Hello, what do all of you use to support the tongue jack when camping. I have a 31' wildwood 29BHSS. When setting up or just storing, i usually use a bunch of pieces of scrap wood to support the tongue jack. What would be better. Thanks tom tcpaint@verizon.nettcpaint@verizon.net

I have a fastway flip mounted on the end of my tongue jack. Its nice because it extends the tongue jack length about 6". I also use a big piece of 4x6 timber that I cut from a big post/beam that I found in the in laws barn and place that under the jack itself.

I also use 4 chunks of that same post for under my stabs as well.
