New to the forum and would am seeking some advice:
I have a semi-new 2014 Jayflight SLX Baja. I took it out for the first time over the weekend and set it up on some un-even ground in a camp area.
I unsuccessfully tried to level the trailer using the stabilizer jacks, and ended up bending one of the stabilizers.
In hindsight, I realized that was a dumb idea. After doing some research I understand now that leveling must be done using a wheel block or something similar, and stabilizers are used for just that: stabilizing.
Could I have cause any significant frame damage by doing so? It seems as if the stabilizers bore the brunt of the mistake (they do seem pretty flimsy), but then again, my trailer only weights 2500 lbs.
All the jacks are still in working order, just a little tweaked and bent.
