BAL stabilizers - front to back or also side to side

Hi Guys,

I purchased 4 BAL stabilizers.

https://www.amazon.com/BAL-23216-Loc.../dp/B001UGNJ60

Should I mounted them in four corners in front to back orientation or maybe two of them should be in side to side orientation (if this is feasible at all)?

Thanks!

It depends on what you have to mount to. My front ones are front to back and the rears are side to side, I guess they did it this way as the frame is different from from to back. The main thing is just make sure you have a good solid mounting area.

Second here, I have 4 as well. And the same as Sundancer. I also added a 3rd set of jacks to the center of the frame. We are rock solid now.

I thought that I would install the stabilizers when staying at campground... It turned out that BAL products are not the compatible, or I am doing something wrong.



Am I right in thinking that the stabilizer should be mounted to the jack through the holes that I marked? If so, then the bolt is wider and I need to drill the wholes. Also, the bolt is too short, so I need to get 4 new bolts...

I understand that BAL my manufacture hundreds or thousands products... but still I do not understand how those two products are not compatible without mods.

What is the purpose of the bolt you say needs to be longer, I don't see it doing anything unless I am missing something. All you need are the two bolts which are already in place.

The additional bolt is provided with the stabilizer to mount to the jack. It is too short. There are two bolts as part of the jack assembly (are you referring to those), BUT they are also to short to mount the stabilizer arm and drilling would be needed as well.

EDIT - drilling would not be needed, if the jack's bolts are used. The bolts are however too short.

Called BAL and will get additional bolts by mail. They said they are planning to put two different bolts per stabilizer in the box.
