Default M-2 Build

This will be our second build. The first was a GMC toter which was small but had all the necessities except horsepower. A 4-53 turbo Detroit pulling a 15000 lb trailer will get you there but don't be in a hurry.
The new build will be a 2007 M-2 with a 350 hp Mercedes. It will have a 26 ft box. The GMC was so stiff and the budget so small, we didn't put any levelers on it. So my question for everyone, what do I use for levelers on the M-2? Budget is bigger but not stupid big!

My truck has a leveling system built by Equalizer Systems ( Equalizer Systems | A Days Company | Official Site ). My previous and first rv was an Allegro class A with HWH levelers on it. They were the kind that hinged down on a pivot and then extended. I had some problems with it. HWH used proprietary stuff that makes it impossible for any old hydraulic repair place to work on. I had to send a couple of my units in for refurbish. They did a good job fixing them I think, and the cost wasn't too bad. But I'd rather deal with a local place. My Equalizer system has only had one problem. They have a small switch that tells the controller when the jack is fully retracted up. Two of those switches failed on me. They told me they figured out those vintage switches weren't very good and have an updated switch. I replaced the two (price wasn't too bad for the switches and they look a bit different so there must be something better about them) and haven't had any problems. I would for sure contact them about a system for your truck.
