So, I've had this system for little more than a year.
It has been one of the best toys/tools (take your pic) that I've installed.
I'm so happy with it that I demanded
that it be installed on my replacement Classic that I ordered.
So let me try to answer some questions asked or not asked.
- It is much more
stable than any system which you've ever used (unless any of you have removed your AS's wheels and converted it to well you get the gest). Why you ask is it more stable? What do you use to stabilize a camera? A tripod of course..... can't teeter totter a tripod. And there's more. Really can there really be more? ...glad you asked. You are raising the RV high enough so that you've released the majority of weight from the suspension, which in actuality has now turned your beloved Airstream into a tripod; the two jacks behind the rear axles as you've seen in an earlier post and the tongue jack. You can actually raise it high enough to change the tires....awesome!!! It is super stable, like walking in your house stable.
- There is a method for proper deployment. (Remember, the up/down switches and a level are installed in the AS next to the entrance door)
1. Lower the tongue jack all the way down so that the rear of the AS is up in the air, saluting all the people behind you using orange lynx levellers
This way, in case the ground is uneven, there will be ample space for the jacks to pivot down (read be vertical) before they start to extend (raise) the AS.
2. Raise one side at a time, enough so that you feel the trailer being raised a bit.
3. Go back to the tongue jack and raise it so it's level to your eyes, don't have to be precise yet.
4. Now, level the trailer, side to side while looking at the inside level. Sometime, I'll raise it an extra inch or so to release more weight from the suspension.
5. Go back to the tongue jack and finish leveling the AS perfectly back to front.
6. You're done!!!!
Note to all: Before raising (when you're looking to leave) the rear jacks, always lower the tongue jack fully so as to comply with number 1.
