Question Auto Leveling for Wildcat 312BHX or Other Xtralites?

Does anyone here have an auto leveling system on their Wildcat Xtralite? If so, which system do you have, is it hydraulic or electric, 4-point or 6-point, and how does it perform on fairly out of level ground (say up to 3 degrees or so)? I'm looking for a system powerful enough to safely take weight off the tires to the point where I could change a tire if I wanted to...similar to what you'd have on a Class A. Are any of the electric systems powerful enough to do this, or do I definitely need to look at a hydraulic system?

I have the Lippert 6 point. The motor is electric but the system uses hydraulic rams.

Yes it will work on out of level ground. If the site is outside the leg length the system retracts the legs and you get to put leveling pads or 2"x 12"under the foot to help with the leg length.

I've gotten used to it now so I can tell before I start (usually).

Yes the system will lift the whole rig off the ground or one side at a time. This happens on a side hill site where one side is higher than the other side of the trailer. Hope this helps.

I have the Lippert level up and it works great. I wouldn't buy another camper without it.

We have the 312BHX with the 4-point electric Lippert Ground Control....and it's fabulous. I think each jack is rated for 12,000 lbs and the system as a whole is rated to 20,000 lbs.

For those with a 6-point system, where did you buy it and have it installed? Camping World can only get a 4-point system, which they say is not designed to lift the trailer off the ground.

Nole-fan, did your come from the factory with it or did you add it on? We are ordering the brother of your trailer, the 312QBX, and I was thinking about the autolevel option.
