I have JT's in the back, too (along with electric rear stabilizers that came on the trailer). Most sets of JT's I've seen have 4 bars for the front and 2 for the back.

I've had JT's on my last 3 fivers ... like said "wouldn't leave home without them". All my kits came with 8 arms and mounts for both sides front and back. Depending on your unit, you may have to buy an 8' piece of angle iron to attach widthwise to the rear frame to provide something substantial to mount the rear inner arms to.

Will these work with lippert electric stabilizers or can they only be mounted on scissor jacks?

As far as I know, the answer to both questions is YES. I have a set attached to the foot pads of my Lippert electric stabilizers. The JT's StrongArm stabilizers website shows pics of bars attached to scissor jacks as I remember.

[QUOTE=Michael4017;1060356]I have a travel trailer with bunks in the back that always shakes in the front when kids go to the bathroom. I have the BAL X-chocks and have 4 stabilizer jacks on the trailer along with a power tongue jack. Would the strong arms be the best option to fix the bounce?

I purchased BAL Lockarms because they can be purchased in pairs rather than 4 or 6. I just saw a pair on Amazon for around $76. They're similar to Strong Arms although a little lighter. They made a substantial difference on my 5th wheel.

JT's work on about anything ... yes there are similar brands that do work, but they all have lighter materials and a bit less design features as in bronze bushings and fabricated clevises. JT's will adapt to scissor jacks or the BAL (or now Lippert) electric rear stabilizers. Like I mentioned earlier ... you will probably have to go to a iron and steel business and buy an 8' length of angle iron to go crossways in the rear ... on about any TT or fiver, there just is't much to attach the inner arms to.

Quite a few forest river products are now coming with the frame mounts already installed.
