Yes, mine moves but I ignore it trhinking how nice it is that this "house on wheels" can provide me a home anywhere I care to drive.

It's just an issue you will learn to live with. We use the scissor jacks between the tires and it took out a little more. Since it's just the DW, puppy and I, we don't move around all that much at different times. Once we are in bed, we can feel the puppy walking around (She's only 44 pounds). It's a TT and it's going to flex even if you snugged it all down.

Hmmm...our last trailer didn't move so much but our only had one slide. It's tough, when we fill the dogs bowl with water...We can't fill out but half full or it will spill do to movement...I wonder if it's because we set the stab jacks then put the slides out?

Side to Side movement

Use as many blocks as possible to reduce side to side movement. The main area of movement is in the stab jacks themselves.

JT Strongarm type stabilizers whether homemade or otherwise installed front and back along with jacks in front of the axles, will do more than anything for stopping movement in the trailer. Bal X chocks also help tremendously.

I may bite the bullet and add the JT Strongarm to my Lippert electric jacks. Can't swing the cost right now though, and don't have the time to make them. Already have the X-chocks and they, with tire chocks, are adequate for stopping fore-aft movement.

We add one bottle of water in the puppy's water bowl. Never had a spill other than she's a sloppy water drinker.

My wife has a much easier time doing this than I do! As for the power stabilizers, I really like them. Dan
Took a drive today to see one at a dealer 2 hours from here. The dealer was very happy to show us slides in and out so I see your point in regard to getting to the fridge. Should not be a problem to deploy the slide to pack at home or even to have lunch at a service center or rest area.

Looks like we will get the emerald package which includes the electric stabilizers. Currently looking at ordering later this month for a spring delivery.

Although you can't access the refrigerator but you can access the bathroom. We take a cooler with us but not a port-o-john so that makes it worth it.
If you go with the 27RLWS I would highly recommend you read this thread from page one. There are great modifications to do as well as watching out for things other owners have found to need correcting.

Well I just read all 46 pages of this string. We do love this floor plan and will look to order one for the spring.
