And a new support group has been born “RV Obsession with Stabilization Anonymous” (RVOSA).

Some people just don't get they bought an RV and it will not be just like their stick house. I'd loose those jacks under the slides in a heartbeat ... any major settling or say a tire looses pressure ... trouble follows.

Going to get me a 'Founding Member of RVOSA' teeshirt.........

Agreed....those jacks under the slides with what appears to be sand/gravel for a base is an invitation for damage to the slides. Hope they are settled.

I like those stabilizer arms that attach to the frame at one end and to the base of the stabilizer jack (screw type scissor jacks). They deploy easily by loosening one bolt and retighten when jacks are extended. I only use one per jack but if you are truly obsessed you can add two per jack. For my trailers just one per jack on two of my 4 jacks makes a heck of a difference with stability and makes a lot more sense engineering wise and is simple to use. I also use an x jack between the wheels, especially for the side that is up on leveling blocks. wheel blocks don't work as well for wheels that are up in the air and it kind of locks that axle from rocking back and forth (but it does not keep the trailer from bouncing up and down on the springs.). So unless you set your trailer in concrete up to the rails there will always be some movement. FYI, I found the stabilizing arms on ebay cheaper than retailers....Good luck and have fun....Walt

We shorten the length of the ram Jacks by using blocks of wood and then put 2 jack stands at the rear of the trailer. Barely any movement.
