No, it's on (4) 5 ton jack stands, landing jacks, axle stabs and rear stabs. It ain't going nowhere. Probably more secure than if it were on tires/wheels.

OK, it is more secure, don't have to worry about tires going flat and it sure isn't going to roll anywhere with 10 metal supports under it. The jack stands alone are rated for 20 tons total and the 4 stab jack legs are reinforced as are the struts holding the legs and the channels the legs slide in.

Oh yeah, my bad....forgot you have landing gear and TWO sets of stab jacks.

Ms Frankie was nice enough to do her antique button presentation for me and she did it inside their RV. I noticed that there was NO bounce, and I do mean *no* bounce, in their trailer.

OC has an extra set of reinforced electric stab jacks installed mid-ship. That 5er is solid as a slab of concrete!

Here is the evidence. Pics were taken after dark but Sneak knew "no pics, didn't happen".

He also drilled the bumper ends and installed retention pins, and built Sneak a bottle jack "stabilizer tube" I guess you'd call it. I saw it and asked "what is *that*?" and I will NOT tell you what he said it was! Newp, ain't gonna say it!
I see that MR. Dunn took good care of you. You will not find finer people them those two, I concur. I hope you enjoyed your stay with them, Sorry we didn't get a chance to swing by on our way home. I always enjoy myself when I go there.....Safe travels..Looks great.....

Got the new stems put in and re-balanced the tires. Found out that the 507 Flow Thru sensors throw the balance off by 0.5 oz. SO, make sure you balance the tires WITH the sensors on.
