Rear jacks on 2015 22fb sport

Has anyone installed rear jacks on there 22fb sport? I only ask because we seem to shake a lot in the rear and looking at other campers they have jacks in all the corners

Our 2011 22fb was delivered with rear jacks. Yours should have been also.

The stabilizers should settle the trailer. No jacks are needed. Jim

That's what I'm talking about it shakes in the bathroom a lot more than the front. Thinking about adding stabilizers in the rear due to that

Airstream says that your trailer has rear stabilizers, I have them on my 2014 sport, they work fine. Maybe airstream forgot to install them, that, wouldn't surprise me.

Might have to get down on your knees to see them.. And if you can't find them you are already on your knees to pray that nothing else was left off. Jim

Thanks for all the help. We really appreciate it. Come to find out they are suppose to have them but we're not on it. My local dealer is taking care of it though.

Our 22ft FB Sport is equipped with stabilizers front and back. If yours are missing I would contact the dealer, maybe there was damage incurred during their delivery process.

I was thinking about painting the fitting on the jack a bright fluorescent color, they are hard to see in the dark, or maybe tape a flashlight to the jack handle.

I use an inexpensive Black and Decker cordless drill with built-in LED light to crank the stabilizer jacks up/down. Much easier than manual jack handle and great when its dark.

Using a lighted cordless drill is the only way to go

My 22' Sport has stabilizers with a "slot" type drive... not a "nut" or "socket" type. Am I alone in this? or is the Silver Trailer crowd in SLC still just full of POOP when they tell me the one they shipped is the one I should have and that my AS must be different than everyone elses?

I purchased some white reflective tape. Cut 1/4" squares of the white tape and placed them on the end of the stabilizer rod. Makes it easy to see where the "T" slot goes at night with minimal light. I also cut small strips and placed them around the end of the tongue which has made it easier to see in the back up camera as I back up to hitch my 2015 22FB in dark during these winter months.
