It could very well be in my head as I haven't timed it, but it seems like it goes faster when we're moving and I hit the lower button versus already parked.

If you can set it, remember it will stop lowering when you open the door. So, if you can remember to keep pushing the down button when you slow down, you are ahead of the game ... by a few seconds.
That few seconds, to avoid spousal snarky comments, is worth it.
Definitely triple thanks for the tip that you can start the lowering process before coming to a halt--as there are occasions where said spouse is in a hurry to exit and lets face it the lowering is a tad slow.

Re: Exit Mode Air Suspension Lowering: Just Learned How to Use This

Mine is set to automatically lower and when opening the door it stops as reports but once out I hear if going down again. I am now using the button before stopped and it makes a difference especially considering the rubbing the seat bolsters...

That's the way my August 15th built Overland works--ce

+1

The auto lower feature is great in theory, but it takes way too long.

I thought it was me...sometimes the back end is jacked up a couple of inches and I was thinking the leveling was malfunctioning.

If I have an earlier build, can I still get this feature??? Is there an Unconnect Update I can do??? If so, link to it??

Thanks!
