Crusader Auto Leveling System Worth it?

Going for a Crusader either 2012 without or may buy 2014 or 2015 with it, just wondering what everyone thinks of them.

Love my auto level, hate the location of the control panel inside the basement. Oh, my aching neck and knees. Wish I could find a weather proof shallow box so I could relocate the control panel in the outside wall.

Love ours, hit the auto level and hook up water, sewer, 1 minute late it's done! Not going to look forward to when it breaks. Can't remember how to level a RV without one now!

That would be the way to go, I was lucky they didn't mount mine to the inside wall. What they did was mount it on a metal bracket at the top of the side locker panel face right there looking at you. So really I just have to open the hatch and the controller is right there next best thing to a water proof panel. I have to open that door every time anyway being that's where I keep my electrical cord and hose's in that locker with my chocks. Shouldn't be hard to move it there, a lot easier then what you have described.If the wires are not long enough you can always splice them..... And yes to the OP'S question should have done it years ago.

Grayfox, This is where they located mine. To me it looks like they have that bracket, I don't think they made it.

Mine is located in the basement as well. The basement door only opens halfway as it is located underneath the bedroom slide... a real pain in the neck and knees. There is plenty of extra control panel wiring coiled up near the battery so I want to relocate the panel to the outside installed in a weather proof compartment. I have seen them somewhere on the net, so I'll have to do a search. Lippert doesn't make 'em.

My 2015 is mounted on the bracket also. The auto level is worth it, as long as it is working Mine broke on our second trip (first month of ownership) and is currently in the shop for repair
