New Leveling System

In the process of installing a new Ground Control leveling system on my 27' TT. It is a remote electric system by Rieco Titan. It appears to be very high quality and heavy duty(20,000 lb. capacity). Anyone have or had one of these?

Interesting

This is a very interesting idea. I wonder, though, how you know if your frame can handle the stresses and how you work out where to install these on the frame to avoid twisting and damaging the frame.

Here's the manufacturer's video :

It would be very nice to know how it all worked out.

Do these level side-to-side only or totally level the entire trailer?

Spent the week in a rv park in Pigeon Forge Tn., which is close to where we live. The Ground Control system worked great. After blocking the wheels, we placed my wife Ipad on the floor of the trailer using a clineometer app which is a bubble level. (1)Raised the front jacks simultaniously as the need indicated on the Ipad. (2) When level lengthwise I lowered both rear jack only enough to stabilize. (3) Level indicated right side low, so I raised the right front and right back jacks at the same time. Stepped up into a rock solid trailer and made a cup of coffee. The key is to never raise one jack indipendantly except have it meet the ground simultaniously with the others. By the way, I did not remove the rear sissor jacks for they can give me a six point system if desired.

I'll try to get some pictures. It is a really nice system and I will be putting it to use in a couple of days.

LCI. I'll pass. I don't see it any faster than my cordless on the rear and the power fronts on my 5'er. Rears are down in 5-7 secs each. Front takes 1-2 mins. Couple mins for side to side with Lynx levelers. I'll save my $2500 for something else.

It sounds like this is the same as you have on your 5'er. Power leveling. No reason to replace the Lynx with this system. Yours could be better.
