Wicked1 - Here are some pictures of the jacks I installed on the Shamrock. Just a warning, they went on fine where I have them mounted, but when retracted they do snug up against the lower trim on the slideouts. I don't really have a problem with that since I normally have the jacks extended before the slides go out and the jacks are retracted after the slides come in. If there is a reason to take the slides out when the jacks are retracted, I just lower the jack on that side a few inches.

Maybe a (Spacer) between the frame and Jack base? Then the (Opps Factor) will disappear? Youroo!!

Yeah I think it's a pretty easy fix, but at the time I didn't have long enough bolts (or the spacers) so that will be another day.

Also that is very nice of you helping this person out, would like to shake your hand oneday....

Thanks but no need to, I help all my friends I grew up with her brother but he lives far away so told him I would help her with her RV and her house, and I need nothing in return smiles on her kids faces and their thanking me is appreciation enough

Awesome, I was looking into a better 4-Point Jack system even looked at a system for a 5er but at $4,000 just not worth it. I may have to add a second set like you did, just tired of the shaking and shimmy in the Roo. Great Work though looks nice and clean. Do the XChocks help a lot

I was actually very surprised by the X-Chock. Once I added that I had virtually no forward and backward movement in the trailer at all and I only use it on one side! Well worth the money!!

I got a single one for about $43 on Amazon. I think you can get two for around $77, but I would try one first. I didn't need a second one.
