Vibe frame question

I have a 2016 Vibe 308bhs. Are there any wires or anything that runs inside the rectangular tube frame? I'll be installing manual scissor jacks soon and don't want to damage anything that could possibly be inside the frame.

The lippert electric jacks that came on the camper were convenient, but were terrible at stabilizing the camper. I replaced them with manual scissor jacks which stabilize it much better. I also added Bal lock arms which added even more stability.

Your right, the stabilization is bad. Where did you place your scissor jacks and all, I will have to do the same once my 2017 warranty runs out

I installed scissor jacks where the electric ones were. Bal lock arms on the rear from jack foot to rear frame. Ratcheting cargo bars from front jack foot diagonally to opposite side frame. Homemade x chocks between wheels. Very stable now.

Could you possibly post the pics here as well? I'm looking to make a serious change to my setup too.

This is the sound bar under the TV and the 3 shelf hanger in the closets. Sorry if the pic is sideways
