Post 2015 Thor Freedom Elite 28h stabilizing

Where should stabilizing jacks be mounted for side to side movement on the Thor Freedom Elite 28h? What is the roof material & should it be cleaned once a year?

I'm not sure about your stabilizers, or the roof material...
But the more often that you can get up on top, and take a GGOD look at the condition of your roof: the happier you will be!
(And while you're up there: give it a good cleaning too! )

If you are thinking about adding scissor jacks. I would have them mounted to the frame rails. Our hydraulic jacks are mounted just behind the front tires and then maybe 2' behind the rear duals. Here is a video on identifying roof material:

The roof material is most likely TPO. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour...TMC8EynQGUURiE

How often you clean the roof depends on where you take your RV and where you store it. Once a year would be the minimum. If you park under trees much, more often would be necessary. Remember, clean the top first and work your way down.

Smile Stabilizing jacks

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions. Special thanks for the video. I have tried stackable jacks on the frame but they did not seem to do much plus I have to crawl under the Motorhome to place them. The motorhome will drag backing in & pulling out of my drive way so not sure about permanent mounting.

What did you work out to reduce the movement of the motorhome when stationary? My 2015 28H has a TPO roof and I use Dicor Roof-Gard UV Protectant. I apply three times per year. Buy the gallon refill, it is cheaper and I go through it liberally. What other improvements/modifications have you did to your 28H?
