Lippert electric stabilizer jacks

I damaged my support arm on our 2014 rockwood ss and needed to order replacement parts. The arm that is suppose to be my replacement is $25 each and I needed four.

I looked more and found another part that looked similar but it was for the newer travel trailers for $5 each and looked identical.

I ordered four as the looked identical.
They came today so I went out and checked and they will fit. They look thicker and more rigid that the black originals.

So what am I missing here? Less money for a stronger part that's painted yellow? Are these arms for a unit that supports more weight?

Seems strange to me or else it's a mistake on pricing.

Just thought I'd share. Purchased from etrailer.com

Only difference is yellow.

Btw these stabilizer jacks don't "hold" weight, they are merely "stabilizers"

Which is why you probably bent one.

I threw all 8 of mine(good) in the trash and replaced with 3/4" pipe with the ends smashed, but I also reinforced the legs so I can lift the trailer without bending them. I haven't lifted it over about 2"-2-1/2" from its normal height tho.
