Replacement Stabilizer Jack 2015 ROO 21SS

Due to an episode of dumbassery, I'm now in the market for a new right-front scissors-type stabilizer jack on our camper. And I can't find anything on the jack or in my paperwork that indicates who the manufacturer is.

Can anyone give me the name of the manufacturer, or recommend a suitable replacement? From the jacks I've seen online, the attachment plates look like they're drilled to fit just about any trailer on the market. Has anyone had problems fitting one onto a ROO? Thanks!

I don't have a Roo but bent a jack on my old trailer, they are pretty generic and will fit any trailer. Look to see the gage and get a heavier one if you can since your replacing it anyway. I hated when I did it. But like anything, things happen and don't let it ruin your day Good Luck you shouldn't have a problem check etrailer out. Don't buy it from your STEALER for sure...

Unfortunately I am now in the same situation, and think they are the BAL 24” scissors leveler, correct?

Also not a Roo owner, but I went through a scissor jack about every 6 months with my old camper. Check the height and just buy from either Amazon or eTrailer. If you have a Camping World nearby, I saw great prices in the stores occasionally.

Why did you go through one every 6 months?

Anger issues, mostly. Whenever I'd get mad, I'd get the crank out and would just raise and lower them. Apparently super speed makes them melt.

Nah, my fifth wheel ran nose high once I switched to the Trail Air/Tri Glide pin box. I raised it up and lowered my hitch and still was slightly nose high.

I seemed to bend them all to crap about every 6 months on a parking lot entrance, campground entrance, or once - in the dirt at a fairgrounds because I couldn't see in my mirror because someone was standing/riding on my running boards from the check-in to my spot.

Ditto. I did it to my roo roughing it. I managed to bang it back in place and now when I take the drill to it, it wobbles down and up but still functional.

I wouldn’t want a stronger one; the idea is for the scissor jack to sacrifice itself and not bend or twist the trailer frame.
