Our trailer needs to be re-leveled after sitting in our spot for 6 months. I have found a wealth of info on the system but nothing about re-leveling. Do the slides need to be in? Do I need to be in manual mode? Can I just push Auto Level? Need help

Hi Carl - Welcome to the forum.

Interesting question for your first post..

I never deploy my slides until I'm level. Running them out when the fiver isn't level puts stress on them and can make them bind up.

But you're already kind of out of level and your slides are already out. You're probably better off running the auto-level as you are instead of running the slides back in. Hopefully you're not that far out of level.

I have done a relevel a couple of times. I don't put the slides in. Just push the level button. Keep in mind that the trailer will not return to hitch height when you hit the hitch button. it will go to where it was before you did the last level. you will need to manually get the trailer to the correct height to with up.
