Tip for Using Stabilizer Jacks With Your Camp Trailer

Stabilizer jacks--one for each corner of the trailer--are customary equipment for use with a camping trailer. They help keep the trailer frame level and steady as you're moving about inside.

But, without their own means of support, stabilizer jacks can sink into soft ground or warm asphalt.

To prevent this, cut 4 pieces of lumber or plywood to a size about 2 or 3 inches bigger, all around, than the footprint of your jacks. Then simply place one of these beneath each jack before you tighten it up.
