I am fairly new to motor homes and have a 2005 Fleetwood Jamboree 31M. I’m wondering why there are no stabilizers/jacks on the front end as there are on the back. Can anyone provide a reason? Can I install some or use 2 scissor jacks when I park?

Thanks
Marc

I doubt it came that way from the factory. I permanently mounted scissor jacks to the frame of my RV and operate them with an cordless drill. Just put the jacks close to the front wheels so it doesn't overstress the frame. Like where you'd put them to change a tire.

It probably came with none and a previous owner added the rears. That's where most of the stabilization need is. These are stabilizers for jiggling, not leveling jacks.

Yes you can add front stabilizers, if you can find place to mount and not interfere too much with dips in the road, raised RR tracks, etc. And don't mind a bit of ugliness when viewed from the front.
