Okay, I'll bite (and when you tell me, I'll say, heck, I knew that)

What is a kingpin stabilizer?

Thanks.

It’s a tripod-type unit that you stick up under the over-hang on a 5th wheel travel trailer …it attaches to the kingpin there and helps keeps the trailer from jiggling around a lot when you’re moving about inside.

You of course only need it if you made a fifth wheel skoolie (which several people have) and where pulling a trailer.
