First Mod-2016 23MBH

Got my first mod done tonight. DIY braces for the stabilizer jacks. The scissor jacks provided by Jayco are very flimsy and offer no means of restraining movement at all. The front of my trailer is now very solid; I will be doing the rear jacks tomorrow. Click image for larger version

Very cool. Was this part of a kit, or is it self engineered?

Self engineered with a little help from some other posts I have seen on another rv site. $55 in parts and an hr of labor.

That is awesome! I was just outside ours this morning watching it move side-to-side while people where moving around inside and wondering how to fix. I originally thought the movement while inside was front to back but it was definitely side-to-side this morning so this solution looks ideal. Did you fabricate yourself? Thanks!

I put a pair of the BAL brand Locking Arm Stabilizers on my 20MRB last week. I'm definitely not as talented as Bldrman. If you aren't either, this is what I posted in this thread:

You are giving me too much credit; it's really not too hard. If I wanted to go all out I would have welded on heim joints but this was quick and dirty. If I have time I will do a write-up when I install the rear ones.

Where do you find the parts for this mod? Looks like the rod allows for it to slide in/out when raising and lowering the stabilizer. Do you have to lock it in place and is that a pretty strong lock?
Where can you find the parts?

Good job. It looks great.
