Frequently Asked Questions

How heavy is Caravan Levelling by EP Hydraulics

The level C Compact system comes in at comes in at 18.84kg, thats less than 2/3 rds the weight of most single axle movers! The Level C Full system is 19.08KG, this is everything apart from the corner steadies, when we factor these in, we must subtract the weight of the original steadies we remove so the net corner steady weight is 1.24kg or for four is 4.96kg. Therfore 19.08kg add 4.96kg gives a TOTAL 24.04kg of additional weight to the caravan and to give some perspective, thats 36kg less than Truma's XT4 motor mover!

What is the maximum angle the caravan levelling system will auto level to?

Up to approximately 5% or 3°
However, this question has no hard and fast rule due to several variables such as the make and model of the caravan. For example, the distance between jacks fitted on the axle, the stroke of the caravan jack and the available stroke of the Al-Ko big foot corner steadies. 

What if I forget to retract the caravan levelling system before leaving?

E&P advise that you can not auto-level on a gradient higher than 5%. However, this depends on variable factors such as the make and model of the caravan, the chassis weight and height and the nature of the slope. If needs be, you can use the manual function on the remote control, using the inbuilt level indicator and placing suitable wooden blocks at the relevant jacking points to aid tricky levelling situations, but be sure to site the blocks squarely under the footplates, to avoid damaging them.

What is the current draw?

Normal conditions = 11 amp + 1-2 seconds at 17 amp when over pressurising to ensure all jacks are fully retracted.
Extreme conditions (e.g. Cold weather) = 17 amp.

How long does the system take to level the caravan?

120 seconds, maximum, but often less than a minute.


What happens if the caravan battery runs flat?

The caravan levelling system requires a fully charged battery to operate. It is an auto levelling device needing power, just like a fridge, heating system, or motor mover.
Our system software is designed to protect the battery and, therefore, if the battery voltage is low then the hydraulic levelling system cannot be used and an alarm will sound on the control panel to indicate this. In the event your battery voltage is too low, you can hook up to the site electrics, or your towing vehicle to recharge it.

What is the minimum battery voltage required to operate the Levelsystem?

12 Volts. The E&P Hydraulics Level C system takes its power from the caravan leisure battery and it doesn't take much when compared to motor movers. Our system software is designed to protect the battery and, therefore, if the battery voltage is low then the hydraulic levelling system cannot be used and an alarm will sound on the control panel to indicate this. In the event your battery voltage is too low, you can hook up to the site electrics, or your towing vehicle to recharge it.


Is the warranty of my caravan affected by installing the levelsystem?

The warranty of the caravan manufacturer is not affected by the fitting of the Level C system. Caravan manufacturers fit corner steadies to their vans in line with guidance and approval from AL-KO, who supply the corner steadies. AL-KO have tested the E&P system and given their approval for our corner steady in a report which determined that the Level C system actually prevents too much force being applied through the corner steadies, when compared to a standard corner steady, thereby helping to protect the floor of the caravan.
The E&P Level C system is compatible with all makes and model of caravan and is offered by various OEM’s as standard fitment, or as an optional extra, as well as being offered in the aftermarket only through our approved Partners.

What if I forget to retract the caravan levelling system before leaving?

Whilst it is you, the user, who is responsible for ensuring the caravan is safe to tow, this scenario is nearly impossible because you would likely be unable to hook up the caravan to the tow vehicle with the jacks down. However, it is always good practice to walk around the caravan and visually check that all jacks are fully stowed before leaving site.


Can I stand inside the caravan when the system is in operation?

No, the caravan needs to be empty, even if it's raining! Having people moving within the caravan will cause the level sensor to go out of synchronisation. 

It is also important that you keep watch on what is happening around and underneath the caravan, so get everyone involved in checking for hazards. 


What happens if I lose the removable touchpanel or the battery runs flat?

You can still auto-level or auto-retract the system from the touchpanel housing in the event you lose or damage the touchpanel. The touchpanel has a long-life rechargeable battery that will automatically recharge as soon as it is placed back in the housing.

Replacement touchpanels can be ordered from an E&P Hydraulics Accredited Partner if required.


Will the Levelsystem lose pressure over time?

No, it is a closed loop hydraulic system.


Can I store my caravan with the Levelsystem deployed?

Yes, this is useful for protecting tyres during long periods of storage, but it will not completely stop tyre degradation. It can also help prevent a sticking handbrake and make the caravan more secure against theft. If you are leaving the system deployed for a long period, please use a silicon-based protective spray on the axle jacks, to prolong their durability.


Can I use the jacks to help me fit security devises to my wheels?

Yes, this aids the fit of wheel security devices greatly. However you, the user, are responsible for ensuring the caravan is safe to lift and that it is adequately supported with axle stands if any work is being carried out under the caravan. Please do NOT work under a caravan if the only method of support is the E&P Levelsystem.


What is the difference between the full Level C system and Level C Compact?

The full Level C system will level the caravan using two hydraulic jacks, mounted to the axle, and steady the caravan using four automatic hydraulic corner steadies. This levels the caravan from side to side and front and back automatically. The Compact version of the system using your existing corner steadies and simply levels from side to side. You would still need to deploy the corner steadies manually.

How long does it take to install on my caravan?

The levelling system installation can take upto 8 hours, depending on the caravan in question. You would therefore be required to leave your caravan with the Installer for a full working day (08:30 - 16:30 typically). Our Installation Partners will happily advise on any travel and accommodation questions you may have.
