Question Love Boat Syndrome

Hey folks....Just got back from a small outing and have been dumbfounded by the
"Love Boat " syndrome...Cut to the chase....My back stabilizers are parallel with TT.
My front stabilizers are perpendicular to the TT.....Am I the only lucky guy who needs to reposition my rear stabilizers?????? At the lake this week,I could'nt find any other
RV with same setup.....Tnx Folks. n8oyx-------Brian

Maybe I'm not firing on all cylinders tonight, but I don't understand the 'love boat' reference.

Pretty rarely on Sundays!

I'm guessing that the love boat thing refers to the trailer rocking, the universal sign to not come knocking!

I know the set up he has as mine has the same odd setup


I level at the front first then the rear and put a bit more pressure on the front stabilizers and the boat goes away. It has never been as stable as my old playmore but I can get fairly close with the added pressure on the front.

Why they ever made those stabs that way I guess only an engineer can answer

I'm bettin you just need a bigger truck! Get a dually, it will probably solve ANY sway in the tow vehicle.

Other than that, I'd go with what Mike suggests. He's purty smart like that......

Same setup here, i was told the angled stabilizer helps to eliminate front to rear as well as side to side movement....

Thanks guys...I just wondered why I had one of the few rigs with such an odd
setup....Appreciate all the tips...tried to set up the back stabilizers a little tighter.
It still rocks from to side to side. no movement from front to back. After a while it gets a little annoying.
