Recommendation of a tripod stabilizer for 5th wheel

The long winter months of dreaming of camping has begun! With that trying to find a solution for the shake (side to side).

I agree. Gave the tripod away after the JTs installed.

I have a couple tripods I can sell you! I couldn't use the JT's because of having hydraulic landing gear, which required more modification than the bolt on system for electric. That said, it does take up a little storage room, but they do work. I have a steel one and aluminum one that I no longer need.

I use an aluminum tripod and it takes a lot of the 'shake' out of the unit. The trick to the tripod is to set it up right and tight. The aluminum unit is so much lighter to handle than the steel unit and it provides the same level of support as the steel unit.

I bought this one just to make the bedroom a little less shaky but I haven't used it yet.

Ultra-Fab Products 19-950001 Steel King Pin Tripod Stabilizer

I have a 6 point hydraulic Levelup system so most of the camper is solid.

So, we two hydraulic round posts in the front with no holes. Can the JTs be installed?
