CYA policy. Some people wouldn't understand that hydraulic shears are used to cut scrap steel. Imagine a locked stabilizer and hydraulic cyclinder vs LCI frame with a person not knowing when to stop.

Don't have auto level on my camper but could see a holy nightmare if you had it set up with stabilizers and accidentally the relevel button got pushed and it went thru a cycle. I hear it's not supposed too but what if. I will bet the stabilizer will be damaged but the frame will be worse off.

I don't think they clamp down tight enough to to do damage to the frame. They would break long before that would happen. The problem had to do with the cylinders themselves. Never really understood what the problem actually was with it, but I think it is listed on their website. I also know of a set that was installed by Lippert on a level up system in Goshen, so who knows.

Here's what we use: BAL - Innovative Products for the RV Industry

It's lightweight, easy to set up and works real well for us. I typically leave the nose of our rig a pinch high until I have the tripod in place & then bump down the landing gear 2-3 times to firm it up. We then go set the rear stabilizers after that.

We might have installed another system, but would have had to relocate the spare tire as it is between the front legs of the landing gear. We tried this tripod instead & so far we're satisfied...even though we still do get some shake...we can live with it.

I bought a tripod first. It helped some. Put on JT Strongarms and now don't use the tripod.
