So it's 'er indoors and 'im outdoors then, I think I'll just call you Tramp it's shorter

Thanks for the explanation, I assumed it could weigh more. Clearly, you’re perhaps a bit more adventurous when it comes to setting up for the night, I tend to look for as level as possible.

Never yet met a Yank I couldn't take an immediate dislike to, and the way this forum is going I’ll add those a bit northwards too.

Welcome back Les - and thanks for some interesting insights into levelling jacks. Have you decided which ones to go for yet?


Regards,
John

If only I could think of an original, witty signature . . . this is where it would be . . .

Practice before you deploy in public!

I was on the aire in Córdoba last year and was royally entertained by someone using the levellers - they'd get one side way up, out of kilter, only for it to slam back to earth. Again and again - not kind to the chassis!

Hi mate, Yes I am going for the EP ones, I have had 2 sorts before these and Goldschmidt the EP ones were by far the best.

I don't know what type they were using but they definitely weren't EP you only press 1 button and they adjust until perfectly level, No one side up etc etc.
I have had them on 2 previous units and 1 other type and none did that, one unit I had a Fleetwood bounder had 6 legs on and they all went up together then just finely adjusted
