185RB stabilizer jacks

My '14 185RB came with 4 stabilizer jacks. All the 185RB's I see have 2, except for the Baja edition which comes with 4, but mine isn't a Baja. I did buy it in Idaho, land of the Baja's, but does anybody else have the 4 jacks? Not complaining, just weird.

I asked a few weeks ago if placing 2 stabilizer jacks on the front of my new featherlight SLX 16 would be a good choice to help in the front. It only came with the built in ones in the rear, but both my wife and I felt the front wobble a bit when we were at the front area (stove, table). No one replied, then I saw this post.

I'd say for sure that having 4 would be an advantage. You could always just not use the two front and see if you notice a difference with wobble when in the front area.

There should be no problem. That just makes your RV more stable. However depending on where they are install, you may loose ground clearance. I advice that if they hang to low you install Saveajack, so you can remove them when you are traveling.

The 185RB Baja has the axle flipped for higher clearance and comes also with off-road tires and 4 stabilizers. Be sure you have enough clearance on the front special at entrances; driveways etc. Also the Baja has black coroplast above the frame to stand up better in off-road conditions (you can check yours). Your lucky with the two extra (free) stabilizers.

Mine has two in the back. I use two pyramid type jacks for the front.
