I had actually looked at that since I have an each pair of scissor jacks laying around. Unfortunately the LP pipe runs right down the bottom of the frame rail and there are 3 Ts right in front of the forward most axle.

Maybe a plumbing job is needed. The action from the springs will not go away with out supporting the center of the trailer. Hope it works for you.

I'll report back afterwards.
we just purchased our second set of these and they work... thus the second set.

I was thinking about this at work today. This weekend I think I will take a look and see how much of a PITA it will be to re-plumb the gas line. The other idea that I thought of was to see if I could just build a bracket to go around the gas pipe.

On our Passport there is almost 29' between the front and rear jacks. Placing a jack just forward of the front axle, which would be as close to center as I could get.

Were using the SteadyFast DW loves them. Shipping and their customer support was outstanding. As far as the instructions for installation super easy to understand and easy to follow. SteadyFast: 5th Wheel and RV Trailer Stabilizer

I to vote for the steadyfast. Well engineered, ease of use, works very well. Only 3 bars instead of 6 that some use. Install was not bad at all.

Good to hear. We had to cancel last weekend's trip but we'll be heading to the same park on labour day weekend and will pick up the stabilizers then.

Last trip I asked DW to try walking in the trailer while I lay in bed. She walked to the back of the trailer then side-stepped back to the front. Regular walking was much more keenly felt, which suggests to me that I place the stabilizers laterally instead of longitudinally.

We shall see!

Just purchased one for the backend of camper. Had a springboard effect back there with bunk beds and kids moving. This in conjunction with jt's should shore things up. Amazon has a decent price at $45 including prime shipping. Click image for larger version
