Actually no. They have a single motor double jack that is nearly guaranteed to fail. The worst part is that they don't sell parts!!!

One of the first thing I did on my trailer was install the Ultra Fab PowerTwin II Electric Levelling Stabilizer. They were very powerful and worked wonders for stabilizing. I was careful not to lift my trailer too much but I never had to use blocks or anything else.

Just park, level back to front, bring the jacks down on the low side, raise, then lower the other side. Not only was it easy, my trailer was never more stable. I wrote a review on rv dot net under the user name 'skripo'.

I just pulled them off my trailer when I traded it in to buy my motorhome last week. I'd offer to sell them to you but I am in Montreal, Canada.

Don't think twice, go ahead and get them, wonderful and sturdy product.

Wow , what a way-------------

What a way to test the durability of the stabilizers. And I thought dragging my back steps was bad

Loved the heck out of them. The attachment bars are 3' long so I was actually carrying 6' of the 24' box. I did't try to put them at the ends either.

I knew that I lifted too much when my door wouldn't close properly

Was a little less cavalier after that!

Love my electric stab jacks! Have a concern with the exposed switch to operate them. Has any one considered placing the switch behind a lockable door. I raise the question as I have a small grandson that has operated every switch in the camper, he needs to see which light comes on. So far he has left the stab jack switches (front and rear) alone.

Bob, where did you get the doors/panels. Did you mount them on the side where the switches are located? Guessing there is enough wall thickness to provide som recess.

Yes...just made the hole bigger and inserted switches from back of compartments so no wire splices. Here in Quartzsite, was the only 'box' I could get local....wall thickness ..not a problem.

Thanks Bob, looks similar to the door that covers the outside shower on the side of the tt, but smaller. Looks lie another mod added to the mod bucket list. Deploying mod ideas from this forum could become a full time job. Who said retirees have plenty of time on their hands. Besides being retired with a pickup, have plenty of jobs to volunteer for. Friends I did not know existed, seem to find me. Love it!,
