How to Protect Trailer Scissor Jacks

This is the SAVEAJACK accessory that protects your RV's trailer scissor jacks from getting damaged

Carmen Curry, who submitted this tip on how to protect trailer scissor jacks to us is the co-inventor of the
Save-A-Jack

We invented the SAVEAJACK Scissor Jack Quick Release System because we learned the hard way how to protect trailer scissor jacks. My husband and I have been RV camping with our children for 23 years. At that time, we had 3 Toy Haulers. Well, that's what we call it. An RV but more like a trailer with a ramp, so we can take our off-road toys with us. We like to go deep into the desert. And we all know the roads are not always level. Even driveways can cause some jack damage. And that’s what we did; we damaged one Telescopic stabilizing jack and then 3 scissor jacks on four different trips.

We realized we needed to do something. Our first stabilizers, telescopic stabilizing jack was almost $150, so we went to scissor jacks, but then we damaged three jacks on the next three trips.

As I said, we really like going off-road. We knew RVs need stabilizers, but we knew we couldn't keep damaging them. And that's how it was born, SAVEAJACK. A quick-release kit for your stabilizer scissor jacks. Now we just take them off when we are driving and slide them back on at camp. No more damaged scissor jacks, and we get almost 5 inches more ground clearance. SAVEAJACK is my saving tip. : )

Editor's Note: The short video below should also give you an innovative idea of how the SAVEAJACK works.

Save-A-Jack Features

SAVEAJACK is the original trailer stabilizer jack quick release system. It is designed to provide a simple way to remove your stabilizer jacks and add much needed ground clearance.

Most stabilizer jacks hang four to five inches below your vehicle's frame. They are very susceptible to damage when driving off road or down steep driveways. Saveajack is a steel bracket that mounts directly to the frame of your recreational vehicle and your stabilizer jacks.

Once installed you can easily remove jacks by sliding them out of the bracket. Saveajack provides peace of mind knowing your stabilizer jacks are stowed away safely for your trip.

  • Easily remove your scissor jacks avoiding damage
  • Installs easily in minutes
  • All mounting hardware included
  • Powder coated to resist rust
  • Prevents damage to your scissor jacks and vehicle

Here is what RVers say about Save-A-Jack

"I have bent more than a couple sets of the rear scissor jacks on my RV in WV so I was hoping this would take care of that along with the fact that the newest set didn't really line up with the mounting plate holes I already had. This will take care of both problems. The self-tapping screws went through the bumper frame attachment area fairly quickly just using a hand battery screwdriver/drill. The plates mounted well on both the jacks and frame. Thanks"

"These brackets make it very easy if you want to travel without the stabilizer jacks hanging underneath the trailer. These are very sturdy. The bracket allows stabilizers to slide on or off without much fuss. This is a very well-made product that does exactly what it is supposed to do."

Now you know how to protect trailer scissor jacks on your RV which will save you money to replace them.

Me too!

I have a severely sloped driveway and backing in my 28’ Travel Trailer always caused at least one jacked-up jack. I was going to attempt to design something just like Save-A-Jack. Thank goodness the work was done for me and at a cost less than I could have got it welded up for in the neighborhood. This product works great. It is a game changer for anyone that has uneven roads or improved trails to travel. Thanks for the great product.
