I like the idea of auto levelers, but I am far too cheap to spend big money on that kind of thing.

On my last class C, I added scissor jacks on the corners, and while I used blocks under the wheels, I used the jacks to make fine adjustments and as stabilizers. I used a long speeder handle and sometimes a ratchet handle with a 3/4 socket.

On my current class A, (1988 Fleetwood Southwind) it clearly is a bit late to have a big system installed. I instead installed the four scissor jacks but this time with electric motors. I wired it myself, and got a leveling system for a fraction of the cost. (Just a few hundred dollars and a day of my labor)

I still drive onto blocks (I have both wood and stackable plastic) to do the basic leveling. I use the motors to drop the jacks to the ground. The motors are not strong enough to lift the motor home much, but in a pinch, I can put a handle to the jack and spin it to where I want that corner...

Thanks, JJ,

It is a 2012 Retractable hardtop with a full suspension package and an Electric SuperCharger.

I have towed 3 Miatas over 60,000 miles total.

They work GREAT for us.
