stabilizing jack installation

I am putting scissor jacks on the front and rear of my 2018 Grey Wolf 26DJSE and have a question. Is there a specific distance from the end of the trailer that is best to install these or should I just get them as close to the end as possible? Thank you

I think your are going to want them near the ends of your trailer. They do well there to stop movement when you are walking around inside. If you have movement while someone is going from one end to the other and that bothers you, get something to resist movement like an x-chock or other solution. I have even heard of members adding more jacks beyond the jacks on the corners, like a pair near the the axles.
