While we were in our TT on a beautiful lakeside site a sudden storm hit at 3:30 am. As the rains and the winds hit with a ferocity to cause a screeching sound like the siding was being ripped off, the lightning lit the interior and the "fasten your seat belts" sign came on, It occured to me, when do you get out? We all know the comparative safety of an auto with four rubber tires, but the stabilizer pads and the front jack, and the umbilical water and electrical conections might negate that advantage in a tt. I resisted the thought to lower the Winegard that should have been down much earlier, packed only a few necessity items to return to the nearby GMC.

Could tt use of rubber pads on front jack and stabilizer pads give back some of that safety?
