RE: Anyone ever try the Traction pads for a Truck Camper

I would try those recovery mats and will try those gators, great idea. Had the smittybilt trax and got basically one and a half uses before they were trash. The traction knobs bust off very easily with diesel torque and edges also break very easily under the weight of a camper. After one use I knew they wouldn’t do in the long run. Mine broke in half the last time I used them in mud. My firewood and roll of carpet got me out, not the trax.

RE: Help! One of my jacks won't retract or extend!

It is correct that you can’t lift with three jacks, 1 front and 2 rear. You can though lift with 2 front and 1 rear. Like someone said it used to be 3 jacks tho they were not even front to back, one was about middle on one side. Huh? So while on the supports, remove the bad front and replace with a good rear. Walla, good to go until to you fix the now rear jack. A big yes to putting the bad jack on the back just in case it does tip, a little leg is better than none. And yes, probably a shear pin on the gear or the mechanism with the lever that transfers from manuel to auto, it’s plastic. I rebuilt mine last year but sitting here now the memory is a little foggy. Also, let a lot of air out of your rear tires so you don’t have to lift the camper as high. Maybe down to 15-20 lbs.
