Auto Level

Does anyone have experience with the LCI auto level (electric) systems?

We are looking at the Coachmen Chapparal 360ibl with this system.

Just bought a Jayco fifth wheel with the Lippert 4 jack leveling setup. So far all is good. I especially like the hitch memory feature for hitching and unhitching.Also advise using wood or plastic blocking to limit stroke length of jacks, makes for better stability.

We bought a used 2010 DRV Mobile Suites with the none auto 6 point system. We had the LCI One Touch system added to the unit before we picked it up. The system was upgraded at the LCI service center in Goshen IN. We (I) love it. Our cost to upgrade was only about $1300 which included a new pump.

I prefer the electric/hydraulic system with the 6-point auto leveling that LCI offer. Which is an electric motor driving a hydraulic pump that supplies the pressure (force) to raise and lower the trailer legs.

Why? I do not like electric solenoid and drive motors at each leg. To many electrical components to short out do to weather and oxidation of the connectors.

If ordering a new camper I would want it I suppose. I sure don't want it now. Mine is very easy to set mine up. Individual electric jacks in front and crank down strong arm in rear. Simple and easy. The HDT doesn't go way up when unhooking. It stays level.

I didn't know they made an electric auto level system. Is it hydraulic auto level? At any rate, the auto level system is one of the best things to come along. You will like it.

We have the 4 point electric auto level system on our 2016 Grand Design Reflection 318RST. We've only used it about ten times but it works great. Just push the button and ignore it while you continue setting things up. I wouldn't have an RV without it.

We have it on our Sandpiper 360PDEK. Love it. The memory function is fantastic. Auto level works perfectly. The older you get, the more you like it. LOL

6 Point hydraulic here.. It's amazing. Takes us less than ten minutes to set up from backing in. I've only received one "Out of Stroke!" warning so far, which was cleared by hitting the level button again.
