Should Lippert Ground Control Stabilizers be Used During Winter Storage


Comments for and against leaving rear Lippert stabilizers down during winter storage. Some think a flat tire over winter could cause serious frame twist. Your thoughts please.


Expert Reply:

There really isn't any reason to use stabilizers like the Lippert Ground Control 3.0 Electric 5th Wheel RV Leveling System # LC675817 during winter storage. The 5th wheel trailer has no need to be leveled or stabilized during storage, and a flat tire like you mentioned could be undue pressure on the system for a long period of time.

So I don't recommend using the leveling system during storage, but in order to help prevent flat spots on your tires during winter storage I do recommend using the TrailerLegs Tire Saver Stands for Trailers with Leaf Spring Suspensions - Tandem Axle # 326-TRLLG-4.

I have added a link below to a video review of these stands for you to check out as well if you'd like.
