Dual LG motors

Our last 5er had dual landing gear motors but they were Atwood LG. The new 5er has a Lippert frame so I'm assuming that it has their LG but I haven't climbed in far enough to do a 100% check yet. If indeed it is a Lippert, can the LG be converted to dual motor operation? If so, has anyone done that mod?

I have replaced the Lippert legs of our '08 Keystone Challenger 5er. Old ones had one motor and were not strong enough to last. I'm thinking that it was Ultra Fab units that I used. Anyway, do a google search and I think you will find something that will do you. New ones are independent of each other and much stronger.

Installation was not easy - had to cut the base a bit to fit the new legs and redo the wiring. It was more time consuming then I had though but it has been well worth the effort.

I'm guessing that I'll be eventually doing something along that line as well - Keystone and some of their decisions to use minimally spec'd (Lippert) parts vs what I had (overkill) is a real learning curve
