Angled leveling jacks

All hydraulic landing gear comes down on an angle.
Why doesnít the Ground Control come down on an angle?
It would be way more stable.

Elongate the holes and put some spacers behind the bottom holes of the middle/rear jack mounting brackets?

My guess is the additional stress it would add to a screw type gear. Mine have an ever so slight angle on them.

Mine are straight as an arrow.
I did notice around 2019, when I was poking around my dealers lot, they looked slightly angled. Didnít know if I wasnít seeing things right.

Probably depends on how much you had been drinking Klassic..........LOL

On the Mobile Suites I had before this Jayco, they were hydraulic and were angled. It was enough you could see it.
