This work took 4 days. The first day the truck was connected to the trailer, then he used blocks and jacks to raise trailer and I was free to use truck to explore the country side. That made the difference during my stay not feeling trapped.
Needless to say, the jacks work now. Its not a cheep fix but part of this is custom and you pay for that, the piece of mind knowing they are holding pressure make it worth the cost.
If you are looking for someone to work on your rig, stay in your rig, feel safe on there property while its happing you'd be hard pressed.
Glad that you had a great experience with Les. He is a nice guy and knows his stuff. And I know my front landing gear is much better built then it came with from the factory.
