Sorry to respond late, but the tripod is OK and removes about 50% of the wobble. The Jack braces are much better. I purchased "Plug-It-Right"; cheaper and lighter than JT's, and just as good. I installed them myself (front and rear). Good for about 70 to 80% of the wobble. But, these units are not nearly as good as the built-in 6 way stabilizer jacks that are available on new units and after market. On new the cost is within reason and I would not buy a new FW without them. Aftermarket are too expensive.

Sorry I did not post earlier. Enjoy your new toy.

I use a tripod (Fast Jack). It's easy to use and really helps to minimize movement. We can fell a big difference.

We use a tripod...heavy duty one, since our dealer stopped carrying the light weight aluminum types after he said he had five returned because they buckled. Not only do we use it while camping for stabilization, we keep it on the king pin here at home (we keep 'er in the back yard on shore power) because we can, and do, LOCK it on the pin.

No it won't stop a determined thief, but it'll slow them down.


If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
