Socket for stabilizer jacks

What size socket will I need for a cordless drill to raise/lower the stabilizers on a 2006 Safari?

Thanks guys. We pick up our new 30' Bunk Saturday and we are going to spend our "shake down" crews in the mountains over the Memorial Day week end on the way home from the dealer. I wanted to charge my cordless drill and make sure I had the right size socket before we left home.

Things like the cordless drill to let the jacks down makes setup and teardown a lot easier !!!!!!!

I did the same thing which is why I knew the size. I use a 24 volt drill which is pretty powerful. Be sure and set your torque low enough so you don't "jack" the trailer.

It is camping...... just cooler

Besides it's a darn good excuse to go buy a new 24V tool or some other toy to go with the Tin Can Toy

It's your standard size spark plug socket (3/4" as already stated), often an extended socket on sets sold here. I've had a number of people asking what I was doing as I handily let the stabilizers up or down. You can see the lightbulb turn on when you tell them.

I purchased one from an RV store that had the socket welded to a shaft ready for your drill.

I will take a spark plug socket with me when we pick up the trailer Saturday, but we are planning a stop that afternoon at camping world so I will look for the one piece unit hookedonclassic described. I have an 18 volt/amp? (I'm at work so I'll have to double check tonight when I charge it) that I plan to keep in the Airstream. I'd seen this system mentioned on the forums and thought it way better than hand cranking.

Any hardware store sells a drill adapter to any of the 1/4, 3/8, or 1/2 inch drives for sockets. It's compact and resides full time in my spark plug socket. I shouldn't mention it, but I got mine at Home Despot. (thanks Don...)
