Olddude we haven't used the power stabilizers but we have the ultra-fab stabilizer units. They really make the trailer rock solid. They triangulate the entire chassis. there is another company called JT strong arms very good also but they were never available when we wanted to get ours. You won't be sorry if you add these to your rig. They were under $300 when we purchased ours. The installation is very easy just a little time consuming. I am sure they are much cheaper than power stabilizers also.

Also consider Roto-chox as they are suppose to really stabilize a trailer.

I have the electric rear stabilizers and love them. One trick is to keep the stabilizers as short as possible. That means you may have to add blocks under them before lowering them.

I took 4x6 pressure treated wood, cut them into 12" pieces and then glued and screwed them together creating 4x12x12 bocks. I have 10 of them. I stack them as needed.

In July 2007 we purchased JT Stabilizers. Since then we have been in several high wind situation, the most recent was yesterday in Russell KS where they reached 40mph. There was absolutely no movement whatsoever!!! These were one of the most valuable purchases we've made!!

I also installed the JTs and found that they add a lot of stability. Even with them on there seems to be a little trick of once the trailer is level drop the nose a few clicks, stablize the rear and lcok them in, then raise the nose about double the clicks up, stablize the front, then drop the nose half way back down which should put you back on your original level position with pressure on all stabilization points.

My wife bought for me, and had installed the Ultra Fab electric stabilizer jacks, both front and rear. Not only do they work great, but Ultra Fab is very easy to deal with. Customer Service is wonderful.

Good Luck...
