Hydraulic jack problem!!

HELP!!! 1 of my 4 hydraulic jacks is out of commission. Where the jack is welded to the frame snapped. It just needs to be re-welded to the frame. The jack itself doesn't appear to be damaged. I have it scheduled for repair but my question is if I use jacks manually, can I just use the 3 that are not damaged and just add support blocks under the broken one for my 2 night trip that is scheduled before the repair date?

Are you planning on parking in unlevel spots? Why not just take some wood blocks to drive onto if leveling is needed? Only using 3 jacks could be a risk of twisting the frame, why risk further damage? If you want to stop bounce, a small bottle jack, jack stands, or blocks could reduce bounce.
