YUP! VERY simple to level side to side with a couple boards. Raise to slightly above level with front jacks than use rears to bring to level so there is a bit of tension for stability.

Take that system any day for it's simplicity and dependability.

Get the RV so it's level and stick these on and use later for adjustment.

If the 2010 he's looking at is like my 2011 the auto-leveling isn't like the new ones.
Mine has a hand held monitor that shows how much off level it is. You then hit the front jacks or door side or off door side lever to level.

By the way I also installed bubble levels on mine.

We have seen both of them now. The 2008 was a shambles! It had been damaged pretty badly on the back bottom.

Interior: the side panel on the rear of the coach was rotten.

2010: Beautiful, but had a musty odor which led to the floor having been wet in the same area as the 2008, so when we lifted up a computer hutch, it was moldy on the bottom. Seller said he would do mold remediation and find the source of water intrusion.

I also would pass on both. We want nothing with water leak problems and certainly no mold problems.

We have definitely walked away from the 2008!! That was a no-brainer!!

This problem seems to be common with the MS. I has posed this question and one person replied with how they fixed theirs.

Narnia, think about what you just wrote, that you found a twelve year old and ten year old RV, same brand that water damage under a window. And you suspect it was a design flaw....
I'm not sure that you will find an RV that you would be satisfied with. Honestly, these things (all brands) take ALOT of maintenance. Water leaks abound on RV's that are towed thousands of miles over less than stellar highways. All brands are going to have a leak now and then.

I want to second that. To have a 5th wheel you must either be a handy man that understands them or have a big fat wallet. As to the OP. you are looking at the wrong stuff. Never mind the fridge, how are the axles, brakes springs alignment? Thats the stuff that counts. If you want a good used 5er find one from a private owner who can show you a big fat folder of receipts for the stuff he has repaired or had repaired. I wouldn't touch the one sitting on the lot for six months with a cracked rear cap. And I know where to look for the leaks and repair the damage but unless its sitting in a desert somewhere there is likely a lot of water damage. As to resale you must buy wholesale (what do you think the one with the craxcked cap will bring at auction) and sell retail. Good luck with that. Hope this helps.

If you have mold, you probably have rot somewhere in there which is keeping wood wet. Mold remediation, done properly, is quite expensive. Just wiping it down with bleach doesn't do it. You need to remove the source of it. Ask to see a copy of the plan and estimate for the mold remediation. You need to be sure that it will be done by a remediation specialist to be sure it is done properly. I'd be interested to hear how the seller responds to this. If there is mold on the bottom of the computer hutch, the plywood under the carpet is most likely wet.



Personally, I would pass on both of them.
