Stabilizer jacks under LR slide for 8528 IKWS

Hi. a quick question. Besides leveling are the stabilizer jacks s good idea for the longer slide out?
It seems to rock when ever we walk. It seems like leveling doesn't eliminate it. Thanks.

lots of threads on this subject. Do a search, you'll get a good feel for what methods have given acceptable results . Generally, don't support on the slide out itself. Frame of TT only for anything additional. Don't go crazy trying to overcorrect with stabilizer jacks to level TT, that is what boards or blocks under the wheels are for

Don't do it.
Get some JT Strong Arms or the equivalent along with X-Chocks and center scissor jacks under the frame/axle mounts.

We had that problem . Simple fix. Just put some blocks under the bottom step. Takes all the entry and exit motion out.

We are seasonal down by the beach, but I pull it home for the winter to camp late season and early spring. I had the best results with using X-chocks. It eliminated most, if not all, the forward/backward motion. I then use a plain old set of aluminium pyramid jacks on the frame. I put one pair of pyramid jacks just rearward of the rearmost wheel, one pair just in front of the front most wheels, and one pair between that set and the forward stabilizers. I then put a pair under the middle step for the fold-out stairs. This gets rid of most of the movement.
