Leveling a Mobile Home

Try this:
Use at least six five ton jacks at a time. Have sufficient cribbing (4x4's and 2 x 4's and shims, or concrete pillars and shims) available so that when you DO get it to the right height, you can put in the cribbing on those six points, and not lose what ya got. Then release the jacks, reposition, and repeat. If you're using just the screw up jacks common to "manufactured homes", that's okay, too.
What you don't want to do is jack this end up, get it right, then jack the other end up, and find out that it kicks this end out of kilter, culminating in a day of running circles and consuming large quantities of beer.
I'd use at least four jack points, four jacks, and a plan.

One last thought ............ make one point of one jack the "good" point, and raise or lower all the others to that point.
