Reese revolution and king pin stabilization

Hello all,
So we have the 4 point auto level on the fifthwheel (rockwood 8295ws) and although it is good, DW would like it more solid. I know it is about 50/50 on whether or not those tripods work to help keep the rig stable. My question is if anyone uses them with the revolution hitch? I am wondering because the hitch pivots at the camper, would this help much at all? I have the BAL X-chocks which did help but I am not sure about the tripod. The other thing I could try is the cross stabilizer bars that attach to the drop down legs.

The kingpin tripod would not work well with a Revolution type hitch as the pivot point would allow movement rendering the tripod useless. (even more useless than they already are)

You are better off exploring JT's StrongArms or SteadyFast systems.
