Has any one tried to do anything with the slowness of the landing gear. I have some freinds that we camp with and they have a cardinal with a hydraulic landing gear. Twice as fast as pp. Sound trivial but am just a weekend camper and sometimes it seems to take for ever to jack up. I geuss better than by hand.Thanks for the input.

The changover to go fast would cost a fortune.

Remember that that motor is lifting a lot of weight, and so its designed for a lot of torque rather than speed. One of the bad things about hydraulics is they will leak at some point.

I suppose you could install the 'intellijacks' and that would save you from standing there holding the button.

I just had to replace mine as I bent the legs a little and the gear started to skip. I stayed with electric jacks but each one works independent of each other. Still a little slow but I am not in a rush to go. It was pricey for them.
