Today in Episode 47 I get into the basic leveling for 5th Wheel Trailers and Travel Trailers. Most trailers come with 4 stabilizers, one in each corner of the trailer. Fifth Wheels will usually have a stabilizer in each rear corner and the landing gear in the front of the trailer. The stabilizers are for stabilizing the trailer prior to leveling it. They are not designed for lifting the trailer, they capable of holding the weight of the trailer.
I get into the finer details of stabilizers, such as, the different types and how they can and should be used. In episode 48 I go into the details of Leveling a trailer without automatic leveling systems. There is nothing real tricky in doing this, it just more common sense and understanding how stabilizers work and what they are meant for.
It is also a good practice to use stabilizer pads under the foot of the stabilizer so the foot doesn't sink into the ground. The pads also help keep the trailer level because the feet of the stabilizers are not shifting in the soil.
