Big Foot Levelers Design Flaw
I just bought a 2001 32" Georgie Boy Pursuit that came with Big foot Levelers. I found out the hard way that there is no off switch to the levelers. Electronics yes.
When you activate a leveler, you energize a solenoid that allows power to go to the hydraulic pump. If the solenoid sticks on, you cannot turn off the pump because there is no switch in the main power line, just to the solenoid. If this happens when you are extending them, you teeter on one leveler till the whole thing bends. Basic design and costly flaw.
I have no idea when or if they ever fixed this flaw. I fixed it by putting a Ford starter solenoid inline from the battery cable to the 120 amp breaker. thus when the leveler starts to run away, I turn off the solenoid and kill the power.
Why not fix the solenoid, I have, but like most RV, they were installed as the rig was being built with no thought as to how to ever remove them for maintenance. It cost me $800 to fix the leveler that teetered, and then bent the frame. I currently have one with a sticking solenoid and it is easier to use the Ford solenoid than replace the Big Foot solenoid due to the master builders who installed it before the floor was put down.
Lastly, no matter what you order from Big Foot, the minimum shipping is $18.
This is just a heads up to older big foot Levelers owners.
Lastly, to end on a positive note. The Big Foot levers will raise the wheels off the ground and keep them that way for weeks. Good product, except for the design flaw.
