levelers question

Please explain to me "manual levelers" operated from inside the rv; "motorhome levelers" used in advertisements for mhs and are hydraulic levelers and hydraulic stablizers the same thing? Which would be the cheapest for an after market addition? This old lady will appreciate all the information you can give.

Leveling can be done a few different ways, cheapest to most expensive.

- jacks that you physically place under the RV and crank up/down via turning a handle. Can so be blocks of wood that you place under the tires.

- jacks that are fixed to the RV and powered up/down by either hydraulics or electric. Operated by push buttons inside the RV, while you watch a level placed somewhere in the RV to determine which button/jack to adjust.

- jacks that fixed to the RV as above, only rather than push buttons you press while watching a level, you just push one button and it does all the leveling automatically for you.
