Question Stabilizers for Jayco 27 ft motorhome

We are looking at installing the POWER TWIN II stabilizers on our 27 ft Granite Ridge motorhome. Has anyone had experience with the POWER TWIN II ? We would like your input. Or what are you using and do you like the way it works. We have 2 slides, one front left and one back right, the movement when someone is walking or coming in and going out is very annoying. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

I am very interested in this as well. I want to install them on our 2013 Redhawk 26XS. For us the manual version will work just fine. I don't mind a little extra work.

We explored the manual version and were told by an installer that we would not have the strength to raise it to a level that would be effective to reduce the rocking motion. Anyone had experience with the manual ones?

Ah good to know! The cost isn't too much different. I found out yesterday that it requires drilling into the frame of the RV. Does that void the Ford/Jayco warranty? I found the install instructions and diagrams on the Factory website. I may not get this now. I really don't want to drill into the frame.

I have a 2013 Redhawk as well. Why do you need stabilizers- mine is rock solid with slide out and MH level?

LOL I guess everyone is different. When the kids are jumping around and running back and forth their is a lot of movement. If it was just me and my wife it would be fine.

You're probably right. I just tie my kids to the bumpers when we're stationed.
