Quick question does everyone's stabilizers work loose? Any suggestions appreciated.

I am not sure what you mean by work loose? I know after setting up I have had mine sink into the ground a bit so they need to be retightened after the first night.

Apparently yours did, so "no" would be the incorrect answer.
You could use nyloc nuts or thread lock on the mounting bolts.

I used to have some scissor-type stabilizers and they would work loose from the movement in the trailer. When I would deploy them, I would sometimes get them to just where I wanted them and take the tool off and watch the worm screw start turning backwards. I stripped them of all oil and grease and that solved the problem.
