Bullseye Electric leveling system

Bullseye promotes this product and dealers sell it but no one knows how to connect a 19v electric system to a 12v RV system. Instructions simply state connect to battery with a 60 amp breaker. The battery is 12v. Does anyone know how to install a 19v to a 12v?

I believe there is a little confusion - the system is described as a 12V system, not 19V. What is needed, is a 60 amp fuse (not breaker), and connections to the 12VDC batteries.

This link describes the system:

If in doubt, contact them directly and ask:

877.753.0102

Hope that helps!

No. The system is 19v system. Jacks are 19" at 9k lbs each jack and the literature included specifically states 19v system. Bullseye tech specs simply state connect to battery. That does not work. Question? Can a 19v system draw enough power from a 12v RV system? If not, then my dilema remains. How do I connect a 19v electric leveling system to a 12v RV system?

NO you cannot connect a 19v system to a 12v system without a booster. I am not sure you will find one but contact the manufacture of Bullseye

As they have sold 1,000's of leveler systems it would seem a certainty that all have been installed, professionally.

I got their phone number of this thread today and spoke with a sales representative who was both courteous and informative. I didn't ask about your situation but about their products in general.

They published their phone number in every piece of literature I have read.

They make a 19" lift model, looks to be 12v but if 19v a very small transformer could step up or down the voltage I'm certain.

I think he is getting confused by the part number they use. (9k-19V) I can only guess that it refers to the 9 thousand capacity and the 19" vertical lift. Nowhere in the install or owners manual does it say that it is 19 volts.

Can you provide a technical reference where Bullseye states it's a 19V system? I've been in electronics for about 5 decades, and never heard of a 19V battery. I'm always ready to learn something new...

Many thanks to all who responded and provided sound advice. When working with electricity I was always under the impression that V meant Volts, i.e., 19v is 19 Volts. With Bullseye, 19v means 19 vertical. Go figure. Thanks again....
