Stabalizing jacks for Cruise Lite 26RKS

I have a just purchased my first RV, a non-backpack edition 26RKS and the dealer gave me some generic aluminum pyramid style jacks. I recently purchased some much nicer scissor stabilizer jacks. I'm looking to see if anyone has any good ideas for mounting them. There is a spot to mount one near the rear door and step on the right side but on the left side the galley grey tank and plumbing is in the way. The only real place I can see it to put it under the rear bumper when we go to the camp site.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi BigD271,
I have a 30ft salem with 2 slide outs and i noticed on mine a rocking when parked... it has the four stabilizers in each corner but i went and bought 2 more... i put one almost middle of the frame on the entry side about a foot from the door and the other on the frame in the middle of the dining/couch slide out... that took all the roll out of it nicely. as far as mounting, well it didn't mount them to the frame but checked them once a week for the first 3 weeks due to ground settling... i now check them once a month and there good to go.... you might not need to mount them.... hope this helps and happy camping

I had the 26RKS backpack edition. The two rear scissor jacks were mounted on the bumper and the two front scissor jacks mounted on the frame near the tongue. It was a very stable platform and we didnt notice much movement when people entered or left the camper
