Stablelize

Looking to find something to make camper more solid, the question I have is when the camper is set up stability jacks are down slide outs are out, when you walk in the camper you still get a lot of sway. Any ideas ?

Triangulation. There are several products out there that will help, but it wonít completely disappear.

I like the screw type bottle jacks under the frame at the wheel area. After setting up and level, slightly raise (about 1/4"), place the properly adjusted bottle jacks on 2X4s under the frame, and then slowly lower the landing gear to level. This is only for stabilizing !!! Additionally, I use my portable hydraulic jack (not jacked just screwed) for one of the screw jacks, I bought a screw jack from the junk yard for $5. Living the dream.

Most recommend that you not use jacks under the slide.

Using good quality wheel chocks tightened firmly eliminated the problem in my former campers with sway. No sway issues in our Rockwood!

I know it's not common, but we had a bunch of wiggle side to side. My son flopped, as teens do, into the couch that's in the slide. I watched the opposite side tires lift and drop. Not off the ground, but significant flex.
So, added the two jacks. No more side to side wiggle.

I have 2 of these and highly recommend them. I put one under the steps and the other going the other direction under the rear bumper. I have a 3010 with the big foot levelers, but still wasnít happy with the shake we got when walking around. These are extremely simple to set up and work great!
