Automatic RV leveling makes setting up camp fun again
The average RVer might assume that almost every RV has some sort of built-in leveling system. In truth, a surprising number of RVs have such a system. not are equipped with leveling jacks. Even some of these RVs in equally surprising price ranges are often not equipped with automatic leveling jacks. Further evidence of this is the large number of leveling pads, blocks and ramps available to the camper.
The age of a mobile home can also be a reason for the lack of leveling jacks. If you turn back the clock ten or more years, today’s motorhomes are not as equipped with automatic leveling as their like models of yesteryear. Many motorhomes that WERE equipped with leveling systems in previous years are often inadequately designed, worn or no longer functional, and there is no prospect of obtaining the correct parts after so many years.

Why a leveling system for mobile homes?
If you don’t already have a working leveling system, there are a few reasons why installing one is an excellent investment.
After a long day of driving, RVers look forward to setting up camp and enjoying the outdoors. One of the most frustrating tasks that delays a good dinner and campfire is leveling the RV.
Without automatic RV leveling, you can easily spend 30 minutes leveling your RV with ramps, blocks and dozens of careful adjustments. Just a half-inch difference at the front of the RV can prove to be much more at the kitchen table inside. In bad weather, this process becomes even longer and more difficult.
Automatic leveling systems are conveniently used from the RV or from outside the RV via the Bluetooth app. Apart from a quick walk around outside the motorhome to make sure you are positioned correctly and safely, you can do all your motorhome leveling from inside the motorhome, even in bad weather.
An RV that is not level can have some safety disadvantages. Your RV refrigerator MUST be level in most cases. An RV refrigerator that is not level will not cool properly and can be a fire hazard.
Abnormal countertops can also be a problem as they can cause things to roll off unexpectedly and cause injury or damage. Think of a heavy soup can on a porcelain tile! Something could also roll into a crack or crevice that you can’t see or reach until it’s time to get the slides, and then….CRACK.
There are several other issues that need to be considered when an RV is not properly leveled. A motorhome, fifth wheel or travel trailer that is not leveled may experience slight twisting of the frame or other major structural components.
This torsional stress can manifest itself in broken windshields, doors and windows that do not open or close properly, and sliding panels that do not extend…or perhaps do not retract once extended. The damage resulting from these failures can be catastrophic with equally catastrophic costs.
Today’s modern motorhome owner expects an automatic leveling system. When you equip your motorhome with such a system, you increase its resale value should you ever part with your motorhome. Whether you trade in your motorhome or sell it yourself, the added value of an automatic leveling system is significant.
Stabilizer Supports vs. RV Leveling Systems
Stabilizer jacks are commonly found in RVs and come in a variety of shapes. These stabilizer supports are not be equated with leveling systems. They are used only According to the motorhome is leveled (using these pads, ramps and blocks) to prevent swaying and rocking in the motorhome.
Stabilizer supports are a nice touch, but they cannot support the weight of the motorhome and do not adequately and safely level the motorhome in an uneven situation.
Leveling systems for RVs, on the other hand, are designed to do all of these things. A motorhome leveled with an automatic leveling system is usually also a very stable motorhome that does not require additional stabilization.
