wiggle,wiggle

I have a new 295rst crusader with 4 point auto-level. When someone walks or even just turns over in bed the whole trailer wiggles. This lasts for a second or so even after movement stops. This is also with legs on solid ground.
Do you suppose I could be letting the leg extensions out too far? Any other ideas?
Dave

Are you chocked well?

We also experience this and will combat it with better chocks (I am buying BAL X-chocks) and will also add JT strongarms. I hope that takes care of this.

I too had that until I dropped the legs less...I set the fronts on scrap pieces of 6x6, rears on 4x6. I pull the pin & drop legs to about 2" off the blocks then let the auto level take over. also just installed JT Strongarms...QUITE a difference!

I can't say mine continues after the movement stops, but I've never paid attention. Our plan of attack has been:

1) triangulating stabilizers (products like JT's StrongArms, UltraFab Eliminators, SteadyFast system or your own DIY) on each corner from the stabilizers to the frame (we have the UltraFabs)

2) good between the wheel chocks (we went with RotoChocks)

3) Extra jacks under the frame near the axles - we haven't done this yet, but I'm starting with the Valterra Jack Stands with extremely low expectations and will likely move to scissor jacks.

With 1 and 2, we still have movement- more than we'd prefer. I'm hoping 3 gets us closer to the "rock solid" that many people claim. At the end of the day, wheels and a suspension are part of our foundation, so I expect some movement. I just don't need to know when my 9 year old rolls over 35' feet away. And vice versa- it'd be nice if my MIL doesn't need her seasickness wristbands when she sleeps back in the bunkhouse.
