Wouldn't the slide locks that came with the trailer(that we never use for that purpose) work in the instance that frankm has in his picture?

If they are long enough, they should. I never got any with my camper though.

Do you mean--don't use them to stabilize or you didn't get any with your rig? I haven't taken mine out of the closet to even see if they would work.

I use x-chocks and it makes a big difference. I've not tried the scissor jacks by the wheels yet, but I've heard from several folks that they make a differences too.

I have the electric stabilizers on each corner, use xchocks and a stacker jack on each side under the frame just ahead of the front tires. Still a little bounce but it's a trailer!

This weekend's trip was the first after installing the Happijack stabilizers. Big difference! I also use the BAL wheel chock.
