Any ideas as to how to make the slotted drill adaptor. The c-jacks my friend has have a pin that comes out of each side of the screw. Any ideas?

Thank you.

Seann45,
Thank you. I will be sure to use a thick socket.

Can't beat the electric jack for convenience.

Here is the tool I use:

Grab a rod heat it up bend it get the drill out and you have power jacks. My stabilizers are 3/4 socket. I just cut a ratchet extension and put it in my drill.

Thumbs up "power" jacks

I just bought a 18 volt 1/2 inch 400 lb torque Mastercraft drill for $89.00 including as and 2 batteries from Manards. I had a 18 volt but not enough torque, In the rain the drill is the way to go.

We have a 18V drill, with an adapter and a 3/4 inch socket. Does anyone suggest using an extender bar between the adapter and the socket? We have a 23J hybrid which we pick up two weeks from now.

I've found no need for an extender with my trailer jacks.

me either. I do use a deep well socket though. Not sure if there was a reason, or if that is what Lowes had when I picked up the one I leave in the cubby.

rvrev2 - I used an allen wrench in my electric drill on the scissors jacks we used with our Scamp before getting the Jayco.
