DIY stabilizers

This wasn't my idea, I found it on a Jayco forum.
32" long 2x4 with 30 cuts on each end 3/8 eyehooks in the inside edge centered. 1" ratchet strap attached to hook eyes. Tucked 2x4 into the top edge of the flange on the steel eye beam frame. Tighten straps up. Actually slightly lifts the trailer when ratcheting them up tight. I pulled the 2x 4 from off the scrap pile at work, the hook eyes are about $1.25 each, and I already had the straps(4 pack for $5.99 at harbor freight).

I saw a guy using these in CG this summer. He said it works really well.

Watch out for one of those ratchet straps breaking, that buckle flying through the air can cause a serious injury.
