck Guy and he is 100% correct.

I use the manual mode on mine exclusively as I don't like how the front of the RV drops so much with the heavy pin weight i have in the Auto Mode.

Here's the critical part if you haven't already found it:

Hitch Recognition
1. Turn on the touch pad.
2. Push the “UP” arrow (Fig. 5A) to scroll to “Auto Reconnect” option on LCD screen.
3. Push "ENTER" (Fig. 5B). The rear jacks and middle jacks (if equipped) will retract first, then the front jacks will extend to raise the trailer to the height where the auto level sequence was started.


Of course like a lot of things with our trailers, nothing is perfect. You may have to tweak the height a little bit manually to match your hitch.

One other thing is to properly calibrate "Level" to your system. If you find yourself at a level or nearly level campsite, take time to calibrate the level.
I place a carpenters level on the countertop and floor to get a reference.

You may have to manually tweak the legs to get it level if the previous Auto Level setting is wrong. Just remember not to get your wheels above the parking surface when you level the trailer.

it only works under a spicif situation also. I believe your front end has to drop first once you push auto level, then if you hit the two outside arrows it will go back. unfortunuatly it rarly works for me as it always starts off the wrong way. I wish they would have a seperat button to actualy set the hitch hight instead of relying on which way the frong jacks move first.
