PJ at Princess Craft has a video on one of their Elite II’s.  She does videos on all the trailers they sell.  They are going to be represented at the Texas Oliver rally at Inks Lake State Park in October and will sponsor a BBQ.

Nice video production.  There are at least 3 inaccurate comments during the tour.  First, the "battery" cut off switch inside is actually a disconnect for the solar panels. She also mentions the wheels are 16", but 2024's come with 15" wheel & tires.  Finally, she says the rear stabilizer jacks can be used to level the trailer. Unless something's changed, that's not something Oliver recommends.  Thanks for posting.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with using the rear jacks as levelers. In the early days, that was one of the of their main selling points. Then the lawyers got involved. The rear jacks are exactly the same as the front jack. Do you use the front jack to lift the trailer?

Also, there’s a difference between leveling and raising.  In the early days a buying point was that you could raise the trailer with the rear jacks.  As Steve says that’s before liability issues came in.  I still raise my trailer occasionally and have for years.  Of course, I’m not recommending it (must be those liability issues speaking).

PJ does a good job on her videos, memorizing a lot of features and capacities.  Mike

Just pointing out that Oliver doesn't consider the rear jacks to be for leveling.  Of course, like everyone else, we use the front jack to level front to back.  We then make minor side to side adjustments with the rear jacks after initially using ramp levelers when needed.  It's not a question of the load that the jacks can handle. Using the rear jacks to level side to side enough to raise the wheels off the ground can be dangerous since the wheel chocks on that side could be rendered ineffective.  Due to the potential liability, it's probably not wise for Oliver or their dealers to use the term "leveling" jacks.

That’s not something we do either, if we’re that far out of level we stack some lego’s to bring it up to a point we can use the jacks to tweak it.  Mike
