I have a twin axle Lock N Level and use it to fit Al-Ko wheel locks to the caravan when parking it on my drive. One of the issues with this is that when I park up for the winter the Lock N Level will be permanently under the wheels throughout the winter months. Not ideal, and if possible would like to remove it and pack it away. I am considering buying a trolley jack that will enable me to just lift the caravan high enough to remove the Lock N Level. Has anyone else tried doing this?
I had to jack my 7. 4m long single axle caravan the other day to align the BPW wheel lock. The steadies were down, then I thought would jacking up the caravan on the near side put extra strain on the off side steadies. In the end I didn't take the risk and lifted the steadies. The caravan was parked on a very slight incline and with no brake on wanted to slowly cheap forward. Putting the brake on was necessary to keep it still will I jacked the van up. Then I put the steadies down to support, took off the break to rotate the wheel to the desired position. Even with all this faff, when lock in position and break on hard it still swivelled slightly. So what is the best way to do this next time?
Hi, I'm new to caravanning and have just bought a Bailey Unicorn Barcelona 2010 with twin axles. I plan get a motor mover fitted to drive all 4 wheels. However, the motor movers will block the jacking points. And I need to be able to jack up the carvan to fit both Al-Ko Secure locks, or if I get a puncture. I guess a trolley jack might work, Could I just jack up under one of the axles ? If I was to use a bottle jack where could I safely use it ? I imagine it would be unwise to put it under an axle. I'd prefer a bottle jack if I can, as it's a lot lighter and smaller than a trolley jack. I'd be grateful for any advice. Thanks Steve
