Leveling Jacks Opinions
We have decided to add leveling jacks to our Sunseeker. We can generally find level sites. But it's more about stabilizing. Probably something to do with a 12 yr old DD & a (very active) 8 yr old DS!
I have decided on Quadra. That's the manufacturer Forest River uses for Sunseekers. Also, they have a pretty good reputation on the net. And I'm less than 5 hrs away from their Michigan facility for the install.
Here's my question - which system do I get?
They have a Bigfoot series with quad pumps or 1 pump dedicated to each cylinder (this is the system Forest River uses with Sunseekers).
They also have an EZ series with only 1 pump for all 4 cylinders.
The series choice drives the price. The Bigfoot series is $1270 more than the EZ series. That's a big price difference.
Either system can handle either an automatic or manual control but that is a small factor in the price.
Quadra told me that the Bigfoot series with 4 pumps is more bullet proof, reliable, & adds to system longevity versus the EZ series.
Their warranty bears that out as the Bigfoot series has a much better warranty than the EZ series.
I get all that. But we do mostly weekend trips + one week long trip only during the summer months. Although we hope to keep the unit for quite awhile.
If I was a fulltimer, I would get the Bigfoot series. Would the EZ series suffice for our occasional use? Or would I eventually regret that decision due to needing more maintenance, fixing breakdowns, etc with the cheaper series? I just don't really know the life expectancy of 1 pump operating all 4 jacks.
Thanks in advance for the opinions.
