We had our first motorhome almost two years, when Janie watched someone put their steadies down, 😉 and said that's what we could do with, 😁 I said we have them. 🙄😲
She is lucky if the levellers come out now. 😁 Bob.

Must admit that I didn't even know these were fitted until a few months in to ownership, only found them whilst fitting an inverter earth strap.

Had these drop down steadies, but they were so close to the wheel to be pretty useless. Also, the heights were not flexible. I had them taken off.

As has been said several times, not sure why you would bother. Extra weight for nearly no benefit.

However, if you are set, look underneath and see how far your chassis member extends under the back of your bus. If there are mounting points towards the back, you could consider wind downs. Not the scissor types you see on tuggers, you need something like these:

or

The second type seems to be less available here. Alko Australia sells them but I haven't seen them in UK.

We have the pair in the photo with the winder. They were fitted by Alko in Southam when we had the Sawiko scooter+bike rack fitted. They are telescopic but I always put a pair of jack pads underneath each one to act as shock absorbers, especially when the ground slopes away a bit.
We think they are great, as we have a long overhang behind the back wheels.

Deep Owl I think that’s what I’m going to go for. DDJC i don’t suppose you still have them? If so how much ££ do you want including postage? Or are you within say 50 miles radius of Liverpool/Runcorn/Chester area?
Send me a PM?
Thanks Both!!

Sorry mate. When the workshop took them off, I assume they went in the bin.

I have the wind down steadies shown above with the handle. Mine are manufacturer fitted (Adria) and I really rate them. Our moho is 7.2m long and you really notice when one of you is moving about, if the other one isn’t. Although this is massively reduced having fitted air assist on the rear. Ours have a fail safe that they will fold if you drive off with them down, but only if you drive off forward. This is something we haven’t tested as I put the wind handle across the pedals to remind me that they are down.
