How To Mount JT's Strong Arms On 2020 Flagstaff Travel Trailer When Rear Stabilizers Are Pushed Back


We purchased the JT Strongarms for our 2020 Flagstaff 27RKWS camper. We ran into an issue when installing the rear units. The instructions state to mount the rear units to the rear mounting point up high. You have the perfect picture explaining, which I have attached. The issue we are running into is that it appears the LCI electric stabilizers were mounted further to the rear. This means that the mounting point results in the StrongAtm hitting the yellow braces well before the landing pads fully retract. We did purchase the spaces for the LCI electric stabilizers which did not help. We mounted the starboard side brace to the frame rail tunning front to back and it fits well. The port side is a different story. I have a galley tank drain in the way. I am considering replumbing it unless you can offer another solution. Thanks!

I have a way for you to be able to mount the rear arms of the JT's Strong Arm Jack Stabilizer Kit # LC191025 on your 2020 Forest River Flagstaff 27RKWS. I did see in images online that the rear stabilizer is pushed to the very back of the camper and this is likely due to the slide outs and your plumbing that you have on the drivers side of the travel trailer.

When you mounted the front you had spacer mounts that are used to help position the Strong Arms in place. You will need to create a similar mount using either some steel tubing or angle iron to lower the mounting point. This will allow for the rear Strong Arms to sit below the support arm of the Stabilizer Jack # LC369774.

You will want the jacks to run left to right to better stabilize the rear your Flagstaff since the supports are so narrow compared to the length front to rear on your camper.
