2017 2670bh question.

New to site and first time TT buyer. My wife and I are within weeks pf purchasing a Keystone 2670Bh. My question is, does anyone know if power
stabilizer jacks are available on this model. If not are they expensive to add on after the purchase? Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum from Radium Hot Springs BC.
Nice looking TT. I'm sure you will like it.
The website doesn't show electric stabilizers as an option but check with your dealer.

Welcome to the forum from Southern MD. I level side to side when I pull in and front to back after I disconnect from the truck. Then I use a cordless drill with the appropriate fitting to run the jacks down on my 2810BH. Works great and it's pretty quick. The only real issue is you have to be outside to do it.
Enjoy your new rig and post pictures when you get it.

If your unit doesn't have them, adding them is possible. Cost will depend on a few factors. Weight rating, wiring, and where the switches will be mounted.

I thought I always wanted some until I saw my buddies Forest River which came with electric stabilizers as part of some fancy package.

After watching them work, I must admit that they looked almost useless. Maybe they were cheap ones from the factory, but they didn't seem to have enough strength to do much of anything.

With stabilizers, you want to see the frame lift a little taking some of the weight off the suspension thereby reducing wiggle. I didn't see his electric ones do anything meaningful and he admitted his camper still had a lot of movement. Seemed like just one more electric component to possibly break.

The motors aren't designed to lift the frame. Easiest way is to set the trailer about 1" nose low. Set rear stab jacks, then use tongue jack to lift front about 1" nose high. Then set front stab jacks and lower tongue jack. IIRC the jacks are rated for 5,000 lbs. it's the motors that are weak.

I'll go along with the cordless drill. Works great, and doesn't take much time. An adapter is about $3-5, just a 3/4" (usually) socket.
