Scissor jacks or telescopic (stab) jacks
I've never really thought about the application differences and/or the pros & cons between the 2. My 2010 Sandpiper and previous Flagstaff has/had scissor jacks on the back. At the RV show week before last most of the new FWs had telescopic/stab jacks. (Could it be as simple as the cost of stab jacks to the manufactureres are a freckle less, so that's what they are using these days?)
I know that both are only to be used for stabilization. I also know that for optimum stabilization either are more effective if you add stabilizer rod to them. But, since the show, I've wondered which is best and what are the different applications...if any. I'm sure my fellow FRFers will have lots of opinions and knowledge on the subject.
So, I thought this would be a good one for us to discuss. (I searched the forum for a bit and did not find any discussions specifically on this subject.)
