Need stabilizing jack mount guidance

My 25RR didn't come with any stabilizer jacks. I made the unfortunate assumption that they all did from searching online. Anyway, I ordered some and they came in yesterday (jacks linked below from Amazon). How do I mount these things? I ask because the only place I can mount them is to the main frame beam and the mounting bolts look pretty big and my trailer frame looks pretty small (narrow beams). Can somebody take some pictures for me or provide some insight? I'm worried that I'll substantially weaken the frame by bolting this on.

Jacks: BAL 24028 Lopro 24" Scissor Jack with Handle: Automotive

Don't everbody rush in at once.

I found a way to do what I need without drilling anyway and it doesn't involve any potential weakening of the frame. While underneath the camper today trying to position it in a place where I could mark my holes to drill I noticed the outside holes almost perfectly straddle the outter edge of the "I" beam. Ahhhh, problem solved. I'll be picking up some bolts, nuts, lock washers, and hardened oversized washers tomorrow. This should hold it on fine and allow me to move the jacks up and down the frame when I want (with a little bit of effort and time).

I had looked at videos after my wife went to sleep and some pics trying to figure out how to pull this off. 2 minutes after crawling underneath and all my problems solved. "Think McFly, think....!"

Just gotta remember to think out of the box.

Sorry! I was going to take some pics for you. I don't have the same unit, but the frame should be comparable.
