Front jack placement on 2013 184BH

I just purchased a new 2013 184BH, and I would like to install a pair of scissor jacks on the front. Does anyone know the safest place to bolt them on? If anyone has some pics of an install that would help a lot.

Thanks!

I used a pair of these http://www.amazon.com/BAL-23026-Ligh...rv+stabilizers They are the same ones that are in the back. Instead of going side to side, I made them go front to back. There is plenty of room in the front if you mount them this way. I also bought sand pads for them. http://www.amazon.com/Camco-57883-St...zers+sand+pads

I took the extra jack socket and cut it off and stuck it in a drill that I keep in the camper. I use the drill for the BAL Leveler and the stabilizers. Works like a charm.

Hope that helps. Sorry I couldnt find a better pic. It took a drill, drill bits, and about 20 minutes to install them.

Thanks for the info! Did you mount them to the boxed frame or the c shaped frame on the front?

I believe it was on the boxed frame... It's been about a year ago. I found the sturdiest parts of the frame I could find and the fit nicely.
