I’ve got the HWH system, straightleg jacks with the joystick controller on the floor next to the driver side wall.
Some on this forum have the HWH kick down jacks with auto controller
HWH is (in general) more expensive than Bigfoot
I’m very happy with it, worth every penny spent

Your right! It does work that way (By Hold both buttons down to raise one end at the same time). The reason I thought it was NOT working is the LF led light is not working on the control panel. I guess I need to call BF to get a free replacement but its really not a big deal if they dont.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Are you refering to the Big Foot system or the HWH that Taylorbob mentioned?

Mine is not that noisy.... Its an electic pump sound. Inside the RV its very quiet to me but you can hear it more outside but I dont think it would bother anyone.

Ok - thats what I have .... I think when retracting is a little bit louder at first? Has kind of a whine sound? Maybe its pushing fluid backwards so it take 30 seconds to pressureized?

I bet your okay..... How many times have you deployed and retracted?

I have only used mine a hand full of times. I actually used on my driveway yesterday testing it all out. Works great. Im going to relocate my control panel next to the cockpit - driver side (Left side of dash) in the spring.

Your leveling system requires that you jack-up in pairs.

So for changing your front passenger tire...place 2"-3" blocks under both front foot pads, then raise the front end until tires are off the ground

As said on another thread...it's always best to NOT extend the jacks to maximum because that is where they become weakest.

So when in doubt, use a block or two under the foot pads to increase the jack's extension without extending the jack (did I say that right???).

Thanks, they were just installed last week so I have only tried them (like yourself) in the driveway. I had the control panel left loose on drivers side but have ordered a surface mount box so I can place it within comfortable reach and visibility. I also place a set of levels nearby, one under the window and the other on the dash. one stop leveling.

I just got our Quantum home from having the Platinum system installed at Big Foot this morning. Appointment at 10:30 on the way home by 12:30 after getting a full instruction session on operation. Gotta say I am very impressed with their operation, professional, courteous and know their product. My panel is located just to the left by the entry door, kind of standard for a class C installation. So far I've only them at Big Foot and in the drive but am very happy with how they perform and how stable the coach is when on the jacks.

Yeah you will love them. I only used them like once at a CG plus like 4 times on my driveway now. So far so good.

I was kinda afraid of them at first. But im getting use to them now. No big deal to jack the front tires off the ground.

But I think in a windstorm I would raise them up where they are still touching the ground but not really jacking up the RV. That should help with rocking (from the wind that is.... LOL).
