Thankful for my air leveling!

There are two active threads on here right now about trouble with leveling jacks and it seems there is at least one active most all the time. Sure makes me glad my coach has air leveling only!

How does the air leveling system stabilize the coach, or does it? Even my Endeavor doesn't move around a lot when the jacks aren't down, but I'm just curious.

We notice a small amount of movement, but no more than we were accustomed to with our 5er which had stabilizers. After the air bags adjust the "house" to level it's pretty solid!

After having both systems, I'd never go back to jacks, even with a little wiggle in the coach

I have both air and hydraulic leveling in my coach (both HWH). The air leveling is very fast but there is a bit more movement in the coach compared to the hydraulic leveling. If we're staying in a location for more than one night we'll use hydraulic for the extra stability but I'm very glad I have both.

Some of the nicer coaches have air and hydraulic leveling. I don't have it, but I think they use air when staying just one night (or in WalMart) and don't want to lower the jacks.

I'd love to have air leveling for quick overnights, etc., but when I looked into adding it, it became too expensive -- and I was told that HWH doesn't sell kits to do so; that they only add it at the factory.
