Anyone who wants to align a motorhome or a camper horizontally or horizontally in order to optimize the comfort is usually dependent on jacks. The goal is always to have that motor home stable and to have a good alignment of the interior. If the vehicle is only standing on the tire, then the complete vehicle is aimed at the ground. If this surface is not straight, the interior is also awry.
Autolift system: stable position!
With an 4 column system, mostly made of electric props (rarely from hydraulic supports), the vehicle can be automatically or manually leveled quickly and easily, so that a safe and horizontal state results. This is necessary especially on uneven or sloping ground. These leveling systems increase the comfort and functionality of a camper or camper.
Lifting support system - retrofitting is worth it!
If the vehicle is not primarily equipped with an Autolift support system, retrofitting can usually take place. Here are some things to consider. Most of the jacks are folded out electrically under the vehicle and then raise it at four points. Fully automatic, the vehicle is then brought into a horizontal position, so that differences in level can be compensated (within the lifting height of the columns). These systems are available as a variant with two supports to stabilize the rear and on the other hand for even more comfort than the 4 support system for fully automatic horizontal positioning. The drive of the lifting support system via the 12V electrical system; usually very robust components and motors are installed; Weather resistance and longevity are of course guaranteed in the necessary outdoor installation. Only rarely are the systems hydraulically operated, but this reduces the maintenance effort considerably. Most can be retrofitted to all popular campers and RVs. In order to avoid overloading the chassis, the supports are stable and can only be installed at certain points. For pivoting the support under the vehicle a clear height of about the 30-35 cm is usually required so that the supports can be folded out. Then the camper moves automatically and electrically to a stable position, provided that the ground is not too slanted or uneven.
Lifting support system: technology for more comfort
Usually two tons per support can be lifted so that there is enough reserve even for heavy mobiles. The static load capacity of the supports is often significantly higher and can be up to five tons. The controlled extension of the supports protects the chassis and structure, as torsional forces caused by twisting are avoided. In addition, the tires are relieved as well as all components of the chassis in general. Before retrofitting, the compatibility with the desired motorhome chassis should be checked; installation is possible using an adapter, but requires appropriate knowledge. Depending on the system, the lifting height is between 180 - 200mm and the support length 300-450mm, whereby various extensions can be installed here.

We hope that you the info report on the topic / term Autolift system (further names / keywords: Autolift supports, support system, leveling system, 4 support system, jacks, electric props, lifting support system) has fallen from the field of autotuning. Our goal is that the largest German-language tuning dictionary (Tuning Wikipedia) and to explain tuning terms from A to Z easily and understandably. Almost every day we expand this encyclopedia and how far we are already can you HERE see. Soon the next one will be Tuning scene concept be illuminated by us.
