I can tell you for the price these can't be beat. More than anything I use mine for hooking and unhooking the truck from the trailer. You can stay in the truck if you need to raise or lower the trailer. I have tested ours up to 75' from the trailer and they work fine.

Great mod, easy to install. Really makes it easy to hookup the trailer and as Hunter11 said, great price.

Speaking of landing gear. What would make one leg longer than the other? I have had no damage to the legs, but noticed that I have to put a small lynx block under one leg to make it level when raising the trailer. I have not dug into this problem as I have had a string of bad luck and had to handle many other things first.

Check the mounting They have a notch on the frame side of the outer tube that should set against the frame ( Bottom of the clamping bracket)Should bein the same place on both sides. If that is good then I would hitch up and run then up and check to see if they are the same if not then unhook the cross bar and turnone so they are the same from the bottom of the leg to the bottom of the frame then hook it back up.

I hope that makes sence LOL

Keith, we took a trip to the Texas rally back in March and it rained on us most of the way. When we got there and I was setting up I noticed everything in the front storage compartment was soaked. Well I pulled everything out and dried it and we went on with the rest of the trip. When I got home I started looking and found that the U clamps that hold the landing gear legs were evidently not tightened well enough and had allowed the front legs to slide up about a 1/2' which broke the seal around the legs where they go through the front storage area hence causing water to come in soaking the front compartment.



I was able to hook it up to the truck and get the pressure off the legs then loosen the U bolts enough so that I could hit the top with a sledge hammer and bring them back down to the right hight then tighten them back down like they should have been from the factory. I then resealed around where they go through the storage area so it should be water tight now. Sorry for being long winded but that may have happend to one side of yours letting it slip and causing your issue.



I am beginning to think our trailers were built on the same day by the same people.Edited by: Hunter11

Keith;



After your suggestion, I was able to take a look at my legs (trailer that is) and sure enough that was my problem. You can see where the legs were tighted around the U clamps had moved down to make the leg shorter. I did not have the tools with me to fix, as I was taking it to the shop to get the gas line repaired where I broke with my last blown tire. I will fix this after getting it back from the shop.





Thanks for your help and yes I agree they must have been built the same day and I'm sure it was a holiday weekend on Friday. Had to be after 12 noon.

Well I am glad at least you know what the problem is with the front legs but sorry you have the same issue I had. If you keep having issues with your AC send me an email and maybe I can help with that to.
