Leveling jacks

Any thoughts on how much it should cost to install leveling jacks on a 2022 Forest River Sunseeker 2550SLE?

When I was shopping for a used rig, I wanted to know the ans to your question too ............. in case I found an otherwise desirable coach I liked w/o levelers. I called HWH in Moscow, IA and they quoted about $3500 IIRC but that was years ago. Still, you might give 'em a call and you would have a valid data point to go by. (800) 321-3494 BTW-The HWH folks told me I should expect a hit on my CCC of about 180 lb but that hit would not be as significant on your coach (most 30+ footers are hurtin' a bit on CCC.......mine included.)

The original owner of the coach I ended up with had factory-installed HWH levelers; in 15 years, the only service item has been to add a qt of HWH hyd oil (but not all have been so "lucky".) I have read a lot of good things re Bigfoot levelers over the years..... one might call one of their dealers; several posters have self-installed the Bigfoot brand and were happy with their choice.

Good luck with your project and safe travels.

I have had both, currently factory installed Bigfoot. They are located in White Pigeon, MI. Phn. 800-752-9815

Both companies were great to deal with.

I have the manual system & so far, so good.

I had them added by the dealer on my 2022 Jayco Redhawk 31F. Dealer charged me $5600 if I remember correctly. They are the Bigfoot automatic levelers. Iím sure I overpaid a bit but I wanted them on the dealer warranty. Which Iíve already used on a replacement jack that was leaking.

$3,540.00 for the automatic version, Plus installation. (Starts at 800.00)
We had ours installed by Quadra Mfg. (Bigfoot) themselves. White Pigeon, MI.
Very happy with them also.

They sometimes do a special on installation for $400 if you schedule to do it during the winter months.

It may have been wise to wait previously, but the way inflation is kicking us all in the A*s, I would not wait. I had mine installed by Bigfoot, March 2021 and the labor has gone from 500.00 to 800.0 and my (automatic) unit from 3,370.00 to 3,540.00.

The new sale prices are today's prices..
