X chocks will help front to back movement. But anytime you're supporting on springs and axles, you'll get some bounce. Remember the front and back stabilizers are just that. Stabilizers, not supports. We put screw jacks under our RK, one just in frot of the entry door, and one just at the front of the slide on the opposite side. It is virtually solid as a rock, free from any bounce. We used 2x6 or 2x8 pressure treated blocks between the ground and the jack and between the frame and jack to spread out the weight. Of course we are seasonal, and only move once a year -- maybe -- so we were looking for something a little more permanant.

Smile A bit cheaper

I went to an auto scrap yard and bought 4 scissor jacks for $30. Origionally they were intended for jacking up a car to change the tire. I put a 2X6 under each and they work fine.
I did clean them up and repaint them....looks like new.
I use then on our Salem Cruise Lite 195BH.
