You'll be amazed at what you might learn at Rally when the PHrogs are around!

Even though I've owned a camper since late 2012 I still consider myself very much a noob so I am always trying to learn and find better ways to do things. A rally like this with many other experienced campers will hopefully help me more. Reading here is good but I learn better "hands on" or actually seeing what works.

This is per jt strongarms directions.

Just tightening the t handles after leveling will not stabilize your camper.

Oh my bad. I don't have them yet. I just want to see how they work and do they actually help with the rocking and bouncing. I am considering buying them but want to see them in action first. I currently only have the landing gear, rear stabilizers, and one xchock, along with normal chocks/wood blocks.

I'll gladly demonstrate the effectiveness of jt's at the rally for you!

I went to install my big level on the front of the camper this weekend but I didn't have a big enough drill to do the job. My Craftsman 19.2 volt do well at most things except drilling through steel. Next trip out I'll take my corded drill and maybe a better/new bit so I can get that thing installed. It will be nice to see it from the rear view mirror.

You will need to throw away the sign "If this camper is a Rocking, Don't come a Knocking". JT's will do the trick!
