I have had satisfactory results using the EasyLift stands. One placed before the axles and one aft of the axles on the opposing side. With a sealed underbelly there aren't a lot of options. I also use the Camco version of the X chocks between the wheels. I made the blocks to fit the conforms of the frame rails and it places the jack screw axis at the center of the fabricated frame rail. The blocks are held captive on the jacks for ease of install. The one in the foreground sets between the slides and out of the way of the dump valves. After the slides are out and stabilizers are down, about 1 1/2 turns from point of contact with the frame made a noticeable difference. The stands don' t have the wobble like the scissors jacks

I put these on my last trailer and they work pretty good to stop the rocking.

Using my new set of xchocks and two valterra stabilizers this week in Navarre beach., FL. IMO, the combination has reduced bounce by at least 75%. I really feel that one more stabilizer on the opposite side will reduce most of what's left of the bounce. Very pleased.

I don't have a link but, they are Camco EAZ-LIFT jack stands from Amazon. 3 position adjustable and with the screws out will go out to 30". The blocks were milled from a block of PVC

I started to buy some xchocks for my windjammer, even had them in my online shopping cart, but then read some reviews about them hurting the tires.

Anyone know anything about this?

Is the Ball Lock-Arm stabilizing Bar as good as the JT Strongarms? Just curious because the BAL are cheaper (more affordable).
