We use Lynx Levelers under our tires on our 3050s They came with a nice zip case. I just kept them in the basement storage.

you will have to level by driving up on lynx levelers or boards first then stabilize from the frame to the ground. your standard hand crank stabilizer jack is not designed to level the only thing you could level with would be hydraulic bottle jacks and that would be a real pain.

always support from frame of truck chaises. looking at my 3170 if i did not have jacks i would mount two stabilizers at the rear of the frame.

just go to camping world dot com and search - they have lots of types. We (also in a class c) use scissor jacks for stabilizing. They are affixed to the rear frame and our particular model also has one in the front.

leveling RV

The one in the front is that a permanant unit from factory or is it a unit that is placed and if so where do you place it?

It's factory, and bclemens mentioned that it was only done for a few years and only to the 2860 (if I recall correctly)

And it's smack in the middle, right behind the license plate. It's bolted onto the frame, so I would assume you could do it aftermarket as well.
