Blocks under the jacks to get their extension as short as possible and X-chock the wheels.

No problem. We keep our Trilogy fiver as a seasonal and have added 4 Ultra-Fab Aluminum Stacker Jacks. Keep in mind, while these measures will help, it is very unlikely you will ever remove all the movement.

Mine has always moved. We don't even notice it anymore

In addition to lgray's sage advice, we put a tripod stand under the king pin and two aluminum trailer screw jacks under the trailer hitch. Tripods are available online and used ones appear to be plentiful. We also used it to chain our bikes to so they didnt pedal away. The screw jacks were easily found at wallymart in a box of 4. We were parked on a concrete pad for 8 months and never felt any movement walking inside. We did feel a little when someone was going in or out.

If I was traveling and had to choose between a tripod and stacker jacks, I would opt for the jacks. They will take up no more room than a tripod and provide better overall stabilization. We have two, right behind the front jacks and two in the rear, either behind the rear jack or on the bumper area…preference. We found that a hydraulic 6 jack system, like yours, there was no added benefit from a tripod and gave it away. The hitch area was not where our movement was being generated and it was just in the way.

If you are set up for 8 months, why not build a set of nice wooden steps and not use those rickety metal ones?
