Tim,

I am with you and I am pulling for Alan. It is just that it has been so frustrating when every month that goes by, it does not come to a positive conclusion of resolve.

Some people have been promised an April 16th date for their order. Still waiting...

I will definitely do that. I have gotten the impression that there were some unfilled commitments here. He keeps saying how many systems have been sold and I did question whether these were Unity installs and got a vague answer. I suspect not. I keep getting this uncomfortable feeling that all is not as it should be. We'll see.

It'd be great if we all were as skilled as ImStillLarry. Maybe we could talk Larry into launching a Bullseye levelers installation business! Larry?!?

Amen to that!
I am not so concerned right now about the installation part as I am about delivering the hardware on a timely basis. I assume if they do move as planned then they will have the ability to handle installations but if they can't provide a viable product that fits our coaches......

I am puzzled. With the number of satisfied Equalizer Systems clients growing weekly, and no significant delay in scheduling installation, why wait for something that may never happen? Yes, Elkhart is a long drive from Washington and California, but I think I read that there is at least one installer on the West Coast. And for IndyDick, it's only a 2.5 hour drive.

I would like to stay away from the hydraulics. But I agree with TStiles, there is obviously a great demand for the Bullseye concept, if it can be a reality. Would be great for someone who can actually run a business and stand by promises were to create it.

I'm no engineer so I cannot compare hydraulic v electric from a design standpoint. I do know my freshwater hydraulic boat lifts, and those of a hundred of my neighbors, have operated flawlessly for decades. I also know that ES has sold its hydraulic systems to a lot of coach manufacturers, and I think I read that LTV is going to offer the ES system as an option for 2019 Unitys. Seems like a proven bird in the hand is better than a theoretical bird in the bush. But, to each his own.

TStiles, my stated plan right now is to “eat, drink, and be merry“ not start working. Between my Unity upgrades and my 49 Chevy pickup I’m plenty busy. :-)

One thing about installation, everyone is hooked up on the fear of welding brackets to the bottom of the frame. It is so minimal and efficient. You could remove the jacks and know one would even know they were there. Ask Alan to sell the brackets and have a professional welder put them on. After that it’s just bolting on the jacks and running the wires. Still a lot of work but not rocket science.

I bolted (self install) my Bullseye levelers directly to the frame but had I seen what Larry did, the brackets would have been my first choice.

You don’t always need levelers but when needed....there great....espically in bad weather or after dark. Superior choice over the LTV stabilizer option!
