Default Leveling/Stabilizer jacks for 19KD

I was told by a friend that the stabilizer jacks are used to stabilize the RV, not to be used for leveling. Basically he said to not put too much of the trailer weight on the jacks.
However, I found on the 'net that as long as the FRAME of the trailer can support the jacks/weight...it is fine to use the jacks as levelers.
Will the frame of the 19KD handle the weight? Can't find the answer anywhere.

Thanks

I have always heard the same as your friend says, never use the stabilizer jacks to lift an RV. I agree and think this would cause twisting and excessive stress of the frame. If there is nothing in the owners manual about this, try contacting the frame manufacture.
