Bullseye Leveling System FYI

I grew tired of hydraulic leaks and constant maintenance so I decided to install electric levelers. The idea seemed novel at the time, clean, sturdy levelers and electrical components that appeared to be flawless. I was wrong!!! The electrical components are not up to par. Upon installation, the computer module malfunctioned and needed to be replaced. The leveling memory function had to be reset at every use. Finally, it stopped working. I checked voltage readings and all was good so I removed the Bullseye touchpad control. The wires on the harness were loose and not crimped. This explains the constant resetting. However, the intermittent contact with loose wire on the harness caused, in my unqualified opinion, the touchpad to short circuit The harness was replaced by bullseye, but have been silent on the touchpad. A touchpad in the open market is over $500. Quite a steep price for a unit that is less than two years old. Lesson learned....if it is leaking, fix it. If it is working.., well you know the rest...

Been camping for over 33 years now. Never had auto levelers. Used 2x6 boards. Now use lego type blocks. almost 80 % of campgrounds are level enough for fridge, and shower/sinks to drain. I would rather use that money on seeing this wonderfull United States of America. But if you like the convenience, then you will have to spend the money.

When I had my 5th wheel. I read an article on here and used a piece of 10 inch flat hose to make an air bag. I just laid it flat on the ground drove the wheels on it then aired it up until unit was level. Worked very good and was easier than the blocks you mention. When I bought a motor home I had auto leveling. You could never get me to have another unit that did not auto level.

Driving onto an air "bladder', then inflating it, is a great idea, IF you have a compressor with you. AND, auto levelers are the best thing since sliced bread, but if you don't need your bread sliced, then it is just a very expensive acesserory. I f I were buying a rig, and it did not have levelers, that would not break the deal. It depends on the type of campground you intend to park, me, I have not been to many that were not level.
