King pin stabilizer

On my old 5th wheel it had just screw down jack in the rear and I used a king pin stabilizer and it did help with the 5er movement. Our new 5er has the auto leveling which puts a lot of weight on the jacks at 4 points. So my question is those with auto leveling do you use and if so are there much improvement using a king pin stabilizer?

The comments on the king pin tri pod have been mixed. I use angled stabilizers on the levelers, similar to the JR Strongarms.

Yeah, like GHen said it’s is mixed feeling but I have the one for the king pin stabilizer, with my 5th wheel yes their is still some movement but I did install a set of JT Stongarm but I only did it about two months ago so I want know for sure. My 5th wheel have the four leveling jacks, when I use the king pin stabilizer the movement wasn’t as bad but it was their. This summer when I take it back out I will use the JT,s first and then see if I will need to use the king pin stabilizer.

I put "the rock" stabilizers on the rear of my FW and it took out 95% of the movement.

Hey RipinSC, you don't happen to have any pics do you? When I install my jt's strong arm it came with enough to do my rear stabilizer so I have been thinking about install the back one but I wanted to wait to see how the ones in the front work first.

I have the 6-point leveling system on my 2016 Pinnacle and I use a king pin stabilizer without JT support arms. I also have x-chocks between the tandem wheels. We don't feel any movement in our FW. I have also asked friends when they are camping with us and no one has ever said they felt any movement inside.

6 point systems are great, wish I had one, much more stable than the 4 point.

When we had the washer and dryer installed we also purchased the king pin tripod. And, we love it.

Thanks

Ive tried contacting this guy (the Rock) through his website. Sent a follow up email 3-4 days later. Now its been over a week. Nothing but crickets, beginning to think hes not doing business anymore.

Until you can get ahold of them, you can make a DIY stabilizer from 2x4 or 2x2s and a ratchet strap. Youtube has videos on how to make one. I was using a homemade version, worked great, until saving enough for the JT Strongarms.

This is Jim's email address who makes "the Rock" product.
I bought mine a year and a half ago and it was $150 including shipping.
Not sure if he is still making them but try his email and see if he responds.
He always responded back to me ASAP.

Thanks, I opened my email when I got home tonight and right after your reply post was a reply from Jim. So hes still doing business. Must have just been busy. So now I need to go take a few measurements. Hes offering them in 3 different sizes Heavy duty $300, Medium $200 and lite $100. Thanks, this looks like a great solution for me.
