Over the years we have had jacks on several different rigs. Even now with our 41' Dutch Star Diesel Pusher (31,000#s) and HWH hydraulic levelers (12,000# rating for each of the four) we still can't totally eliminate some movement when walking even dumping the air and putting all four jacks down.

For those with leveling jacks, do they make a difference in terms of the unit bouncing around? And then more specifically, does it go from noticeable to still noticeable, 50% improvement, or barely noticeable? Thanks!
Paul,

We have had this discussion on another thread, but I felt I could give you some good info on this now as we have just spent 10 days in MI trying the levelers out. We parked on blacktop drive way(brother-in-law's house), gravel campsite on the way home and to be completely honest I was maybe a little disappointed in what they did. Could not really tell difference between the two surfaces. Don't get me wrong set up is completely awesome for leveling and I would get them again just for that. I also hate sleeping while you are holding onto something so you don't fall out of bed. Since we have a 1 year old that still wakes up at night I got sleep in the back with our 3 year old and my DW slept above the cab so she could get up without waking our 3 year old to take care of the kid. She could always tell when I rolled over in the back and when she climbed up to bed you could tell it. I never felt her roll over though, that maybe because she is 1/2 my size though to. It does not take the rolling motion of side to side, but competely takes out the up and down motion. To get rid of the side to side motion a person would almost have to put outriggers on the MH. That is my opinion on our ez-levelers from Quatro Man. We drove right by Quatro Man. on our way to a flea market. I would say I am satisfied with my purchase, but it did not take everything out that I had hoped for, but it did do alot more than just struts, shocks and air bags.

Chris

We did end up getting the Quadra Bigfoot system (directly from Quadra at their facility in SW Michigan). I agree with your review. It doesn't completely eliminate the ounce but it certainly reduces it. We are happy with the purchase.
