So a friend recommended a solution for mounting the scissor jacks. After removing the hitch, we extended the hitch bar on each side by 12", welding on the same steel tubing. We replaced the right angle mounting plates on the jacks, with flat steel that was welded to the extension pieces. 2 holes in each of the plates allowed them to be attached to the jacks.
The jack access for extending is about 6" in from each side of the motorhome. When wound up they sit above the skid bars so no chance of dragging. Work perfectly. I have attached a picture. Sorry, photo is turned and not sure how to right it.
