Must have made a change in there jacks or s different model.
Ones we had on our class A Coronado. Each jack had it's own oil re savor and pump. Just had to run electric wiring to each jack.

Unit also had a key. So you could lock the system out. Made a good security set up. If jacks were down and you removed the key. No way could anyone start the MH.

Yes, it sounds like you had the auto-levelling model. It was another $1200, and I just decided that for $1200, I would do the levelling myself.

Hello Duane,

Do you have any updates, I am looking to do the same on my 2008 Winnebago Outlokk. I would like to know if this worked for you.

Thank You
George

Bigfoot Jacks

Forgive me if I am forward this is my first post. I have a 2011 Jayco Greyhawk 31FS
I just got my new Class C in July of this year and had the Bigfoot automatic leveling system installed before I picked it up. I have to admit that it does offer more stability while camping and takes the guess work out of leveling your coach. Before I installed them I spoke extensively with the owner and these are IMHO the best you can get. The good news about these jacks is that you can lift the tires off the ground with them. The bad news is that they do tend to torque your coach a bit when in use. This may make the door and the bathroom door a bit harder to open and close.
Once you have them installed I highly recommend you get a can of DRY silicone and coat all 4 of your pistons. This will make things easier down the road. You may want to add this to your semiannual maintenance of your coach. Since each of the jacks are sealed and separate units there is no other maintenance. Just remember that you will lose a bit of ground clearance. Enjoy them I do…

George,

I am enjoying them very much. They are working as advertised, I don't know how they could have made them any better! A little easier on the wallet would have been nice, but I would do it again. Hope that helps you out in making your decision.

Great job and it has been a big help. I am thinking seriously of doing this myself when I get to FL. I will certainly get under the MH and take more measurements. Thanks for all the good info. Ken

Do you by chance have a pictures of the install.....I have a 2005 Fleetwood Jamboree 26Q, we have been thinking about getting some and having them installed. Glad to see you are happy with them so far.
