We can show you at the 2011 Circling Of The Montanas.

Maybe Mynabird can post some pictures.
Ron... have not mastered posting pictures on here that I have taken. Will tackle that soon. (Just like to take pictures!)

Back to topic... so far so good! Set up & take down a couple times. Will know more next couple weeks as we keep going south!

Definitely a plus for the people who have issues with back or any other abilities no longer working!

Stiles,
I have looked all over the Lippert site and could not find the video of which you speak. I did see some still shots of some legs but just enough to get me more interested. I'll see if there is anything here on the MOC.

Thanks to everyone who has posted. It certainly sounds as if is something that I REALLY need. I will be looking forward to hearing your operational reports.
Dennis

Dennis, like I said before if you get the level-up system make sure they leave the rear stabilizers on the rig. they will help stop the tail wiggle... Dave

Nice video. I agree with everything except the part about remembering the height that we unhooked at. I think the height was right once and the others I had to adjust before rehooking. I need to call Ron at Trailaire or Jerod at Lippert to find out. Other than the height issue it works great.

By the way, Dave is right about the tail wiggle. We will try it with just the stabilizers down before reinstalling the JT again.

If you already have the JT's system and get the level-up system they will remove the front ones with the old landing gear. Keep those for spares and since they don't need to fiddle with the rears just leave them in place. They will work as they always did...

We went for a month without the back stabilizers down with no problem. I put them down
were we are parked now, we have been here for a week. I do not have JT`s and it is very solid.
Our 2 year old greatgrandson has been spending the week and he could make a stick house shake.

Dave, we removed the JTs prior to our install of the Lippert system. I will hold off before I reinstall the rears to see if the "sway" is eliminated with the OEM rear stabilizers. We did have gusting winds up to 60 mph while we were at Camp Morryde after having the Lippert system installed so I'm sure that contributed to our "swaying".

Ron, when you get ready to hook up does the height readjust to where it was when you unhooked or do you have to make adjustments?

When I get ready to hook up I press the return and go get in the truck and back up. It always is close enough
for me to back up to the hitch. I get out and take a look before backing under. About half the time I make a small
adjustment and about half the time it is right on.

Thanks Ron. Our instructions show to push the Left and Right button at the same time. It than states that the "camper will return to where sequence for auto level started...not necessarily where it was dropped off the truck". I will try the return and see what happens.

I talked to Ron at Trailaire and he said "the only unit he knows that goes back to the original unhooked height is their demo". LOL. He doesn't know why but......... So maybe you got the demo unit Ron. It seems funny that when you look at the video put out by Cedar Creek that they advertise it does return to the original unhooked height. Next stop Jarod Lippert.

FYI Stiles the brochure we received at the rally shows the special pricing is good through 10/29.

Ok, but I didn't have the brochure. I sort of tripped over this deal. That is what Jarod said to me though. It is also possible that I misunderstood him.

You can print the brochure from Fall Rally 2010 (Huge Savings At The Rally Updated).
