I use what I have read on another thread was not a good idea as well. Thats plastic wheel chocks. I hammer in with a mallet. I have wood ones but I wanted to cut down on the weight I am carrying.
I also have thought about the slide-out jacks. Just to take them to short of the Mississippi not Kansas or Omaha. (light touching) Kind of like what I do with my wally world jacks I use under my step. Just light contact to firm things up a bit. I have also thought about the bars you can add to your jacks that run to the frame.
Anyway my unit when set to stable ...just aint stable enough for my liking.
May be I should add a couple of scissor jacks??
Anyway I thought I would throw this out there at the peanut gallery and see what comes back
This site is really awsum, I have learned so much here in a year!!

Okay..let me simplify this..what should I try first??

You will just have to either bolt thru the round pad or weld the lower mount for the struts.

Id fabricate a bracket or have a machine shop make one that goes around the very end of the cylinder that clamps tight around the cylinder then has a tab coming off of that's to mount your strong-arm to .

My opinion.

Lower pad can turn as he suggested which won't do him any good.

Is it necessary for the pad to turn? Once a mounting tab is welded or bolted to it, it will align with the strut and when it has wt on it, will not turn.

Not sure.
Would be a pain to line pad up everytime if it did turn slightly while in transport.

It was suggested by a Lippert rep. that after being at a site for a week, the level up system should be reactivated to re level the coach, if you're staying put.
