Bigfoot does an excellent job installing and configuring them.

They do the install at the factory in White Pigeon Michigan and have electric hookups for overnighting when doing your install.

I'm the oddball. I have hydraulic levers and hardly ever use them. My next rv, I will be back to using wood and interior levels. Doing it that way has made lift easier for me. I don't even have to push a button now to level it.
I installed two bubble levels, one on the dash for right to left and just above the passengers head for my front to rear level. Whenever I park, I adjust my position so I'm level, then I set up my campsite around that rv position.
Since I did that I can find a level spot on most campsites and parking lots. I only use my levelers to test them , to see if they still work or not.

I think Bob may be onto something. Most of us that responded about our levelers have much longer MH's 29-40 ft. His is a 24 ft MH. Being much shorter he can position the MH in a level spot easier that a longer MH. I wonder how many other people with 22-25ft MH's feel they need a leveling system? Maybe Bob is not an odd ball after all.

We like our levelers for more than just the ease of leveling. The stability they provide so we're not rocking and rolling when one of us moves around is also important to us. We park on too many sites that require significant leveling with little option for moving around to find a level spot to want to go back to blocks for leveling. We did that years ago with a 21' Class C, but never again...

We have Bigfoot auto leveling on our 5th wheel....17 years old and work flawlessly. “If” our Bigfoot Class C didn’t already have hydraulic leveling from another manufacturer ..... I would go with Bigfoot! Yep, you read that correctly.....I would have Bigfoot auto leveling on our Bigfoot! [emoticon] memtb

My Class C is 30 feet 2002 and we have RVed for almost 20 years, only used wood to level it but not very often. We never stay for more than 3 days at one campground since the purpose of the Class C is to move often during vacation, except for Disney Fort Wilderness. I probably would have ordered it with levelers but lived without it.

I agree. To me, the biggest benefit to leveling jacks is that the coach becomes rock-solid when they are down. No bouncing around on the suspension!
