3 years rear electric Stabilizers on fifth wheel, no problems. Keep in mind that they are stabilizers and not designed for jacking.

Our Flagstaff has them and we also use steady fast system. My older 2011 Rockwood had regular manual jacks, as have every RV we've owned. There is no way I can get the Flagstaff still! Mine are going to be replaced w/HD scissor jacks.

You need to realize that they are just stabilizers and not levelers. Our 2015 Rockwood 2703WS came with automatic reseting fuses. If you put too much pressure on the leveler they pop and then reset after about 10 seconds. You can also buy fuses with this feature at many auto parts stores.

Regarding the sway issue, we do have some movement with the stab jacks deployed but since there are only two of us it is not a major problem. I am looking at getting a couple of lightweight screw jacks to place under the frame between the wheels which has been suggested in another post. My problem is that I am very near max weight for TV and TT and must watch every pound.
