I installed mine as you have described. Towards the front. 30". Away from center of stabilizer. It will up almost all the way. Maybe 1/2 shy. I may put my own bracket in to drop the pad a touch. Otherwise fit perfectly. I cannot believe how much of a difference. For me as per instruction. I levelled trailer. Dropped the front 1". Put rears down and locked in place. Picked up front 1". Locked in place. Bumped up. Is that how you have been doing yours. Any other suggestions.
