Added Homemade Stabilizers

Took the 4 of the 8 homemade stabilizers from our old tt and re-worked the pad mounts and the upper mounts on the front and installed them on our new 5th wheel.

Fronts as always are perfect.
we have not been camping since I installed rears.

I'm too cheap to buy Bals or any other ones. Not as fancy as 'store bought' but a lot cheaper.

Still have 4 of the old ones left if anyone close to Concord, NC wants them. Will let them go real cheap, otherwise they will probably get made into something else.

My total cost for 8 was just under $100 including the Heim joints.

I'd like to keep my bals just where they came from, thank you!

Sorry about that ladies.

When I made mine up 5 years ago I didn't have my welder yet so it had to be strickly a bolt up/together set up. Now with the welder I could do the fany tube type but too cheap, better thing to spend the $ on - WINE!!!!!

Understand, so you can keep the black tank functionable. I just prefer to have a little tangible evidence afterwards, however asinine it is.
