We just installed some attwood electric leveling jacks on a commercial box truck that does pressure testing of breathing apparatus, and they work great. The expense is more then scissor jacks, but it works great and convenient with the key pad.

Anybody install Bigfoot levelers to your C? How big a job was it and how do you like them?

We are looking at Bigfoot and HWH. Not sold one either yet.

I am responding to my own post.

We just had the Bigfoot (feet?) installed on the C. The local shop did the job in a day and a half. I let it sit in the driveway over night and when I tried to calibrated it to level I found one of the cylinders was leaking fluid because they did not tighten the connection enough.

I had them recheck everything to make sure all was OK before I took it home again and now it levels out fine. Turn the power on...wait a few seconds and then hit Auto and it goes to work... two cylinders at a time until it is level. Very nice! We are taking it out next week into the real world to make sure everything works before we start our travels this year.

We tried to see about the Big Foot levelers on our C, but the local "rep" hardy knew what we were talking about. Since we cold not come up with a decent shop locally, we went with the HWH and no problems.

HWH are kick down hydraulic levelers. They have 3 types for a C. Manual, semiautomatic (610 series) and fully automatic (810 series). HERE is their website.

Bigfoot Jacks! Automatic leveling in 30 seconds. If you travel a lot, it's well worth it. I set up 59 times last summer, so I think it's worth the price.

Just need to watch one thing. The levelers add some weight to the rig and most larger class C's are pretty close to the limits. The 99 Minnie Winnie DL 31A (no slides) we had tipped the scales at 13,950# loaded (chassis rated at 14,050# GVWR)for a trip, dry waste tanks, full fuel, and about 1/4 tank of fresh water. That was with the HWH leveler system installed.

I make sure of my weight and see how much the levelers will add.

Bought a brand new 2006 THOR Class A and told the factory do not installed any leverlers.
I when ahead to Tampa, FL and had the fully automatic with the 14 x 14 pads and the longest they make is the 21 inch long bad boys model. I am very pleased . I can lift the entire coach all 6 wheels off the ground and still have 8 inch clearance underneath all the tires.
here is the pic of coach

I had these on a clas A back in 93. Better than any other system out there. Even my HWH I have now.

Hope to get Big Foot on our class we once we find what we want.
