Tugger now Motorhome
I had a MA-VE system fitted to my Bailey 75-2 by Gliderite. Three trips to Liphook from South London and also a visit to my home by importers TowTal and they just could not get the system to work properly. They never got either my Samsung S7 or Samsung tablet to pair and operate the system through Bluetooth. Eventually I had the system removed and refund issued. I parted friends with Gliderite and their staff who did their utmost to get me a functional system. I then had Rosmia fit a E&P system with hardware remote included. They fitted VB Comfort Air to the rear at the same time. I had one rear jack fail and that was replaced under warranty by Rosmia. The system has otherwise been a delight to use and I would recommend hydraulic levellers to anyone. I was an early adopter of MA-VE and taken in by their slightly cheaper offering. I suspect the system is more sorted now although I still hear complaints about Bluetooth pairing on the internet grapevine. Give me a hardware remote anyday. My chassis is ALKO and they have acquired E&P since my system was fitted. To me that is the rubber stamping of an excellent reliable system. Had I have been north of Watford I would have gone to SAP as their reputation for E&P installations seems to be the stuff of legend.

Ma-Ve was on our van when we bought it - only used it on site in anger once due to Covid, but used it to 'relieve' tyres whilst parked on our drive. Has a wired control panel above the hab door and can also use the App on my Android phone.
10/10 from me !

That was bad luck. Mine has a hardware control and by an app and both work perfectly. It was no cheaper than E&P and I only picked it because it was the closest installer and a 3 year call out warranty rather than the 2 years return to base installer.

EP for me everytime, forget the app and go with the trusted system and installers

I have 2 controls, 1 fixed in the garage and the other a remote, the pump is mounted underneath on the chassis in its own polycarbonate box so out of the way.
It’s been a godsend tbh 👍

MA VE may be a good system, but you need to have these things fitted by someone who has fitted many before. Gliderite may know better by now, but they appeared to have very little experience a few years ago.
E&P has, I believe, been fitted to many more vans so I'd expect it to have much better pedigree.
