Well, I still have to manually put down my stabilizers... Years ago I got the drill adapter but when we stopped, It was always a few minutes to get to the drill to lower the stabilizers...

So, I got a "drill holster" and screwed it to the wall just inside the front storage area door up high. https://www.harborfreight.com/drill-holster-67165.html

It is a great solution. Just open the door, pull it out, a couple minutes and SHE can get inside... Now, it would be nice to just flip a switch...but that is on the list for the next RV...

There is no reason you have to have the stabilizers down before SHE can go inside.

I have mine in a cubby just inside the front door. I have a battery charger plugged in and keeping the spare fully charged at all times. I agree with the others though... why can't your bride go inside before the stabs are down? When we go camping in the summer or winter, one of the first things we do is plug into electric and go inside to turn on AC or heat while we finish setting up camp.

We haven't put down our stabilizers in years.

My DW goes in our 5er while I am still hooked to the truck.

Kinda depends on the layout inside. Some trailers with multiple slides are not usable when the slides are in. Stabs should go down before the slide goes out.

Thanks for sharing Kavoom. Don’t mind the dingleberry responses...

You have never had one go start to go down in back while she is making a bed have you...
