If you do not get satisfaction bark further up the tree. Just remember to be kind to the person you are talking too for you need them on your side to resolve the issue and they probably are not the ones who erred in the first place.

Excellent advice.

You may be able to get answers to your questions, from the source. You could ask what was supposed to be on your rig, what the part numbers are, etc You could explain your concerns about sub-par jacks, confirm that you have what you're supposed to have etc. At the very least the customer feedback is useful.

You may get nowhere with a call, but on the other hand, unless you put in the effort to try, you'll never know.

Ok, beyond anything already stated, I removed my "junk Jacks" they have no identification showing that they are or are not made by BAL

All I know is my new TT has BAL stickers on it talking about the jacks, one would assume with the sticker from BAL the jacks would be too,

The new ones the 24002c 5000lbs ones I installed have BAL stickers on the top of the jacks and on the bottem Bal and the model number is molded into the metal.

Strong sturdy steel

Beleive what you like but there is no way this junk that is on here was BAL, I feel confident that they would not sell such junk!!!

This is not a Rant this is me stating my opinion and stating the facts....

I dont see problems with these jacks. They are the same that other rv's manufacturers are using. For a lighter trailer like our a mini lite 1809s there is no issues. For a much bigger trailer and they are the same jacks it may be an issue?

threegr8katz, if you still feel THAT strongly that those jacks are definitely NOT made by BAL, there is half a phone book full of lawyers that just love to sue people. Who knows, MAYBE you could get lucky and win a bunch of money! You replaced them, they work better; get over it!!!

I can't believe no one has asked this question about your statement:

"I had something occur where I needed to replace the rear sissor jacks."

What happened?
