2016 8329ss Bouncing/shaking

Just got our new 8329ss. As far as we can tell, we have it level, but it bounces and shakes. When we walk past the refrigerator, the TV bounces. If someone turns over in the bed, the far end of the trailer moves. Does any one else have this problem? What can we do to make the trailer not bounce and shake?

I installed the steadyfast system from Hansom Industries it takes 45 seconds to install after I set the camper in place. It eliminates 75-80% of the bounce.

Buy the wheel locks that go between the trailers wheels.

I downsized from a class A to my TT and the bouncing and shaking drove me nuts. I solved the problem by getting X-chocks for both sides and installing the steady fast system and now my trailer is rock solid.

Using stabilizers in front of the axles is about the only thing that really works. I use the X chocks they stop the rocking back and forth but you still feel it move up and down without something in front of axles. You can use the camco stabilizer stands for temporary use or permanently mount scissor jacks to the frame. The latter is much better, they have a longer reach and don't have to crawl under unit each time.

I had a bit of a bounce in my TT until we up graded our tires to a more solid heavy duty tire with a nice firm side wall. The factory tires have more bounce even with the x-chucks that we use as well.

That's just what we experienced.

I use two X chocks and added another set of stab jacks by the wheels. These all helped alot

My TT came with scissors jacks at each corner but there was still some noticeable "bounce". Mounted two more in front of the forward axle and now I don't feel any movement at all. All the jacks have 12x12" "wall scuff" pads permanently attached. I use a Makita drill to lower them. I have the torque release on the drill set at about thirty foot pounds so all the jacks have the same pressure when extended. The added scissor jacks are 7,500 pound strength and about $70 from Amazon.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
