Smithville Lake, outside of Kansas City, MO. We love it here and only 13 miles from our front door. https://www.claycountymo.gov/Parks/S...e_Lake/Camping

Donanddona... what are bottle jacks? You put them by the front tires to reduce the bounce? Do you have a 5th wheel? Does it help by putting the jacks there?

Small hydraulic jacks (10-ton). I put them where you would feel comfortable at jacking the trailer up at (on the frame). I wood blocks to get them close and then lift the rear stabilizers about an inch and a half. Screw the bottle jack to meet the framing. Then lower the rear stabilizers an inch. Then tighten the JB-Strong arms. It does help. Others have their own way to reduce the bounce (Oldcoot) and I do re-level every week if at an extended stay. I have a Flagstaff 8528 BHSS and learning things always. Did you know you should lube your front landing gear? Most will have a grease zerk for the screw staff but on the bevel gears you'll need to remove the top cap and shove some red grease in there.

We have been newbies since 1964! We have gone from tents through motorhomes back to a 20' trailer with all the amenities. We ALWAYS and still do carry way too much stuff. At one point working in the state parks, we decided if we needed so much and a huge coach, then we might as well stay home!
