RV stabalizers

I have read a lot on this site about how to help the rocking of our trailers but I have yet to see this in any comments. While searching camping worlds internet sale I noticed these universal rv stabalizers. Anyone used these? Reviews make them sound pretty helpful. Just thought I would share the link

I fixed your link for you.

And yes, I've used them. They made no appreciable difference when used cross-ways just in front of the axles. I might try moving them to the rear to help my rear stabilizers.

(Shrugs)

Seems nothing that I do helps my shaking trailer. But at 41', I'm not sure a whole lot can be done...

try b & l stabalizers. we have a 40 ft. saber and they work great for the side to side and front to back. but i am wondering if i could move the rear jacks to the middle of the trailer for the up and down movement?

shortstack1230 - we have "UltraFab Eliminators" which are essentially knock offs of the JT's StrongArms. It's the same concept as the B&L Stabilizers (stabilization via triangulation).

Here's what I've tried so far:

Ahh... but there is something you can do! unbolt your axles and drop the frame to the ground!

A big one... but you will need an even BIGGER one to put the axles back on...

But to the ops question, I dont feel that those will work very well... You wont be able to get enough lift with those wimpy legs.

The best solution I have found for a TT is to get another set of stabilizer jacks and place them between the axles on the frame and pick up some of the weight off of the tires. SOME not all... This will help take the bounce of the suspension out and help with the shaking/bouncing problem... also works in case of a tire failure you could lift the side of the camper (if you have the appropriate sized jack/stabilizer. )
