Leveling jacks

My RV has jacks that work individually. Can they be converted to where I press one button and it levels

Knowing your RV type and type of jacks you have will allow others to offer more specific assistance.

Sorry, I thought that was a pretty general question. Can it be done with some and not with others? My RV is an International " Dolphin" 2006 but I have no idea of brand the jacks are. Just bought it and they
Are original equipment.

Nope, you need to be more specific, your question is too general. Brand and model of the jack system will be needed.

Thanks, I'll look at them for brand.

Here's something I found on Dolphin, but strangely, it says nothing about jacks.

ok, heres the problem. with manually operated jacks, there is not much in the way of computerized control. its just press a button, and the jacks respond. the auto leveling requires a computer to operate the leveling system.
you can do it, but it will cost as much as replacing the current manual system.
the control box, touch pad, pressure switches, and harness all have to be replaced.
if you do it, take it to the mfg to get it done. they will be way cheaper than a repair center. that should apply to any leveling system generally speaking.

Based on what azpete just said, I'd get one of these, mount it, use the manual jacks and call it good. BUT, if you do change out to automatic leveling, I'd still get one of those. They work great!
