Jack stands
« on: January 29, 2017, 07:17 PM »
I need to get my RV up and off the ground for an extended period so I can service the brake system and drop the fuel tank(unrelated project).


I don't trust metal Jack stands so I'm curious what you guys have built.


Safety first and foremost.

Then a bigger broader search of "cribbing",... and do a DANG through study!!!


Steel stands, wooden "cribs" or other support and structures doesn't matter much,... what matters most is your life!!! And it will certainly depend on your best choice and manner of support.


Good topic and thread noted above.

Definitely do a 'search'. There is a whole lot of info and suggestions here on site re your concerns.
Losing weight - yours, not the RV - by inadequate vehicle support is NOT something we wish to read about.

Wood cribbing is by far the safest...when done correctly
