Valterra RV Stabilizer

Has anyone used the Valterra RV stabilizer on sprinter chassis? Where do you set them up?

Yes

I used this product on a previously owned Sprinter-based rig, a different make, and found it worked ok but not as well as stackable stabilizers. With the product you're asking about the only spot I could work with on that rig was the trailer hitch. With the stackable stabilizers I was able to position 2 rear, 2 front and get a more satisfying result.

Thanks. The stackables are a better deal. But I'm worried about the weight of a set of four, and the space they take. I didn't find that information online. Can you explain?

I used those on our Casita, worked very good, ... youtube video below at 1:30 shows how they stack, ... to make an even smaller storage package, I filed down one end of each t-handle rod, so they would slide out, ... that way you have four screws and one small rod, not four screws with t-handle attached, ... I only used one handle for all four, ... pull it out and go to the next jack, ... they are available from Amazon and Walmart for $35.82 .....

The aluminum jack stands do help. I cut four square pieces of plywood to put under them. On the top, I cut 3 1/2 pieces of 2x4 and drilled a recess to fit the top of the jack screw on one side and slotted them to fit the cross frame near the axles.
