Junk sisor jacks....
Forest river sure is good with trying to fake out consumers, on my 2011 TT I had something occur where I needed to replace the rear sissor jacks. On my TT there are stickers on the sides above where the jacks are that say the jacks on my TT are BAL. Guess what they aren't. I ordered some BAL jacks and they are strong sturdy steel jacks. The other two original ones I have which are the original ones, which again I will add one would be led to believe are BAL are far from it.
Yes they are sissor jacks but from who I have no idea, I can not believe they ( Forest River) is so cheap and has gone out of their way to try and pull the wool over our eyes. These jacks are so flimsy, thin metal easily bendable, wiggley excuse for a jack.
So anyway, I am sure most of you have felt the shaking and wiggling inside your TT when someone walks. I recently ordered and installed a set of Steadfast stabilizers on my TT. In doing so I noticed these sub par low quality sissor jacks just won't cut it! So I ordered another set of quality well built BAL sissor jacks to aid in a stable base at the camp site. Yes a pair cost $90 or so but if you are looking for quality jacks look no further.
Just my two cents, but someone should call them on this, I at least let the company that makes the BAL jacks that FR is using their stickers but nor the jacks on the TT. They told me nothing can be done on their end.
I sure am glad my Ford truck isn't a dodge ram with a ford sticker on it!!!!!
