Thx for the review
Do you have any pics of your ratchet straps on the electric rear stabliziers?? I have electric stabilizers on my TT and interested in this idea???

I don't have any pics. My stabilizers are the style with a leg that swings down from each side with a screw drive that runs from side to side. After they are down and weighted I just hook a strap from leg to leg down near the bottom and then snug it up.

Pics of the front ones attached. I load those too by lowering the trailer a bit after tightening the locking screws.

Will have to give your idea a try. My TT has F&R electric stabilizers pretty much like you described, so it can't hurt anything. Thanks

Mine look like this one at the rear, standard fifth wheel legs at the front:

Thanks for the review rollingrockTX. I was hoping you'd post this when you got back. Jim emailed me back with a price of $300 but I'd like to talk to him personally about options and shipping. I'm definitely interested and thanks again for bringing these to our attention.

Both of mine (F&R) look like that just the LCI "stuff".

Thanks again for the info.

Pricing can vary based on shipping and a couple of options. Best to Call Jim Holes and get him to quote you for your rig but expect around 300.00 for the set of 4.

I'm wondering if they will work as well on a gravel surface. Gonna e-mail Jim. Thanks for bringing these up rollingrock as they have peaked my interest.
