If you need to adjust for weight handling, either get a decent bottle jack or those screw up jacks (I still carry mine in my 5'ver).

See them in this photo:
I have a bottle jack and today I messed around with trying to get my rig level and at the same time free my screen door from sticking. I found out I canít do both so I have it almost level and the door doesnít stick as bad. I can live with both.
I appreciate the comments on the scissor jacks. Thatís what I had always thought but the former poster seems to have no trouble cranking them down. So I used the bottle jack to get it as good as I could and then used the stabs to basically just keep it there. I guess common sense is the best advice here.
One does have to wonder why TTís have such puniy stabs! We certainly canít keep it from jiggling but thatís the fun of RVíng!! Thanks for your advice- based on experience which is the best teacher!!
