It is all about knowing what you have and what you may need to deal with stuff.

And if he did I'd have admitted being wrong.

a 20 ton bottle jack is overkill. That's a lot of weight to carry. We jack up 45,000 lb tractors and combines with that size. Not necessary for a 8-12000lb trailer. 10 or 12 ton will be plenty and much lighter to tote around.

Wow, thanks for all the great imformation, this is a great site, much more than I expected, now I see that I assumed that there would be a one all jack for my camper, now I know I need to check it out for the best jack to put under it and be perparred to know how to use it. I will use the great imformation I was given and hope someday I can return the favor to some one else in need.

My dealer talked up Coach Net big time. Made it seem almost too good to be true actually.
