8310SS Bounces When Walking

So I have the trailer all level, pushed the electric stabilizers up an extra 1-2 seconds, and have chock locks between both wheels on both sides. Still getting a fairly noticeable bounce when we walk. Is there anyway to reduce or even get rid of the bouncing? I have seen the stabilizing bars, but they seem quite pricey.

One in front of the front axle one each side, one behind the rear axle on each side with a chunk of wood underneath each.

Just snug them up.

I wonder how you install these when the underside of your trailer is totally enclosed. On my 8319ss, the only place you can see the frame is where the axle attachment points.

As previously said, the scissors jacks in front of the axle really makes a difference, I have them permanently bolted to the frame, and x chocks also !

i use scissor jacks permanently installed on the frame, it took about 1 hour to install. I also use the xchocks on both sides, we have virtually no movement inside the trailer.
