156277035212355.jpgNTP-STAG, one of the leading distribution companies for the RV market, is adding Equalizer Systems to its jack and levels category.

Formed in 1990, Equalizer Systems is a division of Days Corporation, a century-old family business with dealings in manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, and export packing. Equalizer Systems serves the RV, trailer and specialty vehicle markets with hydraulic and electric lifting, leveling and slide room solutions.

Serving more than a dozen leading OEMs, Equalizer Systems' product line includes a variety of lifting and leveling systems for motorhomes, travel trailers and fifth wheels, as well as other truck and trailer applications. The company's EQ Smart-Level lets users level their coach automatically through a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone app and/or an in-cabin mounted control unit.

The product builds upon the company's Auto-Level systems, which use four two-way hydraulic cylinders to automatically extend and retract each leg independently during a patented sequential leveling process.

Equalizer Systems also offers a stabilizing system to eliminate leaning and swaying caused by extended slide rooms. Using a simple clamp-style mount, the Stabi-Lite requires no welding or drilling to install and employs one-touch operation.

Equalizer Systems' relationship with RV SnapPad has provided customers with wide-surface rubber pads for nearly every variation of Equalizer jack in the market. Most recently, the two companies released a new eight-inch square EQ SnapPad for horse and motorsport trailers.

NTP-STAG category manager Mark Willes says partnering with NTP-STAG will give Equalizer Systems greater brand awareness within the RV aftermarket and expand its reach through new resources.

"We are proud to partner with Equalizer Leveling Systems and excited to now offer their industry leading product line to our network of dealers," Willes says. "This is a perfect solution for our dealers who are looking to grow their aftermarket and service revenue all while improving the RV experience for their customers."
