Automatic leveling System and electric coiler for 50 amp cord

Can you add an automatic leveling system as an after market item?
Has anyone here done it?

Also has anyone installed an after market electric cord reel for a 50amp cord?

Thank you,

As to the leveling, absolutely. Level up from Lippert can be done at the factory or at an authorized dealer. Bigfoot is another system that can be added aftermarket. I would have already had it done if I had somewhere close to get it done. Maybe next year we will make a vacation out of a trip to Lippert. They can install level up in a day so not too much time to wait...

Auto level after market

Hello, I am new to this site and just wanted to say hello and tell you that adding a auto leveling system to your rig is the best thing you can do. I had back surgery in Florida while visiting my mother and as always I spend too much money there and bought a new used 2013 Bighorn without the levelers. On the way home I stopped in Mesa, AZ and had the Lippert levelers installed and what a big difference it has made, no blocks or bending down to make the rig level, just one button leveling!

Also use a hand crank manual cord storage for our 50amp shore cord.
