I own a 40ft fifth wheel with 4 slide outs. I have been using the king
pin stabilizer and 3 of my slide outs have stabilizer. Ye...t when going in
and out of the RV there would still be some rocking. The adjustable
stabilizer under the bottom step eliminated that problem. The only
problem is I have to constantly adjust it. There is no locking device to
lock it in place once set up.
I have used this Item for years and it really helps to take the load off of your step mounting brackets, now when I step up it doe...sn't pull down on my steps, this Item takes all the load off them. I would highly
The thing that wobbled our 5th wheel the most was going up
and down the entrance steps. Simple physics would
demonstrate that th...e weight of your average adult applied to
a lever, (in this case your steps) would multiply that
weight, turn it into a twisting motion and apply it to your RV.
Visions of The Poseidon Adventure come to mind.
The Stabil-Step Jack fits under your steps and transfers any
weight applied to the steps straight to the ground.
Put the life jackets away. That violent rocking motion is gone.
Heavy and overbuilt, one of these will outlast several RVs.
Does exactly what it's supposed to do.
Getting it adjusted requires turning the threaded rod, put
the step down and test for fit. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. I
like keeping a square of plywood under mine, though that is
Plastic blocks/pads usually have two purposes. Leveling and/or stabilization of the RV on surfaces, especially soft or uneven surfaces, depending on the design. Item# 14033 will not replace the function of leveling: Levelers can stabilize, Stabilizers cannot level.
While these jacks have a 6"x6" surface area for contact, jack pads are still larger and thicker for soft or uneven surfaces and may still be needed.

will this work on a 25 foot class C to stabilize the rear? if so, how many should I have.
There should not be any reason why this product can not be used on your Class C motorhome as long as there is enough ground clearance to get the stabilizer under were you need them.
How many and where to place the stabilizer is customer choice. Suggestion is to walk around in your RV, record where the unit seems to sway/dip/rock and put a stabilizer in that area. 'Corner' configuration is typical for installation, one stabilizer/leveler per general corner of the RV. However, jack (item# 4205) are usually selected for this purpose, 'stack jacks' require less contact point/surface area for the RV chassis to rest on as opposed to a 6" plate.
Simply rotate the top plate, it is on a threaded post.
