Manual Leveling Jacks for Class C Ford E450

I have a 14k lb Class C and looking to add manual LEVELING jacks (not stabilizers) and need some opinions and suggestions. Ford E450 chassis always has a slight twist on leveling ramps and the door won't close easily.

I hesitate spending $3000-5000 for electric or hydraulic

My first thought is you might just have an issue with the door, that is likely not going to be resolved if you go to a different method of leveling. If it's installed properly, I can't see how using leveling ramps could twist it so much that it would not close.

I have the same rig and I bought 2 sets (4 jacks) from amazon. They are 7500lb capacity each and work really well at helping fine tune the level after using blocks under the wheels. They are more than adequate for that purpose. They are scissor jacks and I use a cordless drill to raise and lower them.

If using any such jack(s), be sure to utilize the original Ford chassis frame, not the RV chassis frame extension located behind the Ford frame.
