First, please remember they are NOT jacks, but stabilizers. Sorry I would have to go out and measure, but I seem to think it is 3/4. It is simple to make, simply go to Sears and buy a 3/8 X 6 inch extension and cut the socket end off and you will be able to attach the appropriate socket to it easily. If you have the ability to do some grinding, you can mark off three equal flats and grind them down so the drill does not spin on the extension.

An aside to this is:
Keep the screw threads and nut clean and dry. Never use oil or grease because it attracts/holds dirt and sand, which together make a crude grinding compound. I use DriSlide lubricant, it sprays on wet, then the carrier dries, leaving a dry film of molybdenum lubricant.

AMSOIL MP Heavey Duty Metal Protector is great for this also. You can also use it on the slideout glides/gear trane. It doesn't attract dirt and stays where you put it.

If you can't find it in the stores then check right here:
AMSOIL - Synthetic Oil, Motor and Engine Oil, Lubricants, Air Filters, Oil Filters and Greases You can order it on line and depending on where you live you may be able to pick it up at the local AMSOIL depo.
