Good job! I don't have the stablizers on mine, but I'm glad there is a solution for the problem. I sure would hate for those to go down on the middle of an interstate. Happy trails.

The installation of my four point system was completed on Friday. I have lots of photos and some hints for others that may be considering a similar Solera instillation. I pllan to create a document combining some of the photos with a narrative and will post it as a pdf when ready. We have yet to go on the road with the coach but, as you can imagine, have run it through the paces a number of times with none of the issues mentioned on various forums. On the other hand, I'll be on the alert for any possible malfunctions. Some starter facts: Total cost of the system hardware was about $2,700 and I paid a fellow RVer (retired from 20 plus years on the GM shop floor) to install it so my total cost came in under $4,000. The total weight with two of the cross supports is 250 pounds. The spare tire is now in the under-bed compartment of our 2010 SS24S since the rear legs needed some of the space. The hydralic pump is mounted under the hood on the driver's side.

I have the stabilizers on mine and love them (other than a small leak in a fitting we had to fix). I also relocated the control panel from under the RV mounted on the ram to an exterior compartment so now no crawling under the rig if the remote fails to work!

I have been negligent in posting the photo and narrative material I recorded during our installation. Now traveling for ten days with our grandson and it will have to wait until after Christmas. That said, like boats742, life is good with the 4-point Bigfoot levelers on our Solera SS24S. Currently have a leak on the pump where the solenoid switch for the rear driver-side connects. Took a long time to identify the source since it wasn't one of our connections but rather poor assembly from Bigfoot. According to their service department, the solution is to replace the "O" ring at that connection point. Doing so will cause a substantial loss of ATF-4 that will gush through the engine compartment and will have to be caught before it hits the ground. At least access to make the repair is wide open since the master unit is under the hood on the driver side. Hate to think what it would take to repair a simple "O" ring leak if the pump had been located under the coach!
