Yes we have had sometimes it does and don't. There are "one way" or "directional" check valves in the system that are to prevent this. The one that could be at fault, is in the motor or manifold. Recommended 2-3 years you need to change out old hydraulic fluid. The system has no filter in the system. Easy to do, just pump out old oil an put in new. With all slides IN, landing UP, an hooked up to truck. Call Lippert they will tell you who is most competent in the repair skill near you for this system. Aluminium gets hyd. oil dirty an this is why you need to change it out every now an then.

Thinking of two other things that can cause this, a leak in the line or leak internal in the system and the other would be air in the system. I also think the system self bleeds itself, I could be wrong but it is a closed system and I can't think why it wouldn't. Other words, work the landing gear up & down serval times hooked to truck and slide outs as well.

Our 6 point hydraulic system works perfectly on our 13 3402. Read the manual understand the limitations in terms of leveling. Know the specs front to back and side to side. The RV must be comparatively level before starting the auto level process. The system will not level under severe unlevel conditions.

Not for sure what the definition of "comparatively level" is, but I would say that it can be off quite a bit, and still auto level.

This was our campsite last week. We were about 6" side to side on unlevel, and didn't have any issues with autolevel at all...
