System
Failure to act in accordance with the following may result in death or serious injury.
The use of the Ground Control 2.0 to support the unit for any reason other than that which it is intended is
prohibited by Lippert's limited warranty. The Lippert Ground Control 2.0 is designed as a "leveling" system
only and should not be used to provide service for any reason under the coach such as changing tires or
servicing the leveling system.
Lippert Components Inc. recommends that a trained professional be employed to change the tire on the
unit. Any attempts to change tires or perform other service while unit is supported by the Ground Control
2.0 could result in death, serious injury or damage to the 5th Wheel.
NOTES:
• Be sure to park the unit on solid, level ground.
• Clear all jack landing locations of debris and obstructions. Locations should also be free of
depressions.
• When parking the unit on extremely soft surfaces, utilize load distribution pads under each jack.
• People and pets should be clear of unit while operating leveling system.
• Never lift the unit completely off the ground. Lifting the unit so the wheels are not touching the
ground will create an unstable and unsafe condition.
Prior to Operation
The leveling system shall only be operated under the following conditions:
1.
The unit is parked on a reasonably level surface.
2.
Be sure all persons, pets and property are clear of the coach while Lippert Ground Control 2.0 is in
operation.
3.
Make sure battery(ies) are fully charged and load test at 12+VDC.
4.
Drop inner leg of both landing gear jacks 4-5 inches.
Basic Jack Operation
1.
Front Landing gear jacks.
2.
Rear leveling jacks.
Landing Gear jacks can be operated any time the system is “ON” but NOT in the “AUTO MODE.” By pushing
the “FRONT” button, both front or landing gear jacks can be extended. By pushing either the “LEFT” or
“RIGHT” button, the individual front jacks can be extended. If the touch panel is put in the “RETRACT” mode,
indicated by the orange illuminated LED next to the “RETRACT” button, the front jacks can be retracted
together by pushing the “FRONT” button or individually by pressing either the “LEFT” or “RIGHT” button.
The rear jacks can only be operated when the touch panel is in the “MANUAL MODE.” Once system is in
“MANUAL MODE,” pressing the “REAR” button will extend both rear jacks at the same time. To operate
individual rear jacks, press the “LEFT” or “RIGHT” button first, depending on what is needed at the time, then
press the “REAR” button and hold both at the same time.

Preventative Maintenance Procedures
1.
Remove dirt and road debris from jacks (and stabilizer struts if equipped) as needed.
2.
If jacks are down for extended periods, it is recommended to spray exposed leveling jack tubes with
a spray lubricant every 3 months for protection. If your coach is located in a salty environment, it is
recommended to spray the rods every month.
Your coach should be supported at both front and rear axles with jack stands before working
underneath. Failure to do so may result in death or serious injury.
