Which Model of JT Strong Arms for 377RLBH?

I plan to order and have installed the JT Strong Arm Stabilizing Kit for my 377RLBH. Camping World list two models, one for under 58" inches and over for over 58" between the landing gear. I want to make sure I order the correct ones and sorry if this is an obvious question but it is my first 5th wheel.

You'll need to measure the distance between the front landing gears to see if you're over 58" or not. With your rig, I'm assuming you'll need a kit that is for 58" and over. Now, once you have the kit, I'd think twice about having Camping World install it. Their service track record (from what I've seen) has not been good. You can also buy this same kit from Amazon as well, then take it to a respectable RV repair shop in your area to have it installed. Or, DIY!

Good luck and let us know how it turned out.

I just used Camping World's sight to look up for the parts, found them cheaper on Amazon too and I have a local RV service person who I am going to use. Thank you for the help I will measure to be sure.

You could still make them work if you need to.

Be sure to measure from inside edge to inside edge of the landing gear (not on center as I first thought). This won't matter unless the measurement is real close to 58". I just installed a set on my rig. It took me about 5 hours but I was very careful and slow about what I was drilling into.
