    Help !!
    I am having difficulties locating the manufacturer and model of the stabilizing/leveling jacks that are used on my 2008 Starcraft Centennial 3612!
    It does have the 3/4" hex drive shaft to raise and lower the leg support.
    One got damaged and I would like a matched replacement.

    Have a picture?
    Many of these jacks are pretty standard and it shouldn't be hard to find a replacement.

    Most popups with crank style stabilizers use those manufactured by Norco under their BAL product line.

    https://www.amazon.com/BAL-23225-Se...+jacks+for+tent+trailer&qid=1570706780&sr=8-6

    Note that these are stabilizers and are not intended to ever be used to level the trailer, as in never.

    Just "Stabilizing"! The quicker you think of them only for that use, the better for your camper. [:D]

    As above, a photo would help but from your description, they do sound like the type @GreyFox posted about.

    I am the same - meaning one of my four stabilizing jacks is also hard to lower. There is a washer I have to hold with one hand while turning the crank handle. So, I am thinking that I may have to replace it at some point. Can I not use one of the regular jacks like you can find at HF?

    Something like: https://www.harborfreight.com/3-ton-steel-jack-stands-61196.html

    Anything wrong in using them if needed?

    Thanks
    MC

    @WVhillbilly , @bheff , yes, I think the scissor jack would be a better choice :). Thanks!

    WAY overkill for a popup.

    That is exactly I need what I am looking for thank you!
    Now my only other concern would be the bolt pattern measurements, do you think those would be pretty much universal or I may have to drill new holes to attach to bottom of pup?
