You are a lot younger than I am and I just bend down with a cordless drill and in 5 secs or less the jack is down. Breaking camp and another 5 secs and the jack is up & stowed. Total time to engage & stow jacks, less than 30 secs and I'm not even in a hurry, just exceptionally lazy!

Total cost: $80/pr.

Sounds good! I'll put them on my Mod Wish List. But with only 3-4 trips a year, for now, I'll keep doing what I'm doing! And no, I am probably not younger but poorer! Also fat and what hair has not turned gray has turned loose!

Timex, if you're still working, I am older. I only work on doing nothing and my big problem with that is,: I never know when I'm through.

Just an odd ball question. Can we count the nights spent sleeping in the rv while its parked in the driveway as nights camped?. I would love to have camped 53 days so far this year, but with our crazy work schedules its only a puny 5

Just have to retire and you can make 365/yr. After working 50+ yrs I just gave up. Got tired of 3-4 different motels and 6-8 different flights every week. Delta said I flew 499,??? miles in 30 months before I retired.
