Auto Leveling System: HWH 610 Series ?

I asked my dealer about a leveling system for our Sunseeker 2860DS and they offered the HWH 610 Series fully automatic system. My online searching thus far has suggested to me that Big Foot is more popular, but I wanted to ask here where there are a lot of people with valuable experience.

Would you recommend an automatic leveling system?

Thank you.

I have a couple of friends that have a 6 point Bigfoot system and they love it. I am envious!

Only thing that is holding me back is the cost at this point

I have the Big Foot system. So far no problems. Sure is nice to hit a button, grab a cold one, and fire up the grill.

My RV mechanic recommended the HWH. I trust him and am very pleased.

That's good feedback. I checked the Quadra website and they list my RV dealer as a dealer for BigFoot but the dealer says they don't sell it. So if I use these people I feel like the HWH is my option. As long as it works I am not sure I care a lot. I had read a lot of good feedback about the BigFoot system tho.

What kind of regular maintenance do you perform on your HWH system?

Thanks for replying!

Have the factory Big Foot automatic option on a 2012 3120. It's my first RV with leveling syatem and I'm not impressed with it. Limited range, good for correcting only several inches before one or more jacks hit their end of travel. Leak prone, every jack has weeping oil somewhere. Not terrible and you may not notice unless you store your unit inside or on concrete. Four pumps, controls, and reservoirs add extra weight and unnecessary complication. Automatic operation is hit or miss and often leaves one jack off the ground or barely touching. Would prefer a single pump manual system with fewer connections for leaks and fewer parts to fail. HWH system with swing jacks looks decent with single pump. Other straight jack HWH type states that it is very heavy. Not something you want on a class C.

I think we're prototyping a single pump system at some point.
