I had a jack ruined by road debris on a trip this summer. I got a pair at Camping World and changed them both because they were heavier than the originals.

The holes were just a bit off but after a few passes with a round file they fit fine.

Iíve thought about making them quick detachable. Good project for the off season, if it warms up a little.

I go through a set about every 6 months- towing nose high and a lot of miles will do that!

I have bought from etrailer and from RV parts stores. Wherever is cheaper.

I had to replace my stabilizers as well and found these to be a great replacement for my 2017 Grey Wolf 26DBH

At the moment, summer is all over the place, as usual. From low 20's C to high 30's, in the same week. One day it was 28 degrees then within a few minutes we had hail stones the size of golf balls and it was still in the low 20's. It lasted about 5 minutes. Lots of water on the ground and lots of damage to stuff caught without shelter. Cars especially were covered in dents. Not as bad as one 5 years ago, the hail was tennis ball size and it went on for nearly 10 minutes. People were hospitalized with broken bones, head wounds etc. That was the year roof repair businesses had big pay days.

This week it has been running between 25 and 28 degrees C. The really hot days come in Jan thru early March, when the tennis is on.

It's all pretty normal actually. We are now waiting for bush fire season.

I found replacement RV scissor jack/stabilizers at Harbour Freight. They are of good quality and probably the same thing you would find elsewhere for twice the price! Check them out here.... https://m.harborfreight.com/2-1-2-ha...ack-96406.html

We are a lot further south than Sydney. We are in one of the nicer parts of the country (IMHO), Knoxfield, southeast of Melbourne at the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, near Ferntree Gully. Google it. Been here since 1969, when there were no sealed roads, no sewerage and no storm drains and orchards all around. At the start of each (almost predicatble) winter, I would build a bridge from the front porch to the 'street' so we didn't have to paddle through ankle deep water/mud. Couldn't park the car in the drive 'cause some days we wouldn't get out, at least not without a tow (no 4x4). Ah, the good old days.
