any one use Fastway Flip Jack Foot on an Oliver II

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find a good Jack block solution and ran across these  https://www.fastwaytrailer.com/flip-jack-foot   They semi-permanently attach to the jack base so I thought they would be one less thing to worry about since they are attached.  We are not picking up our Ollie until Sept '19 so I cant run out to see if this would work on the Ollie rear stabilizers or front jack.  Does any one out there use these?

 

Thanks,

 

Chad

If you only park on level horizontal surfaces it would probably work great, it looks very cool and it would save some time and hassles. Read the cautions in steps 7 and 8 in the installation manual..... for my normal camping conditions and boondocking I could not use this. Maybe that is just their lawyers talking, but it sounds as if it is meant for flat slabs only. If I camp on those, I normally don’t even extend the stabilizers or front jack at all....

Another (potential) downside is when you would need to lower the front of the camper as far as you can get it.  This device would add another couple of inches - the device plus a wood block to rest the device on as per the picture in step 9 of the owner's manual.  However, if you always camp on relatively level sites, this should not be much of a problem.

Thank you so much for your feedback.  I may go for a more low tech solution to start with and see where we spend more time camping , in nice flat RV resorts or in lumpier State/Fed/local parks.

If you needed to use your front jack with the foot raised up, you could place a small scrap of heavy rubber under it (like from a mudflap) and it would only take up 1/4” at most. I would be more concerned about stressing or bending parts when it used normally but on a slope.

 

BTW “low tech” is often the best choice for an RV.....
