Those are nice. I may look into those more for jacks added near my axles but they seem pricy for what they are. Cheaper to get new jacks once but not twice. Who would have thought that CW had them cheaper as well.

Good idea!

Also, you can just use removable jacks, (I use them as stabilizers instead of the levelers, once the coach is first leveled).

I needed to replace 2 stabilizers, went to my local auto supply (Canadian Tire) and got 2 real scissor jacks, planning to have my local weld shop fabricate brackets. Not too expensive, and much stronger than the originals.

Cheers.

What would concern me with this approach is that the stronger you make the jack, the more you endanger the frame if you snag one,.

BINGO !!! Did that to my popup in 84. The stabilizers from the factory wouldn't hold up a tricycle.

I'd like to see that. I'd also like to see where you could park the thing for a stay-over.

Go to a salvage yard and grab 2 matching jacks out of similar cars. Eg, 2 GM W-Bodies (Grand Prix, Buick Regal, Chevy Lumina). You'll get them a lot cheaper than buying new.
