Stabilizer Jack Tool

Does anyone know where I could purchase a stabilizer jack tool made for a drill? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
Randy

Most RV dealers and supply places should carry them.
If you still can't find one, you can check the websites of some Airstream dealers. I know of at least one that carries them.

I bought mine at Sears. It's a drill bit with a 3/8 drive socket adapter. Then you buy a 3/8 drive 9/16 socket and you are ready to go, if you have the drill.

I bought a half inch drill with the Ion batteries and charger, all in a cute little black bag from Sears, too. It fits nicely in the couch arm rest cubby holes, along with my Coleman lantern.

I don't know how long the charge lasts. I used one battery all summer on my stab. jacks, and haven't needed to charge it yet.

If you do get the Ion batteries, take them inside during the sub freezing weather. They do not like to be cold.

Depending on the Airstream, you would need either a 3/4" hex or T slot drill adapter, which fits directly into the chuck of the drill. No other adapters required.

Oops, my bad, it is a 3/4". Sorry about that.

Something to consider when using a drill. If you have an extreme distance to run a jack down, be careful not to run the threaded shaft beyond the threads. I misjudged it once, and it took a lot of effort to get it freed. I'm back to just using the speed handle. Less chance of a mistake, and one less thing to pack along.

Keep a couple of blocks of wood handy just in case it's a long stretch for the stabilizer.

Do you have a hex head stabilizer or a t-type stabilizer that uses a slotted tool? If a hex head, the above recommendations will work, if the slotted type, then something like this...Socket Jenie For BAL Light Trailer Stabilizing Jacks
