While pulling out of a parking lot, I ripped off the rear stab jacks on my Shasta 5'r. (Gravel lot, steep angled apron and they caught the edge of the concrete sidewalk.) They were the kind that had the bar all of the way across. Should I replace w/ the same, or the individual jacks? I wish I could find a jack stand style with a collar that turns to adjust. Kind of like the king pin stand. Swore I saw them, but can't find them. That way I would not have to worry about the jacks hanging down. Any opinions?

Replace them with whatever you want. Mine didn't have them at all so I got scissor type, screw jacks, and made removeable brackets so I take them off before I move. I figure if they are stowed in a bin they can't be drug off or stolen. Plus they stay out of the weather and seem to still look brand new after a year.

You are probably talking about the BAL angled stabilizers. They do a better job of stabilizing from side movement than the screw type, but you cannot put a lot of weight on them. Cost is about $120 - - I am replacing mine tomorrow - - caught them on the ferry in Alaska.

I had a set of the stands that that had the screw type post in the center, gave them to my son for the Popup. I got them at a local rv parts store here in KC. I do have 4 BAL jacks with crank for sale in the classified area, if intested in where I got the screw jacks or the BAL jacks send me a Personal message or E-mail me.

You may want to add a set of roller to the rear of th trailer so that nest time you are in that type of situation they will catch and allow th trailer to ROOOOOOOLL down.

I got an E-mail showing I had an E-mail from you, but didn't see a message. Either I didn't get it or I can't figure out how or where to open it.

Post here if I need to contact you

Steve

Steve,
I had a fight w/ the classified forum and it appears the forum won!

Anyway...
Do the jacks you have for sale look like these?

I recently heard someone speak of Wayne's stabilizer jacks for RVs. They sound like the best jack to keep the side to side sway down. Do a google search for Wayne's stabilizer and you'll find 'em. Even CampingWorld's got 'em. I'm gonna try one this spring to see if they work.

under the FWIW portin of life in the 5er...

Mine too were removed by force... (tree stump) any way I have since used standard Jack stands, I raise the front of the trailer to "SEAT" the stands down hard, seems to work better than what was on before as I am able to put more weight on them. plus the price dif really assisted on the decision :-)
