Hydraulic or Electric

We are going Thursday and ordering our new 2014 365saq.
My have and I are going over all the different options.
We are now trying to decide on the electric or hydraulic stabilizers
On the front. The hydraulic will cost a lot more.

We hardly ever move the trailer after it is set up. We haven't
moved our last one in three years.

Can people tell me the pros and cons of each and if it would be worth
the extra expense.

If your not moving your trailer a lot I would go electric, I have the hydraulic stabilizers and its 3 times faster

There have been far more complaints about the hydraulic systems than electric. For a semi-permanent setup, I would go electric, as win suggested.

Being a 13,000 lb dry weight 5th wheel I would go with the hydro system. They have a sweet auto leveling controls that can't be beat.
When you do your walk thru try the levellers and all slides a few times in front of everyone and make sure you don't see any leaks.

Now all you will need is pictures of the 5th.
