    I just bought a 97 Aljo 22' TT. I am new to the RV world and have a question about leveling jacks. I have seen stabalizers that just have a single leg and they aren't recomended for leveling a trailer, but the scissor jack style leveling jacks say they are rated at 5000 lbs each. Can these actually be used to level out my trailer or should I get the leveling blocks or just stack 2" x 8" pieces of wood? Any recomendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey roostonu, welcome to the forum. Buy the leveling blocks or use the 2x8 pieces of wood. The scissor jacks are for stabilizing the trailer so it won't rock when you move about in the trailer.

    roostonu most of the rv frames are not designed to level the rv with the jacks. you run the risk of twisting the frames. Do as DL said and level with blocks or boards then stablize with the scissor jacks.
