Anyone using this Leveling system?

I was looking at this leveling system for my Montana and was wondering if anyone is using it? I was also wondering if it even works? I think it would be nice to know how much you have to bring up the one side to be level.

Like you I thought it would be helpful to know what was needed from the cab of the truck but ended up with a level mounted on the trailer side hitch. One line off level equals 1".
If you decide to buy it keep us informed how it works.
Also, I seen them on ebay for 157.00 with free shipping.

I purchased a .99 app for my iTouch called Clinometer. I make the iTouch into a precise leveling device that tells the precise degrees of out of level you are. It's kinda fun, use the straight side for one method. Then just lay it flat and it is a bubble level telling the exact amount of degrees out of level. For .99 it has been a fun "tool" to own, helpful too. It is not a remote but would give you exact readings for leveling.

If you have shares in a battery company buy it. They work OK but eat AA batteries and about once a month or 6 weeks they need to be changed. I would not recommend that you buy one unless they have improved the electronics.

Anybody have a problem getting hitched back up after raising one side of the coach relative to the TV?
Saw the guy across from me at Wytheville KOA in Virginia (SOB) have a terrible time. I didn't want to gawk but it looked like he had at least 3 2x10 under each wheel on one side and ended up putting some blocks under same side of his dually.

There are still people that have old style hitches that do not swivel side to side, thus if you have too big a difference between the level of the trailer and truck everything is in a bind and you can't hitch or unhitch without putting blocks under the truck too.

Yes, I've had that problem. In my case the ground was not even on the same plane at the truck as at the fw. The resulting angle was so severe I had to have boards under one wheel of the truck to get unhitched, and then to hitch up again. Even the rocker hitch wouldn't rock enough. Backing the truck up onto boards on just one side casues the hitch to swing in an arc as it nears the pin. It's not easy lining up the hitch and pin when the hitch is moving sideways.
