Weight of HWH leveling system

Hi All,
Buying a Winnebago N24G. And considering adding HWH jacks. How much weight does this jack system add to the coach? What have others experience with these jacks. I know with our old Journey getting the HWH rear jacks to come up was an issue. Had to carry a 2 by 4 to pry them up. Last question: Do we really need the jacks?
Thanks

There are a variety of HWH leveling systems available, the weight may vary according to the weight of your chassis and the size of the system you install.

Since the RV has already been made, I'd wait until you use the RV and decide if the expense of the system is something you want to pay for and get installed.

If you haven't 'pulled the trigger' yet on the RV, you might see if it would be cheaper to have it installed at time of assembly of the unit.

We have a Class C and spend most nights in COE and State Park CGs. We are often within a 1/2 bubble of level in both directions and if not, we can level with blocks in about 5 minutes. The simplicity and reliability of leveling blocks is our solution when out of level.

HWH reports that the jacks weigh 170-180 lbs. At $4000 installed you can buy lots of LEGO blocks and a Levelmate Pro which is a really slick device that tells you how high or low each of the four corners are.

I have a 15 View G. Have HWH Levelers
Love them. The View G with screw jacks and Lego was a pain and the coach rocks. Buy the Levelers
