New Dutchmen 316RES owners

Hello! So happy to have found this forum! We just bought our first fifth wheel and absolutely love it so far! One question, we're considering installing JT Strongarm stabilizers in front, but noticed that maybe one of the arms of the stabilizer has to be mounted to the storage area under the front of the camper because the jacks sit back pretty far. Anyone else have any experience installing stabilizers on their Dutchmen fifth wheel? Many thanks and safe travels!
Beth

We figured it out :)

We figured out how to get the JT Strongarm stabilizers on the Denali. Wasn't as bad as we thought, and really makes a difference!

What are your thoughts on the Strongarm kit so far? Considering it on our Triton as well, just curious if they take the weeble wobble out of it!

What a difference the Strongarm stabilizers made! Before we installed them, I could literally feel the dog roll over in his bed downstairs when I was laying in bed upstairs. It was ridiculous! Now, while it still moves very slightly, it's much more stable. $$ well spent.

I've just purchased the JT's Strongarm Stabilizers for our TT. Read through the manual this weekend but didn't get out to install them yet as temps were in the 90's this weekend... I'm hoping to get out there this week to install them.

I've read great reviews on them so we are hoping they live up to what everyone is saying about them.
