Will Using Front to Back and Side to Side Stabilizers and Jacks Damage the Frame on a Trailer


I have a 2010 Dutchmen Fourwinds 270RL with a slide out. I was wondering if I use this for leveling left to right as I use my tongue jack to level from front to back what are my chances of warping my frame. Also how close to my wheels does this need to be mounted?


Expert Reply:

Stabilizer jacks are not meant to do any lifting, just support weight and make it NOT feel like you are on a boat when you move about inside your trailer. So the chance of causing frame damage to the trailer is statistically zero.

We have just what you are looking for. Ultra-Fab has two sizes of slide out supports - sold in quantities of 2 per package.

The Ultra-Fab # UF19-960003 supports can be adjusted from 26" to 47" and are rated for 1400 pounds each.

The Ultra-Fab # UF19-960001 supports can be adjusted from 16" to 28" and are rated to support 1400 pounds each.

These supports keep your camper in tip-top shape. Extendable struts work in tandem to keep your slide out level and to prevent sagging and damage to your RV's extension tubes. Quick-release handles make mounting a snap.

We recommend a support for each gear track under the slide out. I placed a link to a demonstration video below.
