has anyone used the JT Strong arm on their 5th wheels?? got a 8289 WS installed the Reico 4 point leveling system that works pretty good but still have some instability at the campsite,,,,, the strong arm is a triangular stabilizing system, looks great on videos, but I'm a skeptical S.O.B.

Works very well on mine. I also brace the front axel with jacks to eliminate the bounce.

We had the dealer install JT's on our Sabre 5th wheel and they really help.

Also check the ULTRA-FAB Eliminators.

I have them on mine (same principle as the Strong Arms) and cost considerably less at the time I bought mine.

I have a write up on installation somewhere in my Mods post.
