OK people I've about had it with the atwood levellegs on my 2008 Tiffin Allegro 35QBA FRED. I am thinking of taking them all off and replacing them with manual scissor jacks which also have a 7500lbs capacity. What do you all think?

Upside: some workout.

Mine is push-button but I dread the day it will fail. And so are the auto-switches electric/gas in my RV.

We replaced the Atwood levelegs on our 06 Phaeton with the BigFoot system. I think each jack was rated for 17500 lbs. The problem is that Tiffin put too weak of jacks to even do the job it was supposed to do. Loved the BigFoots. Never a problem. Pricey, but great.

Thank you for the input. I was looking into big foot also, I'm just afraid of another break down, so I figured analog as possible.

To the OP:

I have pretty much the same rig as yours. We did have some hinky jacks but our biggest problem was the controller system. I replaced it with a manual system from GAMA electronics.
