Do I have the right forum?

First and foremost, I want to say HI to everyone! I'm new here but not to forum settings. I have a 2005 Workhorse Chassis (catering/food truck). I did a goggle search on "self leveling suspension" and one of the links brought me here. Recently I had a food truck event with "Off The Grid" and I was parked in an incline. Things inside my food truck was obviously gravitating down slope, thus my search for a self leveling suspension of sort. However after doing a seach here on this forum, I didn't find anything in regards to my 2005 Workhorse suspension. So I'm wondering if I registered to the right forum. Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Leveling systems can only do so much like a gentle slope. If you have food sliding that's probably to big of slope. They can pick the tires off the ground but rear tires could be bad ,no brakes. They make 2 basic kinds electric, and hydraulic, auto leveling(more expensive) and manual. A cheap fix would be make wooden ramps add more boards for more height.

If it was up to me I would do that, but it's not my call. My supervisor wants modern convenience (automated self leveling unit)

I don't know why one of the automated leveling systems wouldn't work on that chassis, you're dealing with the same basic platform as many motor homes.
Your boss should be prepared to spend a few dollars on a system though.

HWH after-market leveling systems

Here is a list from HWH of after market installs--check it out. Power Gear makes systems as well.

Who ever sells them would know who installs them.

This is a start--just follow the lead.
