bapp, are you sure this is mounted on an Airstream 30 Classic? The video doesn't work for me, the photos show some other brand battery box and propane cover. Your posts just get more confusing.

When I was having so much trouble and getting ready to trade the Airstream off, I gave the PP to to a friend who was helping me. The hitch is on his keystone.. Over the long weekend, we finished transferring all the electronics to his trailer. The Airstream actually pulls better without it, but his pulls a lot better with it .

So, you are pulling your classic with an F150, on a ball, with no WD, at 75 to 80, and is better?

The electronic controls seem neat. I've only pulled our 30' Safari & 2500HD combo about 7000-ish miles so far. In that time, I've only felt like I needed to adjust the jacks "post-takeoff" a time or two. Easy enough to pull over and do it.

But never crossed my mind that building that contraption would be a huge asset. Of all the slop issues that needed solving, you thought that automating the jacks would have the most impact? I agree with others, something is not adding up.

Snapping pics of your actual rig hooked up with your phone never crossed your mind? Something is starting to stink... been that way for a while now, and we've politely conversed with you. Please post truthful and complete info, or go away. It's okay if you don't personally own an Airstream or a ProPride, and just need help understanding something, but tell us up front...

Funny the application you developed for your Airstream jacks has a SOB picture as the background. So the stabilizer jacks are remote controlled also? On your Airstream? Picture?

And you added the modules to remotely control your buddies Keystone front and rear slides, lights, and awning to your homemade application over the same weekend? Looks more like a Keystone application for a Keystone trailer. Alde has one for the Alde in '17 Airstream, but haven't ever tried it.

So found out my lock pin was 5/8", same as biggest bolt that will go through and with the Class 4 insert in my Class 5 hitch, there is more wiggle that welded shims won't fix. I did yank up on the hitch to simulate the idea of porpoising due to slop and figured the imagined sledge hammer sound was wrong; closer to a 105 mm howitzer.

SERVICE BULLITEN FOR PPP YOKE Alignment:

Took my stinger back to TT yesterday, and since I had started reading this thread from the beginning, checked a few things. Found my yoke cross bar had shifted right and forward, about an inch both ways, assuming I had it in the right place back in October and 3500 miles ago. Everything was tight, but could see the rusted u bolt marks on the paint of the A frame vertical where the threads usta be. So I measured, tweaked, tightened.

Check yours. Gross: Pull the head out straight, bend down and sight through the head box, jack post, and yoke tail.

Fine: measure from yoke arm ends to A frame. The tail piece should be centered fore and aft through the roller frame for sufficient clearance while rolling up and down drive way humps and valleys, or big dips in the highway at 75 mph ;-)

Yes i did change the picture an added other controls to the basic app in less than 15 minutes. That's called coding. I am a software engineer with a PHD. And yes i did i did drive an eighteen wheeler while i was working my way through 10 years of college.

No, I don't need them, but someone else asked. I've been inspired of late by Al Einstein, "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." I'm learning coding, so beginning to understand what's possible with the right skill set.

Please pardon us folks in the mid section of the bell curve when a guy in the right tail is sharing the fantastic.

The best part is that all of the hardware i used, including the tablet, the Arduino, the relays, and jack heads was all less than $300 from Amazon.

Can you add a video to youtube? Your videos aren't playing on my Chrome/Windows combination.

Is the app only used to change the weight distribution?

The app is configured to control all of the slides, awning, levelers, and the WD. Anything that can be turned on and of with a relay can be controlled by the app via bluetooth. I deleted the original video from my phone, but ill take another one and post to youtube.

Bapp--if you don't mind, create a new thread for your beta RV automation stuff. It's really a separate thing not directly related to a PP hitch. And maybe register as a commercial member, (nothing wrong at all selling stuff here, there's just a process for it). This particular thread is huge already, which makes it hard to distill info out of for people trying to learn about/adjust/help others with specific ProPride concerns. Thanks in advance for helping!
