Background

The pink trailer is sloped - a result of the foundation supports sinking and crumbling away. The fix is to jack up the trailer, and insert new piers underneath.

We used 2x6s, plywood, and concrete blocks to elevate the trailer. We also used aluminum jack stands. Likely not earthquake or flood proof. Need to use sand bags

Process

  1. Gather materials
    1. Concrete
    • Elevated post bases
    • gravel for around
  2. Jack up trailer
    • Put on temporary posts
  3. Cast foundation pads and insert post base with wood.
  4. final leveling of trailer.
  5. New subfloor. Perhaps easier to access certain parts of trailer if we can take out subfloor.
