MBS Front Stabilizers

The rear stabilizers are fairly effective, but the front could still use some support to stop the remaining movement when parked. I've looked under the front a couple of times and I'm puzzled where would be a good place to put stabilizers that would not require reaching about 2' underneath to position them carefully and avoid breaking something. That far under makes it hard to crank them up as well as install and remove such as when the ground is wet. Has anyone had any luck with this? Thanks!

I have not tried anything on the front, but I have thought about it.

I'd probably look to the front wheel jacking points as a likely spot...

I'll have to look for those - need to learn where they are anyway. Not that I'll ever be jacking this thing up! (Hopefully not!) I also need to look for that supposed jack under the floor on the passenger side. RV is in the driveway charging up so I can do this tomorrow with luck.

I installed big foot stabilizers on the front of my Solera last year, the location for them is hard to get into but it can be done. If you go into Quadra's web site they have all the info about the front stabilizers on the Sprinter chassis.

What was the part# for the front stabilizers? Did it take long for install?

Part #QE12PT-12, Two point system, 12" stroke cylinders, two point pump system W/ weather proof control box. I wasn't able to work on it at my home at the time due to street work so I had to work on it else where which caused it to take longer to do. I'd guess if the Irish guy (Murphy) stays out of the work it could be done in 4-6 hours

I am about to proto a 4 point leveler from Quadra here shortly. I'll let you know how it goes. My only concern is a 70 lbs (net) weight gain over the 2 point system.

MBS Front Stabilizers

Wonderful! In my opinion, a 4-point leveling system would be a huge marketing plus and would be worth the weight. Adding another two-point unit would not be that helpful. I'm not sure the feasibility of leveling using two 2-point systems (such as adding a 2" block under one side - not sure that would even work) but I can guarantee owners will try whether or not told not to. ;-)
