Congrats on the decision - hope your experience is as good as mine has been so far. As for camping spots, can't help too much - if you make it to Des Moines IA there are several campground (all COE) on Saylorville Lake. My favorite is Prairie Flower Loop C. All cement pads - no full hookups - but with elect.

Keep your leveling blocks. I found them useful to put under the jacks on soft earth and very helpful if the site is a little too off level for the jacks alone. I had the HWH levelers installed on my WB 24 ft Class C and love them. Enjoy your trip.

We have HWH Hydraulic Levelers and noticed that they leak down. Are they low on fluid? We are new RVrs.

if they are leaking down and there is no fluid present on the jacks, hoses or pump area, It is the small valve that opens to retract the jacks. many times they can be taken out and cleaned. Most times you have to change them.

Update: Went to HWH and had the Levelers installed on my coach. They did a great job installing everything. They even let me watch so that I would be aware of all the equipment and how it was installed. It took them all day because they have to make custom brackets for the jacks to frame installation.

They gave me the choice of straight jacks or swing up jacks. I chose the straight jacks because they have less moving parts and a longer stroke than the swing ups. They installed 6k jacks on the front and 9k jacks on the rear. Plenty of lifting power for this coach.

They did not finish until around 6pm, so after they finished, we took off down the road for a couple hours. I pulled into a campsite and hit they auto level button and wallah. Just perfect since they last thing I wanted to do was level in the dark on an uneven spot. It sure is nice to just push a button and be done.

After watching these guys install my equipment and see what was involved, I would be skeptical of letting just any RV place do the work; not to mention the extra costs the dealers charge.

They shared a couple horror stories with me about customers who had dealer installations that the customers brought to HWH to fix.

glad to hear you had a good experience. i went the same route a couple years ago. HWH levelers still working as good as day one. i opted for the kick-down and am very pleased. the shorter stroke hasn't bothered me yet. i carry "a wood shed" and use blocks under the tires if i run into a "slope"

Good luck with your levelers
