    We put stabilizers on our Landmark. Results are...prior to having them the washer shook the RV so much I thought it would fall off the jacks; after-we barely can feel that the washer is on at all. I would recommend the stabilzers to everyone. My question is why dont they come standard on the Landmark. After all it is supposed to be top of the line?

    retired,

    Ok......you asked for it......photos of stabilizers installed, sorry about the dirty garage.........mop day is next Wednesday.

    The stabilizers worked perfectly, now I will have an aluminum tripod hitch-pin stabilizer available for someone at the Nevada Chapter Rally Sept 26..........maybe a raffle or ??
