Complete newbie question about stabilizers

Hello All !

We have ordered our first ever RV, it's a tiffin class a gasser. I know we have the electronic leveling system but do we also need stabilizers ? I am more sensitive to movement than my partner. I have trouble with motion sickness and vertigo from time to time. I'm wondering if they even make stabilizers for Class A's and if they do make them, do they actually make a difference.

I know this is probably a stupid question but I'm trying to make sure we have as much of the must haves before we take delivery on the coach.

Thanks for your help - we have already learned so much from you all

Sometimes levelers are called stabilizers. Could this be what you mean? Or maybe a steering stabilizer, which would help steering in wind and if you had a tire blowout?..

I have seen these stabilizers that go on and between tires when parked that are supposed to minimize movement in the coach - I know about the steering stabilizers but these are for use when you are camped .

I think you are talking about those things that go between the front and back tires on trailers to keep the thing from rolling if unhooked from truck. I do not know how you would put anything like this on a motorhome with one axle. Set your parking brake, put down the jacks and enjoy your coach.

X2 on the info in 530ktm's post.

BTW. Welcome to iRV2.

For your motion sickness , have you tried " Sea Bands " ? They apply pressure to a point on your wrists and are the best non medical motion sickness aid I've heard of , DW had a set with her on our cruise , she didn't need them herself but they helped another passenger who had been bed ridden on medications for two days; 24 hrs later she was off the meds and enjoying the trip.
