    Stabilization while camping

    Has anyone installed JT strong arm stabilizer jacks to their RV? I'm just trying to minimize the rocking/shaking motion while we are walking around inside. Thanks

    We have the Steadyfast system on our 337 and it works great. Very similar in design but check them out before you buy. http://www.steadyfast.com/

    JT Strongarm and Steadyfast stabilizers are very effective. Use either and a set of X chocks (locking up the tires), and you're going to do pretty well--if you have rear stabilizers.

    Thanks for the input and the link. We are currently in Goshen, In. And have an appt. at Lippert to check the axles and bearings on our 303 this Thursday - I thought I might have them do it then if it made sense.

    JT strongarms here. Helped a lot. Our 337 has the rear stabilizers right behind axles, so still have a little movement, especially when teens jump around on rear wall couch. Use a universal rv stabilizer under rear bumper, rock solid now. Your landing gear is at the rear I believe, so JT should work great for you.

    Well I have an appointment with Lippert in Goshen this Thursday (16th), to look at axles and bearings that are spewing grease, and asked them to add the installation of the JT strong arms. Also contacted GD about the"dreaded 2/3 black tank burp" that was mentioned, and hope to get that in on Wednesday. Thanks for all the comments.
