You mentioned you didn't have the electric stabs down all the way, that's good. I'm disappointed in these type of stabilizers as compared to the scissor jacks I had on my previous TT. I have recently had a problem with them working but I got it figured out.
I use: X chocks, a scissor jack in front of the front tire on each side, and a stacker jack under the step.
Others will suggest some form of the JT Strong Arms for the shimmy.
I plan on something similar on the next trip and will give a report after we get back.
