RV Jacks and Stabilization – The First Requisites

 

 

Of interest mostly to RVers, jacks and stabilization are of primary concerns that are of utmost importance especially when they are in the camping grounds or are about ready to park their RV. This is the time to enjoy the view, the air, the freedom and the adventure only an RV can give.

 

Without your jacks and stabilizers, you cannot park properly enough or at all. Without proper parking there will be no enjoyment of the view, no fresh air, no cooking, no meeting with new friends, no adventure, until proper parking is done.

 

RV Stabilizers

 

For an RVer, it is quite important to know how to operate a jack, a leveling block and a stabilizer.

The first order of business is to make sure your RV is parked well. (Use a pair of chocks to keep the RV in place.)

 

Next, level the trailer. It is important to use the blocks under a stabilizer especially on uneven to soft grounds. Do not under- or over-extend the stabilizer at all instance. Stabilization is holding the trailer in position once it is lifted.

 

Stabilizing is eliminating the swaying and bouncing of the RV after it had been leveled. The stabilizing jacks are instruments that help keep the RV level while being parked.

 

RV types and stabilizers

 

Towable RVs (fifth wheels, campers, travel trailers) tend to have few points in contact with the surface and they need the stabilizers to prevent any swaying when the RV is parked.

 

The fifth wheel is most likely to use them because the weight is placed on the body of the fifth wheels like most other lighter RVs. A heavy trailers or an RV can stabilize itself on the ground with its own weight. (Lighter trailers usually shift from side to side when there is movement inside.)

 

RV Jack Types

 

The scissor jack stabilizers use 2 heavy-gauge tubes that expand to form a box truss. The cross brace stabilizer has wheel chocks that are used to eliminate any swaying of the trailer. The cross brace also folds up together with the scissor jacks and remains suspended when the trailer is on transit.

 

One downside though is that after a long trip, setting up a manual scissor jack can be tiring. It is even more strenuous for a taller RV because the standard manual stabilizers are still of the standard height.

Extending this through a manual jack to their full height can prove to be useless.

 

The electric RV stabilizers are usually bolted on a frame to provide you the chance to extend them quickly with a simple press of a switch. This allows you to prevent swaying or rocking the trailer at the campsite.

 

Tips on good stabilizers

 

The better ones usually have simple designs to give your trailer the solid foundation on a surface. Most of them work well wi8th leveling jacks on 5th wheels, travel trailer, pop-ups and motorhomes.

 

Usually, these stabilizers are easy to set in minutes without the use of other tools. This makes them easier to store simply because they are easy to fold away. For an RVer, these jacks and stabilizers are most ideal anywhere on any recreation vehicle.
