Well, if this thread is still alive i’ll put in my contrarian view. On another forum, I’m known as the “King of the Jacks-Off”, and for good reason. We never take our jacks with us, they’re always left at home because the routes we take are hazardous for jacks, what with the slow-mo attack of the boulders; passing trees or bushes; high curbs; interference with the side view mirrors; and that 160 pounds of outrigger weight. This is the same reason we don’t use frame mounted tie downs. They’re as susceptible to a mualing as jacks. In reference to the shopping of the truck if broken down; what do people with MoHo’s do when their rig breaks down? They go to a firm that has a tall RV bay just for that reason. In the 18 years; 245 nights; and countless off road excursions we’ve owned the Lance Lite 165-s, we’ve never needed the jacks for any reason on our off road trips. We’ve even had Jiffy lube or equivalent change the oil on an Alaska trip by pulling into their extra tall bay. jefe See these short clips: the jacks don’t stand a chance.
