4 point electric leveling jacks

Hello everyone! We just ordered a 2013 eagle premier 351mkts, we ordered the electric leveling system hoping for ease of setup & stability. Also contacted the factory to get electric stabilizers added to the rear, as they are deleated w/leveling system. does anyone have this leveling system & how do you like it? (And yes I know backing on blocks isn't difficult, but I aint gettin' any younger either).

We have it on our 2012 Pinnacle and it's great. The first time we backed into a camp site my wife gave me the motion as to say (we are in a good spot how are we for level) and I told her it didn't matter because we had the self leveling system, she smiled and gave me a thumbs up. We have been on the road for 5 months this summer and love this system, no more block's to carry around in the truck. Unhook then push a buttom and watch it do it's thing. I have not had any problems. You like it so much you look forward to the next time you have to use it. Even if we are in a Walmart parking lot overnight, with our other traler we would just put down the front jacks now we unhook and level off so it never matters how much of a slope you are on the trailer is level. We were set up in one spot the wheels on one side of the trailer were completely off the ground.

That is great, the new leveling systems are nice.
The leveling system was not available on our 2011 Pinnacle so we are looking at intalling the Reico Titan 4 Point leveling system this fall.
Since we fulltime and move around quite a bit it sure would be nice not having to deal with blocks and such evertime we setup.

That is one strong lady ! Maybe she's just holding the ground down, like we used to do with push-ups in the Army.

Thanks for the input. Pretty bad the dealer couldn't answer my questions on the jacks. They claimed they were too new & didn't know about them. :-(

I am looking into adding the Level Up system on our Eagle. It's made by Lippert Components and is a 6-point leveling system to help the frame from flexing. Now to find a dealer to sell it to me and let ME install it.

I agree. The best install is by yourself. The only time someone else touches our stuff is under warranty. (and then I have to re-do some of it when we get home :-()
