Stabilizing a TT.........

Hi All,

Anyone have any tips on how to better stabilize my TT? We have 4 jacks (1 on each corner) and the x-tire wheel chocks, but still get sea sick when the kids roll over in their bunks.

I've attached a link below for "Wayne's Stabilizers", the video on you tube looks like they work really well.....does any one have some of these or know any one who does? If so, how do they work?

Wayne's RV Stabilizer

Thanks

Do you go back and re-tighten your stabilizers after a few hours? We found that that makes a huge difference.

I have started to re-tighten, thanks for the thought. How much weight do you put on your jacks? Do you see lift of the TT?

I bought 2 of these universal stabilizers from CW this weekend. I put one on each side so far they seem to help a lot with the bouncing when walk through the TT

@ Mike54..........THAT"S IT!!!!!! Those are the Wayne Stabilizers I was referring to in my original post. So you put them on the sides, what was your thought process for the sides rather then back and front?

I couldn't put it under the bumper because I have plastic fence post under the bumper for my sewer hose But I'm thinking it might work better with one under the bumper and one on the door side front it help the bounce going in and out of TT
