I have the high lift option on my 17 & found that I have plenty of room to add 4" pads to my stabilizers. I used chunks of 4" cedar fence posts. It saves lots of cranking or leg go blocks...

Padlin,,

On our 21' the jacks mount to a rail. This rail is then attached to the frame. The rail is free of foam to allow the movement of the sissor jacks.

The foam should not interfere with the mounting to the stabilizers.

B@L stabilizers on the 21 and 19…some people mention jacks but they are all stabilizers….

When I was asking about if the foam got in the way of the stabilizer install, I meant the add ons Tim used, like the Steadyfasts or BAL's. You know, stabilizer bars, as opposed to stabilizers.

Those add on's in that link will not work with the stabilizers, Tim may have had jacks installed. These are used on the large sob's that have a lot of movement.
Using the between the wheel units and your stabilizers, your Escape unit will not move. http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...win-pack/31695

Nope, if I understand what you said. I added the pads to the jack C crank downs and the bars ( from BAL) attach directly. The larger trailers have enough mass but the 15 is so light that we were moving it all over the place. ( when Julie was in the leu she accused me of wiggling the trailer on purpose. )These have solved that problem. Solid as a rock.

I would have used the single axle B@l tire leveler, they work very well with smaller trailers and torsion axle movement while sitting still.
