Stab jack pads

Were the stab jack pads on the Jayfeathers an option from factory or just an added aftermarket item? I just have the jacks (no round pads) but hate lugging around addl wood blocks to keep the stab jack from sinking in soft ground. Just wondering if they may have been removed before my purchase. Going to order some next week.

I think you are talking about the round metal pad in your picture. We call them sand pads. I believe those are fairly standard now days. Not sure back in the day when your TT was made. Even with the sand pad, I still place a piece of plywood under them. Might be me, but with the plywood it seems like I do not have to tighten up the stabilizers as often.

They have not always been standard, though I don't know why. I do completely agree with Jagiven, they do seem to work better with a piece of plywood or something similar under them.

Good Morning exjay1, this link is from BAL's site. I think they are a supplier for Jayco.


Good Luck
