    thanks for the info! We just started full timing in 5th and am curious if there is any need for the kingpin tripod and/or the wheel chocks (yes, gonna chock wheels, but the stabilizer type) if you have the SteadyFast system in place? Thx

    Steady Fast looks very similar to J T Strong Arm. We have ordered the JT option, looks like it should work for our 5th Wheel.

    Hey Jared, love watching your videos. My 24' TT has front and rear electric landing gear jacks. I'm looking at adding the Steadyfast system. However my question to you, if you know the answer,, do you think adding a set of 4 scissor jacks, in front of and behind my tires, would help with stabilization? I know part of the stabilization issue is the flexing of the leaf springs so adding the jacks I think would help eliminate that. What do you think? Thanks and keep up the great videos.

    We're looking to get a 5th wheel. I have a lot of sensitivities, and one of them is "shaking". Motion sickness type of feeling from just the home shaking from the air conditioning being on. Not in all RV's, but I have tested some that I had to step out immediately. Will the Steady Fast be helpful in stopping the shaking from AC, which for most people is unnoticeable? We are also considering that we may have to replace the AC system with a "quiet" system to reduce the problem. Any thoughts or ideas on how I can manage this problem? Thank you! (We have a serious consideration on a NuWa, and hoping to make this work!)

    I enjoy watching your videos, getting good info for my future RV life thank you. However, can you recommend stabilizers for a class-c?

    I installed JT Strongarms on my 5er. Little pricey and the install took the better part of a day but, well worth it.
    Couldn't be more pleased with them.

    Great no-nonsense video. I wish more youtubers would follow your lead. Informative, to the point and easy to understand. It also appears your wife has forgiven you for secretly experimenting on her like that. She is definitely a keeper. I have had mine for 52 years and counting.👍

    Class C w/o built in stabilizers, what would be a good option? I have slide stabilizers (manual) as I have one large slide, but I we still have shaking with just winds.

    The Steady Fast is the best style but I thought it was a little pricey. I went with stabilizers from BAL. Similar style and come in pairs for about $70, will attach to a variety of jacks, add as many pairs as you want. I put 4 on the front of my 5th wheel, 1,000% difference!

    I have also used several types and found that the JT Strongarms are FAR superior to all the rest (at least for 5th wheels)

    You really need to try the Rock Stabilizer. It is amazing

    Hey Jared!! What are your thoughts on slide out stabilizers? I live in my 5th Wheel full time mostly being parked at one spot and wondering if they are a good idea or not?

    the yellow pincer chocks from camco will also remove front to back movement, normal wheel chocks just cant get tight enough in comparison and thats where your lateral movement comes from. If you get two of them with the stock scissor jacks you wont have hardly any movement.

    I installed JT Strongarm stabilizers on my fifth wheel and they work great. The initial install took most of the day but now the set up takes about a minute once the camper is level….

    So if you’re looking to stop the wobble swaying and or movement of your fifth wheel or bumper pull trailer look into the rocksteady stabilizers from Armstrong innovation I promise you they will be the last set stabilizers you will bye

    Fast is way too expensive BAL stabilizer bars or an affordable option for a weekend are much better way to go and 0 set up the tripod to conversum too difficult to set up I'd 86 it it's old school generation technology

    Another steadyfast fan here, this system works great and once it’s installed, it takes less than a minute extra to implement it during setup.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the tri-pod isn't designed to stabilize the whole rig, only the area under the king pin. When you used the tri-pod, did you retract your scissor jacks? and disengage all other stabilizers?

    Great video. I'm not a big fan of the Valterra stabilizers unless you camp only a few weekends a year. Love your channel, Lou.

    Hey Jared! Great video on stabilizers- I will definitely check those out before our first RV trip in March, which will be a short one no longer than 100 miles. How are you and your family doing? I'm still praying- it seemed especially important the last 2 days.
    God bless, Bob Matt. 6:33-34

    I was just wondering about this. We have only been on the road a couple weeks but we haven't actually setup our tripod as of yet. I am curious to see if its actually worth the effort this coming week. I think the steady fast looks like something we should investigate purchasing.

    Keep up the videos, we enjoy all of them.

    I have a 30' Travel Trailer and use the Valterra stabilizers. I have been very disappointed with them. Valterra, usually, makes great products. These are not so great. I don't notice any real difference with them installed or not. I have tried them in different locations and it doesn't seem to matter. It feels like we are on an ocean cruise more than a camping trip. My next RV will be a 5th wheel and I will install the Steady Fast system. Great Videos!!!
