I read this somewhere on this forum (might have been you) before we left for our last trip.

Told DH about it, he said..makes sense...so we tried it....it *does* help. We just stacked lego blocks under each leg, especially the high end.

Have found that adding homemade JT Strongarm type cross braces, Bal XChocks and scissor jacks in front of the axles along with an adjustable step support, that 99% of the movement is eliminated. Other than the X Chocks, all are self storing and require minimal effort to utilize.

Mr Coot, why aren't you showing off your handiwork from the mod thread for this issue? That is what I call a solution to this problem, and really makes me want to go find one to do the same thing on my 831FLSS. That looks like a way better investment than strong arms. This support at the axle is obviously needed but not added to these long TT's due to the cost. Electric Stabilizer Jacks for in front of axles

OK, here's what I just did after I traded my scissor jacks for a set of electric stab jacks (after another trade at the Goshen Rally)

We stopped the movement by adding after market permanently installed stabilizers. 8 years and still loving them. Di

X2...I also have BAL bars (just like the JT strongarm) with BAL scissor jacks and 99% of the movement is gone.
