I was going to go with the 30" instead of 24", but they stick out past my sides too much when mounted to the frame. If you angle them it will limit the sticking out. I use a 6 x 6 under each of mine.

Good idea. I have to have the 30 inch. I thought that would work.

I have Jayco Eagle 2014 338 rlts. It came with electric stabilizers front and rear. I just installed a PowerTwin II-30" Electric RV Leveling Stabilizer http://www.ultra-fab.com/new_detail....gnum=39-941705 just in front of the tires which is just slightly behind the center of gravity of the TT (towards the rear). It was a three day ordeal to do this, but now I can level and stabilize the trailer with a touch of a button. I first level it front to back with the electric tongue jack. Then I level it side to side with the PowerTwin II-30" Electric RV Leveling Stabilizer. Then I fine tune front to rear again and then run down the front and rear electric stabilizers that came with it. The unit is rock steady as there are six points now instead of four and no tire bounce. If I'm going to be somewhere for a while I sometime set the tongue down on a jack stand which has been set for proper level. This also seems to help. The PowerTwin II-30" Electric RV Leveling Stabilizer will not lift the tires off the ground, but it does lift enough to level the trailer. I don't suggest anyone try installing this unit unless you are very mechanically inclined. It requires some fabricating and welding plus moving quite a lot of stuff under the TT. One also needs to install the electric hookups etc. I put the electric switches that come with the unit inside the front storage compartment which is locked (secure) and out of the weather and hooked directly to the battery with fuses using #10 wire throughout. The PowerTwin II-30" Electric RV Leveling Stabilizer is a bear i.e. super heavy duty. The mounting brackets that attach to the frame are 35" wide.

I think its hard to beat the Bal jacks and stabilizers, they are very well made, plus they are made in the USA.

I went with manual on mine. I had the electrics on last trailer and made sure on my order that manual was all in CAP's and the electrics would be a deal breaker. They got it right.

WwsmithIII?..that is an amazing amount of work you did. Congrats.
But for me...I'm into less work...so I think I will just purchase two more of the 30 inchers, 7500 pound capacity. Mount one forward and one rear of the axles. That's 15,000 pounds each side. Will take me about an hour. Then using my 20 volt impact I should be able to actually raise a side if needed and be really stable. and at a total cost of less than $200.00.
