Bigfoot Leveler Controller

The left right bubble is off (I hit it). My phone level app shows perfectly level each time.

If your ordering your rv, have the level up system included. Have on my 5er & will never have another rv without it. I pull into a site push a button to raise to unhook, push a button & 10-15 seconds later we're level & it remembers the height I unhitched from when ready to go. We carry 2 Lynx levelers per jack in case there's a spot that's extremely in level. I unloaded .y personal lumber yard of blocks & boards used to level our last rv & freed up a substantial amount of storage space. In short get the level system.

Sewer hose routing

One thing I didn't see mentioned is the sewer dump hose connection. On my 25.3 there is a cover that you can unscrewed right under the sewer hose connection. The location is horrible because you can't route your hose out of the connection down through the hole because it is literally right under the connection and the pipes cover the hole up. The only option is to route the hose out the access door opening, which is several inches higher than the connection. I haven't dumped the tanks yet and was wondering if any one else's 25.3 was set up the same. If so, how does it dump going up hill?

About leveling - we only stayed in it two nights and two parks and didn't need to level it. I have blocks and plan to use them if needed. Level HWH may be on the list but they are $5k installed and we are waiting to see if we need them.

On PDI only two items:
1) Pocket doors rattling and won't lock closed. Dealer's service department adjusted holes for pin. Driver's side door should shut and lock flush with wall and now does. Passenger side there are wiring harnesses behind it so the best you do is flush with wardrope which is out farther than kitchen side wall. No rattles now.
2) Entrance Door detent fell off. Reinstalled with loctite.

After one overnight stay and 350 miles return trip home no problems.

Wife loves it and she is now driving it to releave me. This is new as she would never drive the 38 ft DP. I drove it in desert cross winds and its not bad. I was pulling a Wrangler. Love the power!

Things I don't like and for people who are interested in purchasing this model:
Bad Thor Engineering on :
1- bathroom heater vent - location near door pointing under door and the room gets cold with door shut.
2 - When bedroom slide is closed for traveling the HVAC control is behind the slide wall and you have to access it by opening the slide window. Really stupid location.
3- and of course the wiring harnesses behind the passenger side pocket door. Make sure the doors latch and don't rattle.
4 - the front window shade is a pain to operate but I manage.
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Items we plan to do (within a month of two at most):
A - replace dinette with recliners
B - replace batteries with Lithium ones and solar panels
C - Add elbow to sewer connector - access is a pain. (Thor did change it to swivel but not good enough) - may go with macerator not sure yet.
D - Add front steering stabilizer (purchased Safe-T-Plus waitning for it to arrive).
E - replace the two accordian shades with day/night ones. Other windows have black out shades - why not all windows??
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

The whole connection assembly rotates down on my 24.1. Seemed to OK for my first dump...

One of the things I noticed on my 25.2 was that the hole cover was screwed in from under the coach. I removed it and rotated the drain down so that the sewer hose came through from the bottom to the pipe. When I reinstalled the cover, I did so from the top side.

BUT, I think we are hijacking this thread :-)

I just tried it and sure enough, it rotates to point out the opening. Thanks everyone for helping the newbie!

And it adds 10-15 minutes to setup, which means a 10-15 minute delay to our first glass of wine. The wine is usually more important.
Like your logic 😊

i've been using a phone app for years for this purpose, but it's a minor pain to dig out the phone, find the app, etc....
The app I have switches to a bullseye type bubble simulation when the phone is laying flat, so I lat it on the MH floor just over my right armrest
BUt
I have been intending to install some bubbles on the dash or someplace like tycreek... just haven't gotten to it.

OH how I would like to have a powered system.
I've seriously considered the Bigfoot system, over the HWH one....
but , I'm afraid DW will yell because they are expensive...

In reality though, I have found that I haven't needed it very often at all, we're usually level enough... this last trip though, ugh.... I was struggling to get it right with the boards...

I used to want the full auto system, but now I think that if I were to ever buy one, I'd likely save the money and just get a manual one only because I really don't need it all that often and manual control would be good enough for me...

I've even thought of installing some manual crank scissor jacks or something....

Looks like you found a perfect place to put the control pad on your leveling system well done
