Where to put stabilizer jacks?

Greetings, my 2004 sunseeker 3100 SS came with 4 stabiliser jacks (sitting in the rear compartment). Is there a diagram showing where these jacks should be positoned once I am set up?

Thanks

I know I am replying to my owh thread, but now I realise what a dumb question it was.

I looked under the MH and its pretty obvious where the chassis is, so there are a number of points that can be used.

Although I did notice that my black water tank had a dent in it, so I am wondering if the previous owner used it as a jack point!

It's not a bad questions. Some frames are two man frames going to the back with some secondary support beams. Unsure if your MH has this setup.

As far as the dent in black water tank, that could be for bottoming out? I doubt jacking up just cause the guy would have for sure not using his head for one and also with a MH it would of caused serious damage.

Yep my MH has the 2 frames running back.
I hadn't thought about bottoming out on something, I guess it's possible.
Thanks

Can I ask what kind of jack you have!? I am thinking about getting a set and even considered installing them on the underside to be a little more convenient at the site at night!?

I did have a set of those tripod jacks but they were too flimzy, so I just got a set of scissor style jacks that were on offer at Camping World. Much better!

Forgot to mention the name, they are called Ultra Scissor Jacks, they come in pairs so I got 2 pairs. Bolted them on to the MH last weekend. So much easier than those tripod things
