    Messed up one of my stabilizer jacks on our first trip out a few months ago. [LOL]
    BAL has a replacement set of 2 I can get for a fair price i guess. Is BAL a good replacement for OEM? Would you recommend a different brand?

    The jack is a 20 inch C style not the Scissor style.

    My Palomino came standard with the BAL stabs, and they work great.

    The BAL stabilizers are a good choice vs the Atwood- easier to set up and takedown, they do a great job be sure to get the sand pads as well!

    Almost willing to bet that if you have the C style stabs, the OEM ones are most likely made by B.A.L anyways ...

    They are as good or better than OEM, and if memory serves me correctly, the OEM ones have the BAL stamp on them? Just a note for those of us that have the screw type stabilizers. Don't use the self tapping screws that they come with. I recommend that you get a drill, a hand full of quarter inch bolts, washers and nylon lined lock nuts and use those instead. I've had the unfortunate experience of losing one of my stabilizers on a paved road. Where it fell off I have no idea, but it did fall off. I have since removed all the self tapping screws and replaced them with real fasteners.
