It always amazes me why so many people are afraid to use things in the RV as designed.

Afraid to use the retract all button because you thought it was not advisable to retract the jacks all the way? Or afraid to extend the jacks all the way?

Sorry. I just don’t get it.

I never use the "retract all" button when I'm ready to pull out because I thought it wasn't advisable to pull the jacks all the way up. I always stand there like a dumbass holding the button, which probably causes more problems.


I use the retract rear to lift the back jacks while I am doing other thenge then readjust the front. unless I just happened to be on the right direction of sloap where I can use the return to hitch level setting. that one auto retracts the rear jacks and then sets the front to the hight you unhooked from. then when I am done my tug test I auto retract front while I pick up my pads.

well extending them all the way does seam to cause a issue, maybe thats only in auto level mode?
