Any feedback on whether to get the quad pump or single pump setup for an auto-leveling bigfoot system? (For a Four Winds 26b on Chevy chassis.)

4 pump vs 1 pump Bigfoot

I have had both the 4-pump and the 1- pump systems. My 31ft Winnebago had the 4, and my 24ft Thor has the single.
Both work efectively. The 4 is a little faster.

Great! Thanks. I think I'm leaning towards the 4 pump one. The price isn't that different.

4 pump system

The disadvantages of the 4 pump system are a little more under frame space required, more opportunities for leaks, and more expensive..

Does anyone know where to have bigfoot installed in the northwest? Long way to the factory from here just to have jack put on.

I strongly suggest calling the factory in MI to seek this type of help. They should be able to help.
You want a capable knowable installer. Someone who has installed their product in the past
Just out of curiosity I went on Bigfoot website, locate a dealer and there are over 50 dealers in the northwest

I suggest you contact Bigfoot Customer Service [not Thor] to get locations for local installation dealers they recommend. --- I didn't.

I took my camper to a truck repair center and had the unit physically installed [welding brackets, run hydraulic lines]. Then I called Bigfoot [Jim] and he guided me on the electrical hookup and dialing in the system to level. The owners manual is quite good.
I thought about drilling and bolting on the cylinders to the frame, without the brackets, but the front of the frame on my Chevy chassis is boxed. Also I took it to the shop because I didn't really have a good place to work on it besides my steeply graded driveway.
My levelers work great. One of the best investments I have made on the camper.

So now I'm on a quest to find and get installed the system I wish was included from the factory. The Thor rep told me they install LCi jacks from the factory, and that Big Foot Auto Levelers are a popular choice aftermarket. Bigfoot has one designed for the 2019 Mercedes Chassis which they say requires no drilling or welding. Anyone have suggestions? Anyone have experience with Bigfoot auto leveler?

Thanks for your input or suggestions

Greg, not sure if you have fixed the problem. Maybe set up the Level Mate Pro again. This is what I did and it works great First ensure your rig is completely level . I use a round bubble level that I lay on the floor. After you are completely level, set up the Level Mate Pro again following the directions. The level mate pro makes leveling simple and accurate, even allowing for 1/4 " drop when the slides go out.
