Those stack jacks just take forever to set up and I usually have to lay on my back to get them in position, and then start screwing (not the fun kind).
I use 4, 2 in front and 2 behind
To do it 'right' (imo), if you are going to the corners now, then you 'need' 6 scissor jacks . one set in front of the axles and a set about a foot or so back from each corner (not on the bumper, but on the frame). Set up like this, you can release any pressure off of the tongue jack. And if you have no jack if you had a flat, to put under the axle plate/bolt (not on the axle as it will bend) You can lift the axles/tires off the ground.
It is your unit. What ever you do, do it correctly in mounting to the frame so there is no question about the safety of it.

Safety first and always.

I have 2 older jacks that I keep in the front of the 5er for times when we will be sitting still more than a couple nights. I just use the drill to run them up and down as needed.
I will say this: on our current 5er with hydraulic front landing gear and electric rear stab jacks I use them a lot less. On our last campers I always had the drill out anyway so it was no big deal to put these out. Now, I only need the drill if I'm putting these out and I've found its less hassle when setting up to just not do it.
