For those that don't live close to HWH and may be interested, i just had the HWH system installed in our 2011 Jayco 31FS. i had the local dealer install them. they did a great job including welding the mount brackets to the frame, sealing and painting all the holes and installation points, and securing the wires and hoses. Total cost was $4500. It is the kickdown model and when stowed does not go below the existing low points on the rig so no additional ground clearance issues. i opted for the manual system with the touch pad mounted on the outboard drivers seat base. this allows me to look inderneath while i lower the jacks. i can't believe the difference it makes in stability as well. i was also impressed with the wealth of information available on the HWH website.

I had a automatic Big Foot System installed on a Gulfstream Conquest, at the factory in Michigan, several years ago. At that time they were quite a bit cheaper than HWH. The had a plug in for the night and I was done by 11am the next day. I especially liked the big pads on the bottom of the Jacks. I used them for two years and then got a class A. They increased the trade value of my coach by almost the cost of the system.

I work at a dealership and I installed the HWH on a 2011 aspect. took about 14 hours. The most difficult part for me was welding the brackets to the frame. Did it with a mig. Customer was real pleased. The instructions furnished by HWH were very well written, I think anyone with a basic mechanical knowledge could install them.

Installed hwh system on 30' Hurricane, you have to buy through a dealer hwh will not sell direct. I went through a dealer in lake havasu az. you don't have to know much about hydraulics, you bolt the jacks on, bolt the control box in hook up the hoses and wires between the two then adjust the level. The instructions are available on line at hwh, all the wiring is plug and go, you can do it. It cost me around $4000. plus freight.

Actually I went to HWH and purchased direct (last May) and had them installed at the same time. The guys at HWH were very helpful and got the job done an hour earlier than promised. They have a couple of spots to hook up (power only) for the night if you need. Love my HWH system.
