Smile New Forester Owners from MN/WI

Hi All:

After an exhaustive search, my partner (Dave), his mom (Georgia) and I (Dave) have purchased a 2010 Forester model 2861. I stumbled across this forum last week and have read through a lot of it so far. It seems like a great place!

Since we're ordering our coach and won't get it until mid-late February 2010, we have time to make some modifications.

Does anyone know anything about the automatic leveling jacks? Our dealer kinda talked us out of getting them by saying they're too low to the ground and may catch but Georgia is 72 and we're trying to get as many conveniences installed as we can. Any thoughts?

Also, we have heard Forest River has changed the electric step for 2010 but haven't seen it yet. Has anyone seen a 2010 Forester yet?

Thanks for letting us join. We will be making a donation and look forward to getting to know you all and the site.

Dave, Dave and Georgia

I would definatly have gone for the jacks. I have not heard of anyone having problems with them here on the group. Really beats stacking up boards in the rain to level your rig.

Although they are not a solution for every possible situation we sure do like our leveling jacks.

Here is what I did as I did not want the cost of buying the auto levers and they have worked very good for me. I ordered 4 Camco Tri Levelers from for $14.44 each + shipping might work.
