2017 Leprechaun 260DS questions

My apologies if some of these items have been covered in other threads. I searched but did not find them.

I purchased this unit used with limited documentation so some of these may be stupid questions.

First, I have read some info on the Roadmaster heavy duty front and rear stabilizers for the F450 chassis and am interesting is doing this upgrade. Anyone with experience with these bars please share your thoughts.

Second, my unit is equipped with hydraulic jacks. Can these be used to lift the coach of its wheels for short periods such as to replace a tire or maintenance work or will this cause damage?

Finally, has anyone installed a full coach water filter? My old flagstaff 23fbds had one directly inline with the outside water connector, it would be nice to have one on the Leprechaun.

I have the Roadmaster Reflex steering stabilizer. That along with a correct front end alignment has made the drive much easier. Hardly notice when a truck passes me, dip in the road don't jerk the wheel out of my hand and cross winds are manageable.

Although the Big Foot levelers will lift the front wheels off the ground I would not use them for the purpose of changing a tire. Leave it up to the professionals. Besides, getting the spare down if you have one can be a bear.

As for a whole coach water filter, if you don't have one just get the inline that screws onto the water hose. There are many posts on here of issues with the onboard one.
