Locating placement of roller points.

indicate that homes should be raised and moved using 4 or 5 jacking
points. We make as a general recommendation that homes longer than
48 feet be raised and moved with a 4 or a 5 point system.
Generally the rear points of
the jacking system are positioned to the rear of the axles, either in
between the axles or right behind the last axle.
If the system is a 4P-LPS, the
from two points are generally positioned 8 to 10 feet back from the front
of the home.
If the system is a 5P-LPS, two
of the four rear points are positioned directly in front of the axles and
the other two points directly in back of the axles.
If the system is a 3P-LPS or a
5P-LPS, the front point is positioned under the hitch stinger.

placement and operation.
- Place rolling channel end bolts in each end
of each channel. Caution: Do not over tighten, as this will
cause the channel to bow.
- Unless the rolling channel is being placed
on a hard, flat, level surface (such as concrete or asphalt) a 2 by 10 or
other support should be used to support the length of the rolling channel.
The support should be sufficient enough as to not allow the rolling channel
to bend in the middle or settle at the ends.
- The rolling channel should be set up as
level as possible.
- Rolling channels should be set, as close as
possible, at a 90 degree angle from the frame of the home and in line with
one another. (This is very important so that when you are rolling the home,
the rollers do not bind)
- Bottom roller
and roller guide placement and operation.
- The bottom roller is placed in one end of
the rolling channel directly under the frame of the home to achieve maximum
sideways movement when home is moved.
- The roller guide is then placed on top of
- The roller guide should be placed on the
roller so that when the jack is slid into place, the handle of the jack
faces toward the outside of the home.
- Care should be taken to make sure the
roller is properly placed within the metal retaining tabs of the guide. (Be
careful not to pinch fingers while putting roller and roller guide
- Blocking in now place on top of the free
rolling dolly guide, to block up to the frame of the home. If you are
going to use a jack without the multi-directional top rollers, you must use
our jack brackets, or some other way to attach the jack to the guide.
If you do this, we recommend to use a jack stem frame protector against the
frame. To keep side pressure off of the jacks, the rolling channels
must be aligned up with one another, or you may use our multi-directional
- Lifting and rolling of home.
- While a home is up on a roller system,
tires and axles should be left on until the last possible moment (until
final leveling of home) at which time safety cribbing should be used when
removing tires and axles. If tires must be removed to roll the home
sideways, safety cribbing should be used while working underneath the home.
- Using come-a-longs, the home is then rolled
sideways. If conditions permit, the home can be pushed over by hand,
then cinched together with a come-a-long.
- A wedge can the be placed in the tray to
the outside of the roller to prevent further sideways movement.
- For lengthwise movement, all points of the
system will need to be rotated. This is done by lifting the weight off
the rolling system and rotating the points to allow for lengthwise
- Using a come-a-long, the home is then moved
lengthwise for proper alignment. If conditions permit, this can be
done by hand.
- Final leveling is now done.
