Adding Stabilization Jacks To Fifth Wheel Trailer That Uses Lippert 3.0 Ground Control


We have a Sabre 36bhq. The Lippert 3.0 leveling system does a wonderful job at leveling the rig, but there is a long tail portion without support. Could we add two stabilizer jacks towards the rear to help with the bounce of teenagers? Is there a specific product for this application since there are no current jacks on it? We planned on adding either the JT strong arm or steadfast system anyways, but that still leaves the long tail portion unsupported. Thank you in advance.

Yes, you can add two stabilizer jacks to the long tail portion of your Sabra to help stabilize it along with your Lippert Ground Control part # LC675817.

I recommend the pair of 2 Ultra-Fab Scissor Jacks part # UF48-979031 to add to the rear of the trailer. You probably do not have holes in the trailer frame at the rear of your trailer so you will most likely need to drill into the support brace of the trailer frame to attach the brackets of the jacks. I have attached an installation video for your reference. The scissor jacks are not made to lift the trailer so you would need to retract them before you can lift the trailer with the ground control.

You can use the JT's Strong Arm Jack Stabilizer part # LC191024 as well if you have less than 58 inches between landing gear feet. If you have 58" or more between landing gear feet you need part # LC191023. You will also need the adapters part # LC314592 to attach the JT arms to the foot of your Ground Control jacks. The adapter lugs come in sets of 2. You do not need the adapters for the scissor jacks.
