Best Leveling Jacks to Buy

I can only speak for what I've seen and heard about the electric screw type : even after a couple different tightening attempts the neighbors could still feel the dog run across the floor . Only a small/medium size dog of no more than 25 - 30 pounds . They got use to it while they had that trailer , but , when they bought a new trailer they made sure that it had a different type jack set up . In their words " much better" . The new jacks were a manual screw type . He had a friend tighten them as he was 'older' and weak from a life of labor . His friend used a portable drill that seemed fairly heavy duty .

I have been thinking of do it for years, until I see the price,  I hear that hydraulic are better and will last longer than Electric, but that is not from experience .  My Dear Bride says I can still put the levelers under the wheels.  So I do.  I did get the nice drive on kind that make it easier.

BTW,  welcome to the Forum.

Another welcome to the Escapee forums!

As one who has had motorhomes both with and without leveling systems, I would never buy another that didn't have them. I much prefer the hydraulic, but might let price override that preference as there are some good electric ones as I believe that they will cost less in an add-on situation.

Both our current and previous Class A's are equipped with  Quadra Manufacturing's "Bigfoot" hydraulic jack leveling system. The previous coach had manual controls, and the current coach has their fully automatic system. Both have worked well and quite reliably. I prefer the positive retraction dual acting cylinders over the spring return jacks like the HWH systems. Quadra also has an excellent customer service department. If you can get to their White Pigeon, MI facility, they offer very reasonable pricing on installations.
