Installed the four point Rieco ground control system. The rear jacks are located about 8" behind the rear wheels. Once the rig is level I deploy the rear stabilizer jacks. With all six points supporting the unit it's solid. Now maybe a step support and something like the JT armstrongs but we are happy with how solid the unit is.

Can you post a link to that support? I weigh 255# and that might help with step longevity as well.

Life is a cruel teacher. She gives the test first; the lesson then follows.

I also agree with OC concerning solidifying the steps,,,,,it made all the difference for us. Just stick some 2 X 12's under them.
