    Electric Stabilizer Jacks

    Where is the fuse for the electric stabilizer jacks located? I know the landing gear is in the front storage box, but what about the rear jacks?

    Re: Electric Stabilizer Jacks

    I believe that the fuse for it is also right off the battery...30A for the front gear, 20A for the rear set. I had an issue with the rear gear at pick-up and they checked the fuse there which was good. The problem ended up being a bad connection at the switch.

    Do they work independent of each other, or does one wait on the other after it touches the ground? I have zero experience with these

    Re: Electric Stabilizer Jacks

    If I understand your question correctly, the rear jack on the 337 works the same as the front landing gear...I think it really the same unit with shorter travel...just fused at a lower amps as you're not trying the lift the camper as you do with the front landing gear. You'll still have to manually adjust for uneven ground side to side. Did you find the 20A fuse by the battery?

    Re: Electric Stabilizer Jacks

    I checked the front compartment this afternoon. There's two in-line fuse holders right by the battery...the fuse holders are marked 30A but have a 20A fuses in them. One is for the front landing gear, the other for the rear gear.

    Re: Electric Stabilizer Jacks

    I will check for the fuse Dave. The jacks look just like Ground Control Auto Leveling. I am up in the air about these, they might be more work than I thought initially. For sure you will have to bend over and pull pins, maybe place blocking under them. It is what it is, so I am sure it will become natural after a few trips.

    Re: Electric Stabilizer Jacks

    I agree...reaching under the camper to pull the snap pins on the rear gear or adding blocking is a 'get down on you knees' kind of procedure...can't see a way to avoid it.

    BTW as we're discussing the front and rear gear, I'm installing a set of SteadyFast stabilizers that I had on my previous camper. If you push on a corner of the camper, front and rear, you'll see quite a bit of movement. The add-on stabilizers will eliminate most of that. There'll be one across the front, a second from a front leg back to the frame. As the spare is located between the rear gear, I need another plan for the rear. I'm thinking that I could install one manual scissor jack at the rear on one side and run the third arm from the foot of it to the frame on the opposite side. It's an easy install...just need a little warmer weather.

    Re: Electric Stabilizer Jacks

    That sounds like a cool mod, keep me updated on how that goes.

    Re: Electric Stabilizer Jacks

    The SteadyFast stabilizers made a huge difference on our last camper which would be considered a lightweight. The Reflection feels much more solid moving around in it, but still could be improved and I have the a system available on throw on it. I used to also set-up a jack stand on each side just behind the axles to take the suspension movement out...don't need that with the rear gear on the 337. I may also figure out some kind of support under the stairs to make them more solid when set-up...a little too much flex for my liking.
