Can Ultra-Fab Ultra Scissor Jacks Be Used without Leveling Blocks


I have a 22.5 ft, 3900 dry weight travel trailer and find backing it on to leveling blocks very difficult. If I use 4 leveling jacks, one for each corner, would I still need to use leveling blocks?

The # UF48-979002 feature oversized footplates that are 4-1/2" wide by 9" long, so you could use them without leveling blocks. However, it's not uncommon for people to use leveling blocks like # A10-0918 or even wooden blocks under these jacks to provide extra stability (see photos). This is especially helpful in soft surfaces like grass or dirt.

What you do want to make sure is that you chock your wheels to prevent your travel trailer from rocking and rolling when parked. For that, I recommend the Buyers Products Wheel Chock Set # 337WC24483. They are connected by a 3 foot rope, which makes them super easy to put on and pull off.
