Save a Jack?

Has anyone tried Save a Jack? It allows you to remove your stabilizers in the back so they donít bottom out. We have an incline drive way and bent up one of our stabilizers so looking for an alternative.

Are you talking about this: https://www.rvupgradestore.com/Save-...xoCoBQQAvD_BwE
It looks like a quick removal for the scissor jacks.

That would give you a little more clearance, but would it be enough? There might be something else that would hit if you took off the scissor jacks. Some people have added 'skid wheels' that protect your equipment.

Other solutions are to angle the trailer as you back up if you have the room, or putting down boards at the bottom of the drive to decrease the angle.

I have had them on the front of my unit for many years. Works great, love them and use them all the time, two seconds to slide the jack on and push in the holding pins, crank jack down. There is a difference in 'stabilizers' (which do little to 'stabilize') and scissor jacks. I have both (front and back) on my unit. If you have 'slides', have the slides fully extended before setting up the jacks. The jacks may put pressure on the frame and make it harder for the slides to go in and out. Remove the pressure on the jacks and then retract slide when leaving. The angle of your driveway is another issue. Some people, who have a longer unit has attached 'skid wheels' https://www.etrailer.com/dept-pg-RV_...iAAEgI4YvD_BwE to help keep from dragging the back of the unit .
