I took the stock foot off the jack and installed one of these:



Works great, spreads the load and saves a lot of running time on the power jack.

Best thing since a pocket on a shirt. I'd be lost without 'em.

Oh, I forgot to mention carrying 4 short pieces of decking that were left over from a deck project to use under the stab jacks. Very light.

Often my rig is parked for long periods at one site. In that case I use concrete blocks of various sizes. Those always stay on site...I don't carry them on road trips.

Thanks again for all the opinions, everyone. I picked up my 10-pack today, $30 at Walmart. Now I just might have to spring for the interlocking wheel chock, but I think that'll have to be an Amazon purchase. Now if it were only camping weather...

They seem like they'd be difficult to get centered up on when setting up alone. I have a couple of 2x10's that are abnormally light (waterbed frame) that are a foot longer than my tires are apart, that gives my some leeway. Some of the places we go are on grass and the planks give me some flotation if it's soft.

Have had a set of the Lynx levelers since early on in our first trip last year. Would not be caught without them. May add a second set next year.

Let us know how the wheel chock works out. I had thought about getting one also as it would help especially when setting up solo.
