Had mine for 3 years now.

The only issue I have had is when I blew the DC breaker when I tried to do both at the same time. Reset and no issues. They blow the breaker if you try to keep cranking them after they hit their limit. They did that during my PDI...CW what are you going to do. At least I found out which breaker it was then.

I am careful to not push them too far when raising them and putting weight on them. They were not built to lift the trailer, just hold it.

There is a lot of experience with electric stabilizers around here. Some good and some bad.

We've never had problems with ours. One thing to do to prevent problems as much as possible is to keep them lubed with a good dry lube.

Didn't care if I got them or not until I used them on the new trailer. They are so quick and easy, really like them, hopefully they'll be reliable.

Been using them for 1.5 years and no issues. Use them as intended...to stabilize NOT lift. Keep them dry lubed. I will never go back to manual crank stabilizer jacks.

X2.

Use them for what they are intended, (stabilizing) and they'll last a long time and are quick and easy.

Ours have worked flawlessly on our most recent 5th wheel (rear) for over 3 years.

X2 they are stabilizers not jacks for lifting.
