Stabilizer question

Just bought a 29RSWS, our first camper with automatic stabilizers. If I am in an unlevel campsite, and I have blocks under the tires on one side to level the camper, do I also need blocks under the stabelizers on that side? One button controls both front stabelizers, and if one comes in contact with the ground before the other, won't that put the camper unlevel again? Or will the first one settle while the other side continues down? I'm just trying to figure out how they work.

They should be self leveling. Once the first touches the ground, the other will lower until it touches the ground. Then it'll firm up the camper.

Thanks. I was hoping that would be the case.

Are they auto levelers or just stabilizers ?

I asked this question just yesterday to a Forest River Rep at a show in Lafayette.

If they are just stabilizers they will not level or lift the unit.

Sorry to seem confused, but I am

Wondering myself. I have the electric stab jacks on our Cherokee. backs come down together and the fronts come down together. When one hits, it just stops and waits till the other hits and then they both lift a little and I let go of the switch. They don't level...just stabilize.

I don’t think you need to put blocks under them, but I do just to keep them clean. I think these stabilizers work great — at least they do for me.

I block mine in case of soft soil and to keep them cleaner.

The 11.5" x 11.5" also gives it a bigger foot print for stability.
