Using Ultra-Fab # UF19-950500 To Support Pin Weight of 14K Fifth Wheel


I have a 14,000lb newmar fifth wheel trailer that is parked and doesnt go on the road . I dont own a truck or hitch. the hitch weight is around 2600lb, I was wondering if I order a 5000lb fifth wheel stabilizer if it is safe to raise the fifth wheel legs to adjust the level on the camper and put the weight on the stabilizer momentarily to accomplish it.


Expert Reply:

The Ultra-Fab # UF19-950500 stabilizer is meant to supplement the landing gear of your fifth wheel, it's not meant to support the pin weight of the fifth wheel on its own. Your best bet would be to find somebody who has a truck equipped with a hitch, and use the truck to support the fifth wheel as you make the level adjustments.
