Stabilizer jacks location

I just got a good deal on a couple of stabilizer jacks (same brand as installed) at a garage sale. I already have the four jacks installed at each corner. Trailer seems reasonably stable but a little more would probably help.

The question for y'all is where is the best location to install the jacks? Should they be as close to centered between the existing jacks or closer to the forward axle?

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

As close to the center of the axles as possible.
