Stabilizers

I have a 2014 Wildcat model 312 BHX, I checked into having the JT Strong Arm Jack stabilizers installed by the dealer and they told me that those stabilizers wouldn't work in the front because of the location of the spare tire and the battery box is where the stabilizers would be mounted. I need to add some sort of stabilizers to this coach because I have alot of side to side movement. Am I the only one with this problem, and does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

Take a look at steadyfast stabilizers. They might work for your application.

Get the "jack stand" type that your screw UP onto the frame.
Get four of them, two in front and two in back. You will be AMAZED at how stable it feels then.
I little bit of a pain to screw them up every night, but makes a huge difference.

I have the JB stabilizer kits installed. My Flagstaff has one of those weak rear bumpers that has a spare tire w/attachment clamped to it. Maybe you could relocate. Or, when the wife wants to bike I remove the spare tire attachment and install a hitch clamp (amazon) for the bike rack carrying assembly. I just carry the spare tire in the bed of the truck until we get to the campground then lock the spare to the JB stabilizer under the front. And I wouldn't give up the JB stabilizers for anything.
