Distance between landing gear

I am not home and need to know what the distance is between the landing gear on an 8289WS.

Thanks for the help.

I just measured mine. The distance between the legs (measured from the outside of the larger non-moving leg sleeve) is 59-7/8"

Thanks RodeoGeorge. I am pricing a set of JT Strongarms and there are two choices on inside to inside. Under 58" and over 58".

I installed the Ultra Fab Eliminators. Happy with them. The standard kit worked fine with our spacing.

Thanks RodeoGeorge, are you happy with the results? Can you tell a difference? I have a friend in the rv parts area and he has given me a very good price on the UF Elimimator set.

The Eliminators have definitely stabilized the RV. As to how much, that remains to be determined. The true test will be when the DW goes to bed and I'm still up walking around. Then we'll know if it has her seal of approval. LOL

Pictures of my install in this album (lumped several in the same album so you'll have to weed through it:

Thanks for the info RodeoGeorge. They were delivered last night. Total $240.00, I couldn't pass that up. It will be a couple of weeks before I can install them.
