I hear you Jack. It just seemed strange to me that, seeing as leveling jacks came as an option, that here would not have been a pretty easy way for them to be installed and be functional without major hassle. Thus , I thought maybe hi lo might have included a shim plate that did not creat a nuisance when all was said done. The brochure clearly shows them mounted on a 15.

Agreed! I wonder if the jacks he's bought are a differed size than ours? I suppose I should crawl under my trailer to see if any of my jacks are shimmed to clear the skirting. I don't recall seeing any spacers or shims though.

On my 2805C there is a spacer welded between the jack and the frame. It is a box tube 4" high X 2" wide X 12" long. We have put aprox 40,000 miles on the HiLo and never drug the jacks. Our trips have included Alaska, Canada. Nova Scotia and all over the lower 48. We do not dry camp in rough back country.

thanks for your interest in my jack question. Attached is a photo of
what I am talking about. I hope you can make it out.

I bought a jack rated at 7500 lbs which I know is overkill, but
I dont think a 5000 lb jack will change my situation any.

they are standard scissor jacks by easy lift.

thanks,
dennis

Interesting

Most of ours are a single "leg" with a floating circular "foot" and , thus, they work regardless of angle they are at. IF I am high because of leveling blocks they may be almost 90 degrees or down to 45. I just looked at mine- on the front there is 1 inch L angle bracket welded to the frame and the leveling bracket is attached to the horizontal part of of it. On the back- it is attached pretty flush to the frame - but mounted at an angle to the frame i.e not horizontal nor in line. I didnt have a camera with me or I would have taken a picture. I will try to get one later. Can you return what you bought? If so- you might want to look around for the other style and then crawl around and see if Hi-Lo had things in place to mount them. On my front ones- from frame to retracted "foot" is four inches.

this is what I have,sort of, with an added pad:

BAL Light Trailer Stabilizing Jacks 20 - $51.90

Dennis, I posted pictures of mine in your other "I'm Not Stable" thread. Use spacers.

Also-

Per your photo- theoretically there is not any reason you couldn't mount those with the screw facing towards the back rather than the side, or at least angled towards the corners.
