2013 SV264 Electric Stabilizers Question

Just purchased a 2013 SV264 Surveyor Select 10th Anniversary. After extending the electric stabilizers I noticed there is alot of movement. Is there something I'm doing wrong or is this common with this unit?

They are NOT the most stable units,and dont try to hold the switch for More,this will be a blown fuse or Bent linkage! Just saying. Youroo!!

I notice that after a few hours, I can go back and put a little more pressure on the stabilizers. I think the ground settles under them and they loosen a bit. Happens almost every time. Maybe that will help.

I did that this past weekend while camping at Cajun Palms. All the sites are concrete and still the same result. Thanks...

I think this is common on the new ultralight camper. There have been lots of discussion on various make and models of campers concerning this issue. There are lots of add on gadgets to reduce or supposedly do away with the sway or bounce but I am still not happy after trying most of them. Hope you find a way to solve your issue, it may be better on your Surveyor but on my Flagstaff I think I will just have to live with the problem until I trade up.

I have the same thing- electric stabilizers in the rear and even with my UltraFab Eliminators (knockoff JT Strongarms), I still have a good bit of movement inside.

I'm going to pick up a pair of scissor jacks this spring and end up placing them near the axles. I've read that is supposed to help. It means another step to setting up and taking down- and one that is manual unlike everything else. But if it reduces some of the movement, I'm all for it.

I also installed bal stabilizers on the rear jacks.

I have virtually no for and aft or side to side movement.

Just some axle/tire bounce which is minimal.

And are you using chocks on both sides? And front and back (or between the wheels)?
