Talking Where are your scissor jacks?

I am thinking about getting some scissor jacks for stabilization of my Class C 28A. If you have some on your Class C (preferably 28A or similar) please post some photo's of where yours are located. Text descriptions work also. Thanks!

Under frame rails close to suspension in rear. Up front, somewhere close to cab and coach come together on frame rail.

You think if you get a chance you could photo and attach it so can see? If you don't mind.

O also own a 28A and want to install 4 Husky jacks for stabilizing. Have you solved it, FW5000DRIVER? Do you have pics?

I met a guy who fixed 4 electric scissor jacks in a cross pattern. i.e. Rear left parallel to the main axis and rear right perpendicular to main axis. The inverse pattern to the front.

Not yet. I assume that people don't or haven't done something like this.

I had scissor jacks installed on my 29 foot Monaco Montclair by Camping World. The rear jacks were bolted to the main frame rails immediately behind where the rear end of the leaf springs met the frame. The front jacks were installed all the way at the front of the rails, immediately behind the front trim. They seemed to work ok in those positions.

I have my rear jacks right behind rear suspension, the front are not permanently mounted. I side the front under the cab to the rear of the motor where I can catch the frame.

I assume you use them as stabilizers and not as leveling jacks?

Yes, just stabilize. Firms things up quite a bit. I crank up and down with a battery power drill, works good and fast.
