Some type of step stabilizer works wonders. I have the adjustable type. I also have a set of the Valterra stabilizers - one front and one back - under the frame in front and under the bumper in back. ALMOST eliminates any movement of the trailer.

The small one I believe is for the power tongue jack

I have never seen these before. How come if they are so easy? Are they new? The video makes it look like a breeze and why would you use anything but this product.

So what are the cons?

The only con I can think of is the price.

Con? If your tandems are close-set, you have to trim one of the levelers. But, I use them and love 'em! Even trimmed!

I believe that one of the crank handles is for the slide, and the other is for the power jack. As for the battery disconnect, when I press my button in, the battery is disconnected from most of the camper. When it is pulled out, everything has power. To charge the battery, I believe that you'd want the button pulled out. The only time I press the disconnect button in is when I put the camper in storage.

Thanks! Didn't even know step stabilizers existed but it is a great idea.

I need to buy some levelers for my week and half old camper. How easy are the levelers to use by yourself?

I think most levelers require two people - one to slowly drive the tow vehicle and one to watch the level so you know when you are level. If you'd want to do it by yourself, you might need to install some type of large bubble level on the trailer that you could see from the drivers seat.
