Lets see, left front, right front. That is two. The rear stabilizers do not lift anything, they just stabilize.
In the later Teton years, when they delivered four stabilizing jacks, they clearly stated that those jacks where not for supporting the weight of the trailer, only stabilizing.
You lift a frame in one corner and you are torqueing the frame. HWH has a great video presentation of the impact of single cornet lifting.
Leveling system drop the jacks to the ground. From there, they all level the RV by extending either the side jacks (2 or 3) or the front jacks (2) or the rear jacks (2). By applying lift on the sides or the ends, the frame is not stressed as when just one corner is raised. That is the difference between a leveling system and independent front jacks.
Leveling system cost money but they protect your frame and make site setup a whole lot easier.
