I guess I need to look into the JT Strongarms, but man are they expensive! I'm guessing you still need the X Chocks.

X Chocks won't fit between my tires, so I just have the JT Strongarm. I was going to buy a Roto Chocks, but they are a bit pricey as well

I'm happy with my tripod. I can't use JT strongarms because my battery boxes are in the way.

It gives me peace of mind that if one of those weak flimsy looking forward hydraulic jack stands breaks, my camper will be ok..i hope.

I picked up a couple of screw jacks and put them in front of the axle. I know this isn't advisable but I put a 4 ft long 4x4 hardwood post between the jack and frame to disburse the weight. The trailer is almost 100% solid.
