Stabilizing Sunseeker 2850

Looking for a recommendation on how to best stabilize a 2018 Sunseeker 2850 once its parked and leveled. We don't have an automatic leveling system and instead use interlocking leveling blocks.

The dealer said not to use stabilizing jacks attached to the frame due to low clearances.

Please let me know what has worked best for you.

I used at one time the stabilizing Jack's used on tts. They worked, but having to almost get under to place was a pitb. Had auto levelers installed. When it was dry out, not bad. Bad weather, forgetaboutit!

2250 class c. Started with stabil lite stabilizers, used for about a year. Took them off for bigfoot levelers. Have to take off the stabil lite wiring so I can sell or pass on.

The only way to stabilize the unit is to put a solid link between the frame and the ground.
Leveling jacks do that and more. Crank down (manual or electric) stabilizers will do the trick for the most part.
Jack stands will work (even the light aluminum camcos that you can get at W-Mart). Blocks and shims will work too. So will bottle and scissor jacks. Those will require crawling underneath. Consider where you place the jacks if you put any real weight on them.

Almost a week from the original post and the OP has not responded but I would highly suggest adding auto levelers. What you invest now you will most likely get most of it back when you sell or trade, not to mention if the purchaser was looking at 2 comparable units he/she would most likely go with the one with levelers.

Big Foot usually has the Platinum on sale. Although not a 4 point automatic leveler it will do front and back and you can manually finish leveling. No crawling under the rig except to put pads under the jacks if you so desire.
