REASONS NOT TO USE A FIFTH WHEEL KING PIN TRIPOD STABILIZER
TO STABILIZE YOUR 5th WHEEL CAMPER
- Most RV ‘ers say it doesn’t get the job done.
- It may be difficult to set up if the site is not level.
- If it has a threaded adjustment to compensate for unlevel sites, the adjusting mechanism is loose and negates the benefit of the tripod concept.
- It takes up a lot of valuable storage space.
- The addition of special wheel chocks doesn’t get the job done.
- The addition of slide out stabilizers or jacks doesn’t get the job done.
- The slide out jack stands are not recommended by Good Sam or many manufacturers.
- The jack stands take up valuable storage space.
- The total cost will likely be over $300 by the time you purchase the additional devices that are needed to go with it.
- You will spend about 30 minutes of additional set up time each time you setup or 4 hours for every 8 times you set up.
- You will spend about 15 minutes of additional tear out time or 2 hours for every 8 times you set up.
