What a difference

After having a fith wheel for many years and now a tt the same issue has always come to play and that is shaking and bouncing when some one is walking or even simply turning over in bed . Having a tripod on our fith wheel and tire locking chocks between the tires did help a little but never really made that much of a difference. So after our first season in the vibe i set out to solve this issue before our second. Research and more research witch led two products in witch I finally decided on the steady fast system. After ordering I told my neighbor ( who is a self claimed camping expert on all things past and present ) he laughed and preceded to tell me that I probably just gave away my money and I'd been better off installing 4 more scissor jacks for a fraction of the price. 4 days later the system came. I installed it in four hours then invited my neighbor back over to tell me what he thought. I set the camper up like I would normally camping without locking the system in place, I had my 10-year-old daughter ,wife and myself along with my super skeptic neighbor all together in the rig walking about as we would normally .noticing any and all swaying and jouncing. Then I went out and locked the system in place went back in the camper and by the expression on my neighbor face I could tell I made the right decision. Skeptic no more His kit will be here on Friday and I will install it on Saturday for him LOL .all I can say is the system is incredible I don't have nothing to compare to besides tripods or extra scissor jacks but I can tell you this much it took out 80 to 90 percent of all movement. Dose anyone else have this or other systems installed on their rigs as well?

Can the JT Strongarms be installed on the motorized stabilizers like those on my Windjammer?
