New Feet

So I ended up dropping $20 on these anti-vibration pads for my stabilizer jacks, after a full summer of use I'm amazed on how well they have held up, gravel, rocks, pavement and concrete they save on putting a block under the jack to prevent scratching up the metal on the jack feet... Time saver and 4 less blocks cluttering up my storage space!

Drilled holes in the pads to align to the holes already in the stabilizer feet, two stainless steel bolts, lock, and fender washers each and had them on within minutes.

Don't they defeat the purpose of stabilizers? If they can compress to absorb vibration, won't that happen as you move around in the trailer? I've always thought the firmer the footing the better.

AS Is A Faraday Cage During Electrical Storm

I am not concerned with scratching the feet of the stabilizers, but will use plastic pads under them and the tongue jack if there is a risk of lightning during a storm. This is to isolate the trailer (Faraday Cage effect.) IMO fastening the isolation pads with metal bolts would defeat this electrical isolation. Perhaps nylon bolts and nuts would be a better option?

"Lightning will travel around the outside surface of a metal-framed vehicle, essentially protecting the passengers in the vehicle from the electrical shock. This is called the Faraday Cage effect. As long as the passenger does not make contact with the outer metal shell i.e. by touching internal parts such as the steering wheel, radio knob or door handle, he/she will be safe."

They are super rigid and haven't noticed any difference between this and just having the plastic "lego" blocks under them.

Personally, Iíd rather be inside a well-grounded metal trailer. Lightning needs a path to ground, and I prefer that path have no chance to include ME....

May weld a stabilizing jack solid with a direct hit, but at least Iíll know it went to ground....
