Use of Aluminum Stacker Jacks

We are trying to find a cheap and easy way to stabalize our Class C RV when we are parked.

I found a guy selling a set of four Aluminum Stacker Jacks for $30.00.

Can I use these to stabalize our RV or are these more suited for a trailor or popup?

(picture shows two sets but one set has been sold).

Truthfully, these are better suited to a pop up or a small travel trailer. That said, check the weight rating and if high enough and you crank on them hard enough, they will help.

I use them on my 5ver,put them just behind the
back wheels. I put 4 Lynx Leveling Blocks under
each one, so the screw is not out to far.
Tighten them up just enough so they can't be
moved, I don't try and lift the wheel off the ground.
They work fine.

I use four of them on my 5th wheel. I place one in front and behind the axles on the frame and just snug them up. They take significant bounce out of the unit when you are walking around.

On our '97 Georgie Boy Class C I went to a salvage yard and got two heavy duty truck jacks (the scissor type) and fastened one behind each rear wheel on the frame. Up front I used the heavy duty screw jacks sitting on wood in order to minimize the stickout. Worked great!! Also made an adapter to use in my cordless drill in order to run rear jacks faster, then used standard crank arrangement to put pressure on for stabilization.
