Can you call me,?
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

I want to be sure that I fully understand the problem here. Are these LEVELING JACKS or are these STABILIZER JACKS? The latter are NOT to be used to raise the trailer off the ground, but ONLY to stabilize it from rocking. Please clarify this for me and I can help you sort this out. Or you might want to give Lippert Technical a call at(###) ###-####and discuss this with them. Thanks, Randall
