I don't crawl anywhere to lock the T handles ... I just squat at the leg, reach out, and tighten the T's. For those of you not so limber ... no offense meant.

This happens when DW gets the slides out before I get the stabs down.

... and as dieselguy said: no offense to those who are not so limber.
I turned 69 in April but I still don't have to put a knee on the railroad gravel to tighten my T-bolts!

DW doesn't operate the slide-outs until I give her the signal!

Don't what all the hubub is about concerning JT Strongarms installed on level-up system. Installed it on my '13 36 CKTS in 2013 and have not had problem one. BTW we generally use our Creek about 5-6 month out of each year. Besides I have yet to find any devise on any component of the level-up system the causing the jack to rotate! We are just completing an odyssey that began 7/17, ending 9/5. Don't know how many retract/extend cycles without any problems whatsoever.

Just sayin.

Travel safe & enjoy

I had the JT system on my unit they worked great, no welding required at all. I then switched to the level up system, Lippard removed my JT's and said I couldn't use them. After I found out that you can use them on that system. But a eye has to welded to the pad, or you can just buy the big foot pad that has a eye already on them. The ram doesn't rotate going up or down as they say. So you can install them. It takes time to learn how blocks to put down under each leg to stop the movement. The longer the stroke the more movement you have. So shorten it up with the level up system. The pad itself has movement in it for the ground you setting up on not much but some play. My level up system works well to stop movement as long as I shorten the stroke. I would highly recommend the JT system it works great and will take over 90% out of the movement. I don't understand what would need welding? I can't say anything on the stead fast system being I never seen one close up....
