Often Class C rigs don't have levelers because of space and weight limits. They would reduce your carrying capacity by at least a couple hundred pounds.

The hydraulic system they are referring to in your owners manual is probably the unit controlling a slide out and usually found in an outside compartment opposite the slide. I hope this helps.

Levelers Schmevelers....my 85 Minnie Winnie has two liquid bubble levels...one on the drivers side door for front/back leveling, and one on the dash for left/right.

Good enough for me....

My wife and I have yet to put the levelers down. We came in Texas State Parks and the pads are very good shape.

Use ours about 98% of the time. Soft wet ground is about only time they are not used.

If I had them I'd use them all the time. Especially to get rid of the wobble you get when just using Lynx levelers.

That being said, all I have are Lynx Levelers. At ~4k to get BigFoot Levelers installed I'll deal w/ the wobble and the weight savings.

No levelers. Just added weight and more to fail. I carry five 2"x8"x16" wood blocks I cut. Each one has a 45 degree angle cut on one edge. 16" allows both tires on a side to be supported on one block. Seldom need a combination using over three of them. If one eventually cracks I just cut another.

Could not justify the cost for hyd levelers so I purchased 4 ea 10 ton bottle jacks - use those to both stop the wobble and to level when needed.
