adding leveling jacks
« on: May 21, 2017, 09:21:13 AM »
Any idea how much it would cost to add automatic leveling jacks to a 2016 Cambria do they sell a kit?

What John said.  I priced them for a Class C when I was shopping and they quoted about $4K (if installed by HWH at their Moscow, IA facility.)   Found a gently used rig that already had HWH levelers though, so that worked out better for me.  I use them all the time for added stability, but I can't argue with those who say they would rather buy gas with the money....... they have a point.    :^)

 That's one option I wish I would've got you don't think about it do you get out their level by hand  In the heat I much rather just be able to push a button I'm going to have to find out who sells a kit

We have a Quadra Bigfoot automatic leveling system on our coach and love it. Our previous coach didn't have levelers, so I bought a complete E-Z Level kit from Bigfoot for about $2,000 at the time, and installed it myself. The E-Z is a single pump system instead the 4-pump system Bigfoot usually uses, and has a manual push button panel that runs the jacks in pairs. It was very easy to use. I don't know if they still sell that setup or not, but Quadra is currently running a $100 installation deal at their White Pigeon, MI facility.

On edit: I just checked, and Quadra does still offer the single pump system, and now comes with a wireless remote control instead of the wired panel my system had. The price has also gone up to $2866 since I bought it in 2008.

I have an appointment there in a few weeks to get this system installed on my 5th wheel and am glad to read your assessment of it!  Thanks.

We got the levelers added when we got the Suncruiser.
It seemed to take about three or four times of deploying them before the system learned the actually level the MH.
The first couple of times, it jacked the front way up, and then stopped with an alert that the ground was too steep an incline. we had to manually set the level.
about the fourth try it seemed to figure it out and now it's great.

The Bigfoot automatic leveler system has a simple routine for setting the level status at the control panel.
