I have had 3 point and 4 point jack systems, both have worked well. Stability is a little better with 4 point. All jack systems should not be extended far enough to lift the tires off the ground. If the tires are off the ground, particularly the rear since the emergency brake/parking brake only works on the rear, there is risk that the coach will roll and bend a jack. Very expensive to replace.

Both are good, that being said there is one problem with the 3 point system. When parking on gravel you must use boards or pads under the center jack. In most cases the outer ruts have been well packed where the center is soft.
It is always a good idea to put pads under all jack pads when parking on gravel or asphalt.
