X2 what Weezer and the others say - X-chocks are the best investment you will ever make. The step support Weezer mentions is a good investment as well; we have one and it really works.

Finally to really "lock 'er down" take a look at JT Strongarms or the less expensive but equally capable ones from BAL.

Just installed steadyfast stabilizers last weekend. Didnt test them too much in the driveway but seemed to make a huge difference. We camp this weekend so will provide full report back.

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.
