I've used them under my front landing gear on my 13k fifth wheel. Their instructions do say to go no more than 4-blocks high.

Brought Motorhome to the dealer today to get leveling system fixed. They originally installed a bullseye leveling system on our 3051. When I inquired about how they were going to resolve it they informed me that they had ordered a set of folding legs for the bullseye system. I researched online the bullseye system and it states that it does work with a Class C. However, I'm still upset that they charged me $4500 for a leveling system that costs $2500 retail......I'm sure they got a dealer cost but even if they didn't....$2000 for installation??? I went with the dealer because I thought they represented the quality of forest river...very frustrating.

$2500 for what system? We use a Bigfoot system not Bullseye.

The bullseye system is what was installed on our 3051. I was charged $4500 from the dealer at closing to add a self leveling system. The bullseye is a $2500 system retail price.

I don't know enough about the system, but I know for ours we have to weld brackets onto the frame to accept the jack mounts. It's not just plug and play.

I work with dealers across the country and most dealers charge $4500-$5500 for auto leveling jack installation. Whether its high or not...that seems to be the going rate.

Good to know this, as I have "dragged rear" on every Class C I have owned. Especially getting on and off Ferries. I hold my breath when getting on a ferry. I always thought it was my Blue Ox Scooter carrier that was dragging. I have a Blue Ox carrier, it's meant for the "Scooter Store" type of scooters, but I have a regular bike scooter, I put two wood rails on it, and I take my electric bike scooter on it. I like it because it folds up when I don't need it. Other bike carriers don't fold up like this one does.

We have had the Bullseye for less than 1 year on our 2013 3010 Sunseeker and they keep sticking. I just spent an hour trying to get them back up as a motor is out. Looking to possibly replace with Bigfoot system. Any suggestions for what bigfoot model to go with? Looking for dealer in Northwest Washington to install...

I don't actually know the model since its custom built for us. I'll email Quadra and see if they ever gave it a model number.

Quadra tells me the part number for the Sunseeker is QEAM-13. They still need to know what model you have to make floor plan specific adjustments.

JMAS -

We have a '13 3100. Had Quadra put a system on at their Michigan facility. I know it's too far for you but they were outstanding to work with (they hiked up the back cylinders a little more than normal as we back into a sloped driveway). The invoice shows the model number as QEIAM-1214C. It's the four pump auto system. I went back and forth between four pump (Bigfoot series) and single pump (EZ series). Might have gone single pump if had to do over. We are weekend warriors and believe that would have been sufficient for our needs. It comes down to what you want to spend, your needs, etc.

By the way, when you say "what Bigfoot model", note that Bigfoot is the model name (four pump). EZ is the other model name (single pump). You probably mean to say what Quadra model.

Good luck!
