    I want to replace the pull down stabilizers with screw/crank down stabilizers.
    Has anyone done this or know if this conversion would work?
    Thanks

    I added these:http://tweetys.com/lighttrailerjacks17.aspx to the front of the pup where there were no jacks at all, and plan on putting a set in the rear to replace the pull down Atwood jacks. Easy to install, three screws each, minor drilling required.

    Thanks efehser, that's exactly the one I was considering.
    They look much easier to deal with.

    You might have to have those welded in.

    I replaced the old Atwood stabs with the BAL crank down type, like Eric's link, on my old Yuma. The Atwoods were bolted to the frame so they were easy to get off, however the bolts themselves were spot welded on the heads [:(] so I had to leave them in place. Installing the new stab was easy! Self tapping screw were provided in the kit, just drill new mounting holes, use a good Locktite (blue I think it was) and you are good to go! Really is easy as that.
    As a plus I was able to send the old Atwoods to another forum member who needed them! BONUS!

    I have a 1996 Coleman Sequoia and just bought 4 BAL stabilizers. I figure your trailer frame will be the same as mine. Can you describe where you mounted your new stabilizers?

    I like the jacks you posted. I've been using craftsman car jack stands...just on the front. Not the ideal set up but make it rock solid and stable.
