Made the mistake of ordering the set of regulars and wanted to make sure the XL would work. I don't have much faith in the cheap plastic chocks.

I am not Jgourlie, but those are the large X chockes. I have a set and they work fairly well. I bought mine at camping world. If you are looking for better stability for the unit, this is what I have done. I found that the electric 'stabilizers', front and back, do not 'stabilize' all that well. (MOD Alert ) I ended up installing scissor jacks just behind the front 'stabilizers' and scissor jacks behind the back 'stabilizers'. With the four scissor jacks lifting a little and the large X chock on the wheels, we can have a dozen people inside the unit moving around and the unit will not move at all. I do not use my electric 'stabilizers' unless we are at a camping spot for one night and will move on the next day and do not put down the scissor jacks.

Thanks for the replies, and yes Brother Les I have come to realize the electric stabilizers really don't do much except add weight to the trailer while towing!😁 Thanks for the mod.

For the front scissor jacks... this is what I did. The skirt in the front area hangs down fairly low and so I would have trouble getting the jack all the way up and not hit the skirt. I added the 'Sav-a-Jac'

SaveAJack.com

I mounted the plates to the rail a little back of the 'stabilizers'. On the door side of the unit, the gas line runs along the inside of the frame rail. For the door side 'scissor' jack, I offset the adaptor plate (several places on the scissor jack top that you can mount the slide in plate to it) 'in' more so the scissor jack does not come close to the gas line.

For the back scissor jacks, I drilled two holes in the bumper mount rail that is welded to the frame rail. This will carry the weight, not on the 'bumper' pushing up, but on the bumper rail straight up to the frame rail. I drilled one hole and dropped in a bolt and then drilled the other hole. The scissor jacks are angled at the 10-11 Oclock and 1-2 o-clock possision so I can leave these jacks on all of the time and be able to crank them up and down and they will not hit the skirting.

Never found stabilizer jacks to do the job better than scissor jacks. The auto level does a better job with the push of a button.
