Turbs, This is my spare mounted between the landing gear. The tire extends out front and the JT Strong arms won't clear it.

ps tilt you head to the left.

Move the spare tire back about a foot.

I need to find where the tire bracket is mounted and see what it will take to move it back. OR could I get results with a tripod instead in the front and JTs in the back?

I looked at moving my spare tire back, and it's a matter of moving a couple bolts located in the floor of the front storage. Plenty enough room.

Why mess with a tripod when the JTs are self storing? Not logical in my feeble mind.

Just didn't check out option on what it would take to move the spare mount yet.

That reminds me of my boys when they were young and presented with a food they had never eaten before saying, "I don't like that"

Only option I can see for the "no longer needed" Tripod is a minor theft deterrent for the 5er.

If we get the strong-arms installed at Goshen, we need to have a RV flea market on Friday

Bob. Do you use a tripod with the Revolution hitch? Does it work or does the back joint love around?

I'm installing the JT strong arms this weekend. I will take before and after pics. I new to move the spare and install the adapter mount (see pic). The adapter shows a screw mount as well as weld. I plan to drill through the round landing gear foot pad and install from under/through the pad. Then attach the stabilizer arms to it. It seems to be logical way to install.

My 365 is seasonal and I have 6 jacks under it and still get some shake. I am hoping these will eliminate that. I bought them from amazon

Pics to come....
