Auto Leveler Problem

Postby Nelix6030 » Sun May 03, 2009 1:39 pm

I have one of subtechs original Autolevelers and I seem to have a problem. On a level surface it seems to be way off, I have to tilt it pretty dramatically to get to that happy middle area where the servo wil travel in both directions with a tilt. Is there anything I can do, or is the little giro just messed up?

Kyle -

It sounds like you have either -2 or -3. These used a liquid level sensor and I recall that I had a bad batch of them a bunch of years ago. I happen to have a few (very few) sensors left so if you want, send it to me and I'll replace it for you.

PM me for address.

Funny thing about the unit

I also had one that did the same thing. But what I found out was that it worked perfectly upside. By accident, it tipped over while I was working one it and that's when I noticed that it worked. I replaced the sensor from and old one that had been damaged. But if you place it upside down and run your sub inverted, your problem will be solved. :lol:
