That adapter seems like the kind of thing you could make out of a 12-point socket if you can’t buy one.


That would be good having a square drive. Use a short extension in the drill chuck.

****, Steel supplier is closed on Sat. looks like I'll have to wait to play next week. I'm in no danger of running out of stuff to do today.

Looks like Panther RV is out of stock on the drill adapter.

Look on Amazon, I’m seeing several sellers there that claim to have some available.

Yep I looked on Panther as was suggested. Got it on the way. Dang pricey for what it is. I should be wealthier instead of so good looking. I'll roll the dice and hope it fits.

Even with swing-out brackets my Bigfoot would not fit on my Ram dually. I had to add a 4" extension, but the way the brackets work on the Bigfoot I had to use 4" channel. Otherwise, the jacks would not lock into the open or closed position.
With that much extension I still have only about 1" clearance on each side for the fenders.


I looked today and 3" is just about max because of the length of the jack motor cable. Unless I could mod the cable length. Then I'd have trouble when I moved the jacks to the inboard position.

I have a 2003 Lance lite 1025 and from the pics it's the same setup as NRALIFR. I'd be happier with even more clearance but when I loaded the other day it was an inch or less. That's just too tight.

If you have almost an inch of clearance now, using 3" flat bar spacer as NRALIFR, would move jack tube out about 2", giving you almost 3" of clearance.
Other than cable length, possible truck interferance my opinion is you want to minimize how much you move load out due to leverage its adding.

Looks good!

Talk about dejavu, at first I thought I was looking at pictures of MY camper.
