Electric TT Stabilizers

I'm puzzled about how the electric stabilizers work on my Salem Hemisphere 292Fk. Both sides appear to be driven by one long threaded shaft but the vertical travel appears different depending on the contour of the ground. Is there some kind of slip clutch at work or something else I'm not seeing?

The action is taken at the hinges. It does allow for uneven ground.

I finally figured out how mine work. The horizontal base member consists of 2 C channels with one sliding inside the other. The horizontal motion of the inner channel compensates for the difference in vertical travel of the two legs. Took me a while to see this.

While I like convenience, I don't like how the trailer moves side to side.
