A Frame corner stabilizer jacks

On my last outing with my T21TBHW (same as A213HW), I turned left off the pavement onto a dirt road and heard the sickening sound of serious scraping. I had just drug both driver side stabilizer jacks. The front was not too bad - a few taps with a hammer got it serviceable again. The rear jack was destroyed! I had even managed to bend the adjustment bolt. Happily the water tank and bumper showed no obvious damage.

Since I would like them all to be the same type, I searched through my documentation that came with the trailer and found nothing - no manufacturer, no model number, nothing. I didn't see anything like that on the jacks either.

Anybody know the model of these jacks or can recommend a suitable replacement from Amazon or etrailer? My local dealer offered to sell me a pair for$116 and install them for $67 each! Surely I can do better. Installation looks to be a snap, just 4 bolts either at the frame or at the bracket.

Thanks!

Replacing them yourself is easy. Did you bend the bracket attached to the frame rails?

I have a 5th wheel and my grandfather bought a set to replace the one that was destroyed. Nothing special but made sure it had the right bolt pattern. He bought them from camping world.

The website appears to only have truck camper jacks. I'm looking for scissor jacks.

Amazingly, the bracket is perfect even though the jack was obliterated. I will check out Camping World. Thanks.

You'll have much better luck with etrailer than camping world.

Corner scissor jacks really need to be looked at as being sacrificial parts.
You will be far better off with them bending than tearing up your frame. Do not use grade #8 fasteners to attach them.

I am using Harbor Freight to replace mine as needed. They seem to be a little better than what was on the trailer.
