Stabilizing Wildcat Maxx T28RKX

Took delivery of our new TT and got it all leveled up with the electric stabilizers down and secure. DW has medical issues that make her very sensitive to movement, so even with the stabilizers down the trailer moved around too much.

I went to Home Depot and picked up four of the concrete blocks with adjustable threaded supports. I placed one in each corner, finger tight and then 1/2 turn with a wrench. The front supports contact the frame at the back of the hitch beams, the rear supports I placed to contact the frame just behind the stabilizers.

Good idea? Bad idea? Should I place a thick piece of rubber or other type of non-conductive insulation between the frame and the galvanized piece from the block? I'm not sure why the picture is rotated, it's right side up in my documents....

Any suggestions and comments are welcome!

Bounce is from the tires, one on each side in front of the front axle and one on each side behind the rear axle.



Camco Stack Jacks - Walmart.com

Do not try to lift the trailer just snug it good.

Thanks for the quick response! Would these be in addition to, or in place of? My concern on the right side frame rail (looking from the back) is the LP line that runs down the outside bottom center of the frame.

Which ever you want to use them, if you just want to use what you have now can you get one between the axles under the frame rail.

I'm not sure if there is room for a like setup between the axles, but due to the weight of the concrete block I wouldn't be able to get one back there anyway. Looks like a couple of the Camco jacks might be in order for between the axles.

Thanks for the feedback!

YAY!

It passed the DW test with just the four corners supported, but just to be save the Camco jacks are on order.

First overnight stay this weekend, looking forward to it!
