Should I get

Should I get the electric rear stabilizer jacks..?
The front main landingear jacks are electric, they will raise our lower the FW..?
I'm going to order soon and I'm debating on weather our not to get the 4 point auto leveling system.
If I use the andersen levelers for the side to side, and the front and rear electric for the front to back leveling, Then I wont need the auto level.

Many people, including myself, have had issues with the Level Up 3.0. That being said, my issues were addressed through a TSB and warranty coverage and since have not had a problem. It's nice to hit a button and watch it level itself. On the other hand, if you are saving money and don't mind the work why bother. Speed wise, I think I could manually level my old trailer faster.

I have to agree with Knauby. We have the 4-point system on ours and it has been a bit temper mental. If you don't mind learning the ins and outs of the controller and then work around its errors, you would enjoy it. If I had to do it again, I would only order the electric rear jacks and not bother with the auto level controller.

I have the electric jacks and wouldn't go back to manuals. I have heard nothing but issues with the auto leveling. Mine came with a remote control for jack, slides etc. and I thought it was a joke, then I used it. Nothing like walking around outside and seeing everything's working properly and no obstructions. The jacks are for leveling and stabilizing, not to lift it.

I am a campground host and one of the biggest problems I see campers having is with electric stabilizers.. My advice go to Harbor Freight and for about $100.00 you can get a battery operated 1/2" impact gun. This is great for raising and lowering the jacks and if you have a flat tire BONUS as it works great on lug nuts.

I am a big fan of the electric stabilizer jacks. I too have heard about all the problems with the auto leveling systems so I would not get them myself. If you can get the remote with yours, it is a nice feature to have.

How many were just electric levelers and how many Auto levelers. The auto are the ones with the issues.

Mine came with auto-level. It's never worked properly. Hit and miss at best. The electric jacks work fine and I use them manually, but never in auto. I'd like to replace them at some time with a more robust electric or hydraulic system.

I thank everyone for the reply's.
I think when I order, I'll not get the Auto Level.
