that is what I will want is stability, I never lifted my motor home's wheels off
the ground.

Yes to the front, not sure how to install them, looking for someone who has
done this already. I don't need to be the leader of the pack.

We added the scissor jacks. 2 in front, 2 in back.

I'm not sure the model of the jacks as the MH is in storage. It looks like the picture posted by Oldcoot. I think they are simply bolted to the frame. As I mentioned the best advantage is having the cordless drill with a long extension to do all the hard work. I found jacking by hand crank took a few minutes and lots of sweat when it was +30 c, however with the drill this was a pleasure.

My 2860DS came with rear scissor jacks, it helps stabilize the unit due to the long overhang behind the rear tires. I use them to some degree to level the unit, but that's only an aside. I had a 2300 previous, scissor jacks not really needed.

KQ2N what year is your 2860? Mine is a 2010 it has a front stabilizer which I was unaware of until I learned about it from other threads here. Its ahead of the wheels and accessed from drivers side

Sportracker, my 2860 is a 2013 model. It's too nasty outside now to go check, but I've been under the unit to change the engine oil and look around, I don't remember seeing any front stabilizers, but sometimes I'm not that observant. I'll check it out as I have to do an oil change before our March trek south.

thanks guys for your input, I have been looking at the 5000 lb Husky scissor
jacks from the net, they have a flat lifting pad. I was on the net
where a guy screwed 2 2x6 on the bottom of the jack for a better
landing pad. Like I have said, I don't want to lead the pack.

Per request, here's the jacks we had installed (over my capabilities).

OC you amaze me! I love how you mounted them jacks! I was trying to figure out how to mount mine and I think you have settled it for me!

Hopefully you dont start charging for copying you!
