Also we found that if you put extra blocks under stab jacks so you only extend them half way or less also helps.

If we keep our Rockwood I am going to add the centre set of jacks like OC has done. I have JT's but the centre jacks would help even more taking the bounce out.

Thanks for the information. I have purchased the X-Chocks and will have some extra big blocks cut at the lumber yard and will possibly give it a try the first of January. If that doesn't work, I will try a set of scissor jacks mounted in the middle of the frame. Forest River sent me a reply that said this was not a problem that they knew of. After reading that, I figured they were going to be of little help.

I bought the stabilizers from CW for the kitchen slide on my IKWS. Also bought one X Chock. I will be taking the stabilizers back to CW after learning they are not necessary and can cause damage to the slide. The one X Chock seemed to help so I will get another one for the other side. I just hope CW takes those stabilizers back with no problem.

I have installed two extra scissor jacks just in front of the wheels one on both sides. This makes them just about in between the front and rear electric jacks. I also have purchased the X-chocks that go in between the tires. I have not tried these yet to see if they help, but should know something before Christmas. I don't see how a jack under each slide out would help and don't plan on trying that. Anyway, hope you find the solution. I will try and post back if I do!

Short of installing one of the cross bracing frame mounted systems like JT Strong Arms, the center stabilizers and x-chocks are what most are doing to correct movement.

I have center stabs and x-chocks in both sides and I'm pretty satisfied with mine.
If I full timed, I would likely go with a frame system like JT's.
