How To Level Your Trailer From Front to Back

So now that we’ve established our level of side-to-side at the tires with the links levellers, it’s time to uncouple from my tow vehicle. Again, links levellers under the front to
support the weight. Now we’re ready to pull our tow vehicle out of the way. Now we’ve uncoupled so we’re ready to level front to back with our unit. Either have the level on the floor inside the unit, on your counter, or even on the a-frame here at the front and simply lower until we bring her into level.

And now we’re ready to drop our stabilizing jacks to take the sway out of the unit. Okay, so now with our trailer levelled on site, we’re ready to use our stabilizing jacks to take the momentum out of the unit for when you’re getting in and out of the unit or when the winds come up. I like to place a pad underneath my stab Jack to help support the weight and now I’m just going to run my jacks down onto the pad and then give it a few extra turns to stiffen it up.

As we go around the unit getting all four corners, that will now make it a nice solid trailer for your camping weekend. As well, each unit has a three-quarter inch stabilizing
Jack crank. If you’re fortunate enough to have a cordless drill with a three quarter inch
socket on the end.
