RP177 Axle riser

Just purchased 2014 RP177 used (not much), and I dont live close to a dealer to ask them.
FR lists as an option, an Axle riser @2o# I can guess at what it is, but how do I know if is equipped with one?
There is a sq. section of metal tube the size of the frame, welded between axle and frame.
The last owner didn't know.
Thanks dandimon

Without risers you have a pretty easy chance of scraping your stabilizers in some places. Gas stations are horrid and lots have yanked a stabilizer off there at the dips before the road. Driveways, and semi unlevel campgrounds have also been notorious for bottoming out, scraping and, digging at times.

Plenty of folks don't have them and are fine, just takes an experienced tower who knows when and how to maneuver their rig for the most part.

with the small size of the R-pod, some like to take them into off-road areas or boondock in areas without paved roads.
so the extra clearance helps with that.
