I prefer to change my own fluids but was wondering what is the safest way to get the coach up off the ground?

The safest way is with a lift. Short of that you can lift the motorhme using your jacks and then use jack stands under the spring shackles under the axles. Try not to lift the rear tires off the ground and use wheel chocks and set your emergency brake.

If you try hard enough, you don't even need to lift the motorhome you should have enough clearnace with the unit sitting level on the ground.
