Jayco factory electric stabilizers

I'm trying to decide on options for a 2017 27RBOK and would like the electric stabilizer jacks and wireless remote, but some of my reading on here makes me question the wisdom of this. I cannot tell from any searching I have done whether or not the factory Jayco electric stabilizers use a single motor to operate two pads (therefore a pivot point in the center of the trailer) or if there are two motors. Can someone with firsthand knowledge help out? If there's only one motor I think I'll stay with manual jacks and a cordless drill. Thanks in advance!

From the picture on Jayco's web site it looks like they use the Lippert jacks like this Power Stabilizer Jacks.

If that's the case, they are single motor jacks.

Hello...we have 2014 27RBOK & love the layout. Ours has the electric jacks. Single motor, 1 side extends then opposite side extends. We do not have wireless remote though...switch at front & back of trailer for each. We did not order the trailer, found at local dealer & wish it had the manual jacks. Hope this is helpful for you. We love the 2017 version of this model but it's not practical for us to trade/sell & purchase new model. Happy Camping!!!

I considered them on the last trailer but the dealer actually talked me out of them. The state parks we go to aren't exactly the most level so it was nice to be able to adjust each jack independently.

The electric stabilizers are self adjusting, when one side stops [if off level] the other continues until it reaches it's stopping point. We've had 'em for 4 years now and I like them. If the motor ever fails you can crank them down manually just like any other stabilizer. Tool is provided.

Mine are the same as the previous poster. They are self leveling.

I've got a 2008 Jayco fifth wheel. I'm glad I have the electric rear stabilizer jacks. I did have to replace the motor a while ago, but that was easy.

I have them on my '15 27DSRL and I would recommend them. Trouble free after 3 years of use.

I don't have the remote but a switch on the side. Remotes are popular but I likely would not use it even if I had it.

Here's another vote for the electric jacks. We have them on our Tracer and to be honest didn't like them at first because the trailer seemed to rock a little more then our previous manual jacks. However, I have grown to like them because they are self leveling, meaning that on any uneven ground they apply pressure equally on both sides which I really like. Very easy to use. I only had to replace a switch so far. When that broke, it was simple to crank them up and down manually with the supplied handle. Other than that, they have been trouble free. Just ordered them on our WH 28DSBH today...
