4 Point Leveling system

What is the brand and model of the 4 point leveling system that can be ordered with the 2014 Jayco Premier?

Thanks

Our 2014 Premier came with the Atwood Levelegs 4 point leveling system.So far it has worked great. I am impressed with how solid it makes the fifth wheel.

I have some questions on this whole leveler thing. If your not supposed to be off the ground with your tires and the unit is going to "self level" then what's the whole point of it? You pull in the site and unless you are within an inch of level side to side then it's probably useless unless you build up on boards to get close to level, no?

I get the front to back leveling, but that is easily achieved through the landing gear.

Also I can see where they may be slightly more supportive in the rear than the power legs that come as standard equipment.

Are you not worried about frame torque? Just curious on how much faster and easier this system makes leveling?

Uh, no!!

True when looking at some type of level gauge. What your missing is the Atwood 4 point Leveling System does this for you (no need to have level gauges stuck on the front and side of your rig) and you are free to go do other things like hooking up your water, sewer etc.

Also I can see where they may be slightly more supportive in the rear than the power legs that come as standard equipment.

Way more than "slightly". Believe you are talking about the electric rear stabilizers that come standard. Remember they are just that..STABILIZERS and not meant for leveling or supporting any kind of weight.

A lot faster but the key word I believe is the convenience...plus a whole lot easier.

Do a search here in the Forums and you will find a lot of info on the Atwood and other auto leveling systems.

Also here is a link to a video that may answer more more of your questions.

Hop this all helps.

It may be easier, I think being able to level left to right with out having to block up the tires is nice.I haven't been in a site yet where the tires have been off the ground but we have only been out twice with the new 5th.The system works well and the few problems I have had were probably operator error. The user manual is not written very well and makes the system seem quite complicated.
