Landing gear stands

Iíve built these from 6 1/2 inch pipe 8 inches high as you can see I have a 2 inch block underneath in this situation I needed the block . The homemade stands will prevent you from bending the legs if there is a miscommunication I know because it happened the stands will roll instead of bending the jack leg . I was hooked up into the Anderson hitch when miscommunication happened in rolled the stands .

I got the Andersen ones and love them. My landing gears are round though.

That's where I got the idea from Anderson they say the stand protects the landing gear from bending if force is on the hitch and landing gear direction.

Unless Iím mistaken, I think youíre referring to the RV SnapPads that fit on the round 9Ē jack feet. My understanding is that the Anderson is designed to work directly with the 9Ē jack feet and are magnetic in order to stick to them when lowering. I think the SnapPads would interfere.

I actually just lost the one behind my passenger side rear axle. It was there when I left the campsite but wasn’t when I parked. Of course it had to go 2 months outside the 2 year warranty. Oh well. Ring up the cash register.
