? re scissor jacks

Has anybody used scissor jacks with them being mounted to the frame. I orderd a pair for our 2940ds, but received the wrong ones. When the correct ones arrive Im afraid I wont have time to install before our trip. We will be staying in multiple locations each for 7 days at a time. any suggestions are appreciated

Scissor jacks

I am interested in the responses here. I was told by our RV dealewr that they are not to be installed on a Class C so I have been lugging jacks in my storage compartment and it is a pain

My 3170DS had them installed by the local dealer when I purchased it.

I installed the husky jacks (6500 lbs) on the rear of my new 2015 3011ds.
I thru bolted them to the frame and use my portable drill to lower and raise the jacks. Works great

Phelp...thanks. I am wondering why my dealer said no stabilizers should be put on class C.....I accepted it as fact but now it does not make any sense at all....why would a class C be any different than a travel trailer

Scooter, was this a sales guy or the head of the shop?
If 10 guys on this forum have done it successfully and
one guy says no, who are you going to believe?
