Yes Clifford it does work . Now compared to HWH system it not as precise but I try to have a pretty level spot to start out with. It beats blocks of wood lol. On another note Clifford we talk yesterday about the water manifold I found a web site with them for around a 120 bucks .

Andy, No hurry, you know where I am until the end of the month! At some point down the road I would really like to consider the possiblities of air or hydraulic.

Stay warm!

Andy & Eileen,
Sweet coach! I have a real affection for side-by-side seating in the driver's area. If I may ask, what brand and model are those seats in your coach? Again, very nice coach! - Greg

Hey Greg

Thanks for the nice comments . They are Flexsteel as far as model I can't tell you, No paper work with them as they where in the coach when we bought it I will look again and see if I can find something. I will also post some more pic's of them. We really like them . The co pilot seat can swing out to give the driver a little more room .
