CONNECTING TO THE TOW VEHICLE
THE RV BRAKE SYSTEM IS DESIGNED AND RATED FOR THE GVWR OF THE RV, NOT THE GCWR OF THE TOW VEHICLE.
WHEN POSSIBLE, ENSURE THAT YOUR HOLDING TANKS ARE EMPTY DURING TRAVEL. FULL HOLDING TANKS CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT THE TOWING OF THE RV.
ALWAYS MAKE SURE THE PROPANE IS OFF WHEN TOWING THE RV.
If equipped with a factory hitch receiver, you can tow an additional small trailer behind your RV (if wiring is not included it must be added if a trailer will be towed), such as a boat. Do not use a draw bar longer than 10 inches. The maximum length of the draw bar is from the center of the fastening pin to the center of the ball. The maximum trailer tow rating of the hitch receiver is 3,000 lbs. with a maximum hitch weight of 300 lbs.
The receiver can also be used for a storage rack, bike rack or similar. The cargo weight carrying capacity includes the weight of the cargo carrier and should never exceed 300 lbs. Laws around double towing and overall towing length vary depending on where you live. Consult the appropriate authority for local towing resections in your area.
DO NOT EXCEED THE MAXIMUM LOAD OR HITCH WEIGHT RATING OF ANY HITCH KIT. EXCEEDING MAXIMUM LOAD OR WEIGHT RATINGS CAN CREATE A HAZARDOUS CONDITION THAT MAY RESULT IN POSSIBLE DEATH, SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR SEVER PRODUCT AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, INCLUDING VOIDING OF THE WARRANTY.
ELECTRIC LEVELING SYSTEM
Once you get where you are going, you will need to level your RV. Before you operate the leveling system, make sure that the RV is parked on a level surface and not attached to the tow vehicle.
NOTE: Never level the RV with anyone inside.
WE RECOMMEND THAT A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL CHANGE THE TIRES ON YOUR RV. THE RV SHOULD ALWAYS BE PROPERLY SUPPORTED WITH JACK STANDS. ATTEMPTS TO CHANGE TIRES OR PERFORM OTHER SERVICE WORK BY THE LEVELING SYSTEM ONLY COULD RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY.

Leveling System Touch Pad
Moving parts can pinch, crush, or cut. Keep clear and use caution.
Landing gear (front jacks) can be operated any time the system is “ON.” By pushing the “FRONT” button (Fig. 1G), both front jacks can be extended. By pushing either the “FRONT” and “LEFT” (Fig. 1H) or “FRONT” and “RIGHT” (Fig. 1I) buttons, the individual front jacks can be extended. If the touchpad is put in the retract mode, indicated by the orange illuminated LED next to the “RETRACT” button (Fig. 1D), the front jacks can be retracted together by pushing the “FRONT” button (Fig. 1G) or individually by pressing “LEFT” (Fig. 1H) or “RIGHT” (Fig. 1I) buttons, while simultaneously pressing the “FRONT” button (Fig. 1G).
Middle jacks, if equipped, cannot be extended, or retracted in standard mode or manual mode. Middle jacks can only be operated in the special jack code error mode. In order to operate the middle jacks press the “LEFT” (Fig. 1H) and “RIGHT” (FIG. 1I) buttons simultaneously.
The rear jacks can only be extended when the touch pad is in manual mode. Once the system is in manual mode, pressing the “REAR” button (Fig. 1J) will extend both rear jacks at the same time. To extend individual rear jacks, press the “LEFT” (Fig. 1H) or “RIGHT” (Fig. 1I) buttons while simultaneously pressing the “REAR” button (Fig. 1J), depending on which jack needs to be operated. If the touch pad is put in the retract mode, indicated by the orange illuminated LED next to the “RETRACT” button (Fig. 1D), the rear jacks can be retracted together by pushing the “REAR” button (Fig. 1J) or individually by pressing either the “LEFT” (Fig. 1H) or “RIGHT” (Fig. 1I) buttons, while simultaneously pressing the “REAR” button (Fig. 1J).
