Fast Stabilizer Jack Deployment 15 seconds per jack

Deploying the stabilizer jacks was a slow manual process.

A cordless electric drill can speed things up.

Just don't use something to OVER load the jacks. They are STABILIZERS, not lift jacks.

Some people use impact wrenchs on their stabilizer jacks. I don't think that's a good idea.
Not only does it wake up the entire campground, but I'm sure impact wrenches can overload the stabilizer jacks.

The cordless drill that I am using is a 12V Black and Decker. I bought it at WalMart ($39.95) specifically for this purpose. No too much torque like some of those expensive 20V cordless drills.
