JT Strong Arm or other stabilizer systems. Do they work? Worth the money?

Like most of us on this forum we have BAL X chocks and they work great. I am looking for something that takes out more movement. There are several stabilizing systems out there like JT Strong Arm and I beleive BAL even has one now. Wanted to hear from the guys on the forum that actually have them installed on their RV. Good bad and indifferent! I am leaning towards JT Strong Arm but would appreciate all input.

lou1216gc I put a set of JT strongarm's on my 5er in Florida over Christmas. These things work better than anything I have tried before. I would say takes out about 95% of all movement. Money well spent. I paid $300.00 for them.

I have used them on my fifth wheels for years. They work great. We sell hundreds of them, yearly, and have yet to have a complaint. BTW, the Ultra Fab Eleminator is the same thing, and comes with extra mounting hardware, there is onw SKU for fifth wheels AND travel trailers, they come with hardware for both.

I have said in the past and will say again. They are the best investment you will make.

I can buy from you? I like that! Is this the right SKU for TT and it comes with all the hardware I need? Item # 94-9220, PART # 191025, I have a 2010 Jayco super lite eagle 314BDS roughly around 33'. I am getting excited hearing all of the positive reviews.

Is there a preference between Ultra Fab and JT Strong Arms. Everyone else have JT or Ultra Fab?

These are the JT's

These are the ultra fab

Installtion is pretty strait forward if you can use a drill and hand tools. You have to drill a couple of holes into the bottom of the frame where the upper portion attaches. The lower portion attaches tho the bottom of the landing gear. It took me about an hour or so.....Same thing for the rears.
