2019 Rockwood Ultra Lite

Does anyone use those “ anti- jiggle” devices..that press into tires??? Do they work?? I’ve tried different ways...by NOT extending jacks way out. Any ideas?

Owner of 2019 Rockwood.Got a wireless camera, for the Travel Trailer. I never have used mirror extensions, in YEARS..and managed ok. But with the camera...I can see who’s coming up behind me or about to pass. When backing in campsite....I can turn on audio...and clearly hear directions from behind...plus camera view��

I had them on my previous camper and did not see much difference. The camper I now have has the axles wider so I never invested in a new set for the wider axle for that reason. Not worth the cost.

I only use "anti-jiggle" devices when I dress in the morning. They make me feel young and fit, but they have nothing to do with trailer stability.

Not certain what you mean by "anti - jiggle devices", but I will take a guess that you are referring to the bounce and rocking coming from the suspension when you move about the trailer. If so, I can tell you that I have used a full combination of "x" chocks , "a" frame stabilizer under the bumper, pads under the stabiler jacks that keep the jacks from fully extending and step stabilizers on my 2015 and the movement remains. I have found no way to eliminate it.

My opinion is that the 4 corner jacks are a good basic start, but add an additional pair in the frame span near to the axles so that you remove the vertical frame flex and you'll find a lot of additional stability.


The X-brace does help reduce fore/aft rocking some, but the span of the frame and the fact that it is free to flex and bounce on the springs is a large part of the feeling of movement. Camco makes stands that look similar to automotive jack stands but they have a threaded screw jack instead of the auto repair style that has the rack and latch adjuster.


Adding a pair, or better yet add 2 pair so that you have 2 in front and 2 behind your rigs axles and you will reduce a great deal of the perceived motion.
