On a motorhome, I don't know if you can get without. For a fifth, IMO, one more thing to go wrong.

I've got a 14 crusader 315 and wouldn't be without it. Best thing they've came up with yet in my opinion.

My thought would be depends on your camping.
If you camp frequently then yes it is.
If your a seasonal camper like myself then the auto level is rarely used, once again like myself.
We use ours twice a year, mind you I really do like the ALS.

I have the Lippert Ground Control 3.0 electric 4 point system on a 2016 35' 5er. I would never ever ~~ not ever ~~ be without it. I keep a 2x8 for the ground and adjust with plastic blocks so no leg has to over extend. Rarely does one extend more than 6". Usually ends at 0.01 degree off both tilt and angle. Auto-level YES, power stabilizers I'd not bother with.

I found it crosses into "worth it" territory at about age 60, and increases in value every year after.

"Is auto leveling worth it" is a bear drawn to honey ... does bark protect a tree ... does the sun rise in the East ... hell yeah! I too fought the auto level option boasting of how well I could just haul some 2X8's around and save that money for diesel fuel. Then I bought my Silverback with the auto level ... easy peezy press the button and watch it work its magic ... no more "spirited" conversations with the better half while leveling manually.

Perhaps we have a terminology issue here. I have always had hydraulic levelers, just not automatic ones. Would I work with jacks and timbers...no way. Do I need it to decide when I am level? Not that important.
