Recommended Ways To Stabilize Bouncy 5th Wheel Trailer Other Than King Pin Stabilizer


How do I get the bounce out of my 5wheel 36.5 ft long I have a king pin stabilizer . And tire stabilizers to but it still bounces what can I do.


Helpful Expert Reply:

If you are experiencing the fifth wheel bouncing around when you are parked even with the king pin stabilizer like part # UF19-950500 and wheel stabilizers like part # UF21-001070 you do have a couple more options to stabilize the fifth wheel.

I recommend to use the JT's Strong Arm Jack Stabilizer Kit for 5th Wheel RVs part # LC191024 if you have less than 58" between landing gear jacks. The stabilizers attach to the jacks and eliminate excessive movement of the chassis. I have attached a video for your reference. If you have 58" or more between landing gear jacks you will need part # LC191023 instead.

Another option is to add scissor jacks under the trailer for extra stability like part # JSC-24. Most people install them at the rear corners of the trailer frame. I have attached the mounting hole diagram for your reference.
