I see some tear construction pages that show jacks coming off the back corners.Are these for leveling your tears or to keep it frome bouncing when the wife tosses and turns?
I built a couple jack stands for mine but,I think they make matters worse than if it was setting on its tires.As near as I can tell,to be more effective,they would have to be welded to the frame to work properly.I also noticed that the tongue mounted jack has a lot of slop in it.Do you leave your tears hooked to the tow vehicle when sleeping?Will my wifes tossing and turning cause us to roll down the hill and into the river?

Mine barely reaches the floor. I think I need to lower them, but I don't want them to be visible when in the up position.
