Leveling systems, the automatic ones are great until you have to fix them....sounds like anything else. Just had to replace a hydrolic pump motor....from Lippet, it would have been a thousand.....just for the motor....lucky to find a US company making them for $400....that said, I would consider installing manual jacks and doing it the bubble level/electric drill to level and retract. Cheaper, a little more work sure but so much easier on the wallet and the sleep time knowing you're not going to have to worry about an auto system breakdown...IMHO

Yes, this BigFoot method seems to be the most cost effective.
Sometimes they have a special where you get the $2300 parts installed for $300 (or less).
Many have done it this way.

We have a 2018 30FE. After using it for a year and a half, we had the Bigfoot levelers installed at the factory in Michigan. We already had the Level Mate Pro. Between the two, leveling is a breeze.

I had Bigfoot auto levelers installed at the White Pigeon facility best decision. 30ft motorhome is now rock solid when camping.

For 2020: Tiffin has switched to the BigFoot system as an option on the Wayfarers.

Bigfoot levelers the way to go

We also got the Bigfoot leveler system installed at the factory in White Pigeon, MI last summer. It is the best thing that we have had done with our Axis 25.1. Works great so far. No issues. We also got the SnapPads added and they make it so easy to put the levelers down in many environments. Good luck on your search.

Just had the Big Foot installed. Itís a really great system and the company support is good too. I went with the semi automatic one. Makes a world of difference in the coach when parked. No more yellow blocks to drive on.
