The Importance of Stabilizing and Leveling
Having a trailer or an RV is one thing, but stabilizing them is an important part of being a trailer/RV owner. Stabilizers lift and level vehicles as well as prevent rocking and movement while inside.
One thing is that you never know what to expect when you arrive at your destination. You should always be prepared for the worst surface to park your trailer or RV. Even on relatively level surfaces you’ll need to stabilize your RV.
When you go camping you don’t want to feel any movement or swaying while you and your family are trying to go about your day inside the RV. Not only is this an uncomfortable way to live and feels unsettling, it can be dangerous. Going inside an RV that isn’t stabilized is not recommended. If you’re cooking when someone walks into the RV or moves inside it, it could cause the RV to move or sway which would pose danger to you while cooking. Or maybe you are grabbing something out of a cupboard or overhead storage. If there’s sudden movement objects could fall on you.
If you’re RV isn’t stabilized and leveled it can also lead to things not working properly and causing damage. The refrigerator inside your RV needs to be properly leveled in order to work. If you’re refrigerator is running while unleveled, the fluid can’t move properly and won’t be able to properly keep things cold. This can also be very damaging to the unit as all the fluid will be pushed to one side. This causes the pump to be dry or flooded depending on what side the fluid is pushed to. Another thing that happens if you’re RV is unleveled is it puts stress on the plumbing, door jams, cupboards, etc.,which can also cause your doors to not open and close properly.
Last but definitely not least, leaving your trailer or RV not stabilized is dangerous. Vehicles of any kind can be tipped over on unlevel surfaces. You need to make sure to not just level, but stabilize your vehicle. After you have leveled, its important to stabilize to make sure that your trailer is solid in place and isn’t at risk to tip over.
