Trailer Legs

I saw the info about the trailer legs on the first page when you log in. Looks interesting. Has anybody used them or seen a review on them. I just wondered how tough it would be to have the weight of the trailer/5th wheel on the trailer leg and what damage it could do to the axles.

On the front page there was a advertisement/info page with these plastic legs that you place under the trailer/5th wheel. When they are in place you back the trailer up and it engages the axles raising them a few inches and of course the tires......designed to save your tires ....The link....101 Uses! | TrailerLegs

Click the link to find out. Looks neat but they might be a solution in search of a problem

The OP provided a clickable link.

I would be concerned about placement on the axles. Maybe the shape of the 'leg' where it cups the axle might prevent possible damage to the axle.

I haven't seen them in person, so I can only speculate. I think if they're wide enough, cupped, and placed up close to the springs they should work fine. They look like they are in the video about them. The only problem I can see is if one or two slide and don't pivot, you could do some damage or not. The theory is sound. But I still think it should be supported by the frame, because you can damage an axle real easy if you don't know what you're doing. Tire shops damage axles all the time by jacking axles instead of frame behind rear tires. IMHO. But, I'd like to see them in person though.

Maybe if you're gonna park it for a year in a seasonal site.. but even then.. seems like a waste of 200 clams to me...

I would think the electric or hydraulic jacks would (could) take enough pressure off the tires for a extended stay.. Our auto level sytem has lifted a tire or two completley off the ground before, but I don't like that. So I do manual leveling now...

I was thinking as well that the axles might be damaged if these things were used.....might wait a bit to see if someone tries them and reviews them.
