To get back to this, what would you do in a situation that doesn't allow for the jacks to fully extend? This just doesn't seem right how much side to side movement there is.

As TURBS mentioned, the fix is to add triangulation stabilizers. He linked to the JT StrongArms whereas I'm a fan of the SteadyFast system (less bars, less moving parts, and way easier on the hands for tightening).

Forest River is actually sending me 2 new switches and 2 6 amp mini breakers. They said on the 2015's and older, the motors basically cannot push down hard enough before the factory installed mini breakers pop to actually keep it from swaying. They claim this is the "fix" plus they are also sending me a touch screen remote to control my camper for the "hassle"
