I haven't got steadies fitted to my nuevo but there was a good 'tenner for a tip' in the latest MMM....

After winding down the steadies, lay the wheelbrace over the clutch/brake/gas pedals, this should remind you to wind 'em back up again before departure!

Haven't got any on mine. It was one of the selling points as far as my son was concerned as it used to be his job to wind the ones on the caravans we had.

wow Petec you've got a lot of leters after your name - obvously a well travelled type

It is as you say much cheaper to turn the van into the wind, alternatively find a nice big tugger and hide behind him. or some trees - anything to act as a baffle for the winds

it's all part of the joys of m'homing

He sadly died about 23 years ago when I was still using my Carawagon.
He did licence the patent but I don't know to whom, his name was Mervyn Williams, maybe a trace on tinternet will help.

It maybe isn't a good idea to leave your email up there on an open forum Arv. You might want to contact vs-admin to see if they can remove it.

Unfortunately that's an old post n bigfoot hasn't been around since 2012.

So, are you involved with the self-levelling invention?

I saw someone in Córdoba trying to use theirs (I assume new to them). After seeing the MH raised to its maximum only to crash to the ground (several times - slow learners!) I vowed I would never have the system!
