Thanks Old Coot

Finally got around to getting some jacks from the wrecking yard. They only had some small ones but they both matched. Put them under our Wind Jammer and there is about zero bounce now. Really didnt have to put much tension on them either for them to work. Works great and both jacks cost me $10.00 and blocks were from brothers new fence so a win win.

Now, if you can make or have someone make you a couple of U brackets with a bolt thru the tops and weld them to the top of the jacks at the right angle you won't even have to store them.

Yup I'm looking at doing that. But trailer is at a seasonal site and I'm layed up with a broken foot in a cast. And this was about as much as I can do for now till I get out of the cast. Come end of season I will be doing that.
I had forgotten that I got those jacks last fall at the wreckers and was looking at some camco ones. But another guy here has them and they are no where near as good as these as his are already bending.

Anyways thanks for the idea of using these.
