27VRL brackets under rear bumper

Does anyone know what these mounting points under the back bumper of my Super V 27VRL?

We have the same thing on our 27rlws. Not sure what for? Wondered if I could use them for a bike rack or trailer hitch receiver.

The brackets are for mounting the standard rear stabilizer jacks if your TT doesn't have the optional power stab jacks.

IMO, the power stabilizers are too far from the axles, I'm getting ready to move mine inward not further out - you don't walk against the rear wall but you do between the tires and about halfway to the rear wall; Ever notice the locations of jacks on the newer 5th wheelers, right next to the tires..

You know, I have 27VRL as well, and was just looking at those mounts yesterday scratching my head.

They are welded securely to the frame. So, in theory, you could probably fab up a bike rack or something to make use of those mounts.

As for rocking. I put the strong arm bars on both front and rear power stabs. Made a world of difference. Coupled with X wheel locks and a couple scissor jacks mid frame we get no bounce or rocking.
