I hear ya! I watch NASCAR on tv, just don't go anymore. Too many seem to have to over indulge in adult beverages.

I just got back from a 5 night camp trip and I used two slide out supports under the large slide. We noticed a great improvement in the stabilization of the trailer. No more rocking. I placed each slide out support on a 2"X10" block of wood, then on top I placed a 4"X4"X36" wood block between the support and the slide floor. I used just enough tension to hold the support in place.

Also I used the pyramid jacks just in front of the front axle, BAL X-chocks on each side and the OEM stabilizer jacks.

Looks like you found YOUR solution! Even though it is a PITA, if it works for you, great! Keep us posted on how it might effect the function of the slide.

Nice glad to hear all worked out.

We have never used the slide out supports-just heard too many horror stories. I do agree that permanently installed aftermarket stabilizers are the best way to go for stability-plus no putting up or taking down and not worrying about where to store them. Hugs, Di
