Front stabilizers

Just bought a 2015 Wildcat 327ck......... and just figured out it doesn't come with front stabilizers.

How much of a problem will this be?

5th wheels do not use "stabilizers" in the front like a TT does. You can add a stabilizing system to the front landing gear like JT Strongarms or steadyfast and the like.

Some of the earlier Wildcats 327ck had issues spare tire and battery box locations when putting on JT Strongarms. The optional stabilizer arms work well to stiffen up the RV. PM me if need help on these problems and I'll find my thread where talked about this.

Jerry purchased a pair of "X-Chock stabilizers" .....from the research he did, these look like they will do the job.


Thanks!

I installed the JT Strong Arms and use the x-chocks as well. Get rid of 95% of the movement
