Dewald Manual Leveling System

I have the Dewald manual leveling system. Even following the instructions explicitly it find it very difficult to level my motorhome.

I think the side to side leveling with only the rear jacks is the issue.

Anyone else have this issue?

Has anyone modified their system so that both front and rear jacks are used for side to side leveling.

Thanks

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Sorry, I'm not familiar with that system.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

You didn't say what sort of problems you are having, but I think you are wrong about the reason. The the front jacks work together to prevent twisting the frame and/or popping out the windshield. The front jacks are cross-connected hydraulically to let the front of the coach float level as the rears raise.

Gary, thanks for the input. I have thought about your comment and re-read the instructions. I then decided to practice using the instructions in the Dewald manual.

I'm still of the opinion that the side to side adjustment would be better if both left or both right jacks could be used in unison as some systems are. I think that this system works ok as long as it is not to far our of level. An inch or two either front to back or side to side or both can be adjusted out without too much trouble. Beyond that?

I mostly boondock and need to level several inches. I think I will just use my drive on ramps to get close and use the levelers for fine tuning
