RV Slideout Stabilizers Work Great

I purchased 2 pairs of Husky 81080 slide out stabilizers and was surprised how much they took out the rock and roll of my 2703WS when someone walks on the floor. They are extremely easy to install and remove. Just make sure your knees are flexible enough to squat while placing the stabilizers under the slide out rails.

And hope the trailer jacks don't settle and put the slide in a bind or have a flat tire while parked. Slide out stabilizers can cause you a big headache if the trailer settles any at all.

X3. The dealer who sold us our last two campers advised us not to use them. You're better off using jack stands in front of and behind the tires.

Most likely the owner's manual also advises against them.

I'd invest in some cheap screw jacks to place on the frame under the slide in case it settles any. Less likely to get in a bind that way.