If the rear jacks will not operate individually using the method described above but operate properly when Auto Level is performed, the Twist Prevention Protection system has locked out the operation to prevent damage to the frame of the trailer.
Be sure to park the trailer on solid and level ground. Prior to operation, clear all jack landing locations of debris and obstructions. The locations should also be free of surface depressions and moisture. When parking the trailer on extremely soft surfaces, utilize load distribution pads under each jack.
People and pets should be clear of the trailer while the leveling system is operated. Never lift the trailer completely off the ground. Lifting the trailer so the wheels are not touching the ground will create an unstable and unsafe condition.
Unhitching From a Tow Vehicle
Note: Prior to unhitching from the tow vehicle, ensure the trailer is parked on a level surface, and be sure to chock the tires of the trailer.
- Extend the inner legs of both landing gear (front jacks) to within 4-5″ of the ground by pulling on the quick-release pins.
- Push “ON/OFF” (Fig. 1K). LCD Screen will light up and display “READY JACKS: UP” (Fig. 2A).
- Push the “UP” arrow (Fig. 1A) to scroll to the “Drop Front Jacks” option on the LCD screen.
- Red indicator lights (Fig. 2B) may come on, indicating the current disposition of the trailer. In this case, the front and right sides of the trailer are low.
- Push “ENTER” (Fig. 1C). Both front jacks will go to the ground and stop.
- Push the “FRONT” button (Fig. 1G) extending the front jacks to a sufficient height, which raises the front of the trailer off of the tow vehicle’s fifth wheel hitch plate.
- Pull tow vehicle away and park at a safe distance.
- After unhitching from tow vehicle and parking the vehicle at a safe distance away from the trailer, press the “ON/OFF” button (Fig. 1K) and then press “AUTO LEVEL” (Fig. 1F).
Note: Once the automatic leveling cycle has been started, it is important that there is no movement in the trailer until the trailer has completed the leveling process. Failure to remain still during the leveling cycle could have an effect on the performance of the leveling system.
Note: In order for the hitch recognition feature to function, the auto level sequence must be started with the front of the trailer above level.
Auto Level Sequence
- When the Auto Level Sequence begins, the front of the trailer will lower slightly to a point below level.
- Rear jacks will be grounded.
- A side-to-side leveling sequence occurs.
Note: At this point on the 6-point system, the 2 middle jacks are grounded to stabilize the trailer. These 2 jacks do not level the trailer.
- Each jack will perform a final grounding touch.
- LCD will read “AUTO LEVEL SUCCESS” (Fig. 3).
- LCD will then read “READY Jacks: Down” (Fig. 4A), and the green LED at the center of the 4 jack buttons will be illuminated (Fig. 4B).
Note: If the AUTO LEVEL sequence does not perform as described, place the system in manual mode and test that the jacks operate correctly by pushing their coordinating buttons on the touch pad; i.e., the “FRONT” button operates only the front jacks, etc.
- Turn on the touch pad.
- Push the “UP” arrow (Fig. 5A) to scroll to “Auto Reconnect” option on LCD screen.
- 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. Note: If the auto level sequence was started with the front of the trailer in a below-level condition, the Hitch Recognition will not function, and the LCD will display “Feature Disabled.” In order for the Hitch Recognition feature to function, the auto level sequence must be started with the front of the trailer above level.
- Once jacks are retracted, pull the pin, and retract the inner legs of the landing gear (front jacks).Make sure the pin latches again when complete.
- For optimum performance, the system requires full battery current and voltage. The battery must be maintained at full capacity.
- Check the terminals and other connections at the battery, the controller, and the jacks for corrosion, and loose or damaged connections.
- Remove dirt and road debris from jacks as needed.
- If jacks are down for extended periods, it is recommended to spray exposed leveling jack rods with a silicone lubricant every three months for protection. If the trailer is located in a salty environment, it is recommended to spray the rods every 4-6 weeks.
Alliance RV fifth wheels are equipped with safety systems that work together to help protect the occupants in the event of an emergency. Please read and fully understand all safety functions before using your new RV.
