If the're the sames ones that are on my coach (Atwood) so far so good. Just put it in park ,set the e-brake, press the on button then push auto then just wait till it stops. Does take a little longer than the hwh jacks we had on our other coach and there powered up so that takes a little longer also but overall quite happy with them. I think i read that Tiffin found less warranty issues with the Atwood electric

We have seen less problems than with hydraulic systems. At first I was not convienced they could handle the weight but I have been happily suprised that they do well.

Both the HWH hydraulic and the Atwood electric stabilizers are both good systems. We had the HWH on our 2004 and had no problems with them but the Atwoods are now standard on the 40' Bus with HWH optional. Many Phaeton and Bus owners have had good success with the Atwoods so it's tough to justify upgrading to the HWH for the extra dollars. THere are exceptions and every now and then someone has a problem but it seems equally divided between Atwood and HWH so neither seems to have an advantage.

However, the Atwoods aren't rated as high as the HWH. You just can't beat hydraulics for lifting capacity. So, if you are looking at a 42' Allegro Bus it will come standard with HWH because the Atwoods won't lift the extra 10,000 lbs.
