scissor jacks

Waiting for my Rockwood 2703WS so in the meantime gathering items I will need. I ordered mine without the power stabilizers, decided on scissor jacks so my question is there are some campers that have added a couple scissor jacks to help with stabilization so wondering thoughts on adding additional to what comes with the camper and if so how many and because I don't have my trailer yet wondering who makes them for Forest River so I can get the same. Thanks!! Tom

Why not wait for your unit and then determine if you need additional ones?

Sorry but I have no idea of what brand FR uses. My unit didn't come with any to start with but the service department added them on for me.

My FW came with them but who ever made then was not proud enough to put their name or country of origin on them only place I have not looked is where they are bolted to the trailer.

As posted above I'd wait till the trailer is in and look to see what the mounting area will accommodate.

Manufacture probably painted over their signature! LOL...but with all the other crazy issues we've seen with our campers, I may not be wrong

I have the elect stabilizers and love them, also added the JB strong arms for the side movements, but the last to do was hydraulic bottle jacks (two) under each side next to the wheels. Took the hop right out.
