deltabravo, thanks for the reply. I just, hopefully, changed my signature. I made sure that I click the SAVE CHANGES button. And at the top of the page it said that my changes have been saved.

Duramax is one word, so that needs changed too.


Lol, it must be hard for you to handle the rest of the world that isn’t as perfect as you are…
Fwiw, that was a douchey comment.

I recently purchased a Camper Cradle too, it made loading so much quicker and easier to get it perfect every time. I used to spend a lot of time getting the camper perfectly square in the bed, but not anymore! HappiJac's front crossmember bar has centering posts that line up the front perfect.

MORSNOW, thanks for the reply nice rig, nice campsite. I am glad I put the Camper Cradle on. After only 2 times of using it, I can tell it really solved our centering problem.
. I am going to look at the Happijack centering bar.

It’s amazing the effort people will go to avoid learning how to look in their mirrors!
You really don’t need all this junk. If you would just pull way out ahead of the camper, several truck-lengths, get square and back under it while sighting down the jack legs on both sides, making them both the same, you’d slide right under it square and straight every time with ease.
Using a roller to force it into position when it isn’t is gonna be stressful to the jack mounts. I wouldn’t use this thing.

Guy we used to camp with. Destroyed 2 sets of jacks doing the roller deal. As he would move the camper at times 3 or 4" sideways. I told him that after the first set. After he messed up the second set. I think he learned his lesson.
Roller is a good ideal, if your right to start with. But if you use them to move the camper over. Something has to give. Weak point is jacking mounting points. Or the jack legs there self.

Pete_k, thanks for the reply. As I mentioned in my post the tc only moves a smidge. I DO NOT USE THE ROOLERS to move the tc. Brenda has to in the center before I tell her to backup. I know that you can't move the jacks that much, Yes, something will break.
