New Salem Hemisphere Owner

We recently retired our pop up and graduated to a brand new 35 foot Salem Hemisphere. The biggest issue we have is with excessive floor shake. We will be staying in one park for an extensive period but would like to avoid concrete block supports as recommended by fellow campers. We've been researching approaches such as the use of X chocks and supplementary support members but would be interested in recommendations for our particular model given the propane line running along the bottom of the right hand side frame and the cover on the bottom. We're also considering tie down methods.

We appreciate having a forum for airing issues like this and look forward to participating.

Welcome aboard!
Congrats on the camper!

Single most item IMO. Would be stabilizers mounted on your jacks .
In my profile albums you can see mine .
They are wonderful.
You can buy them or make them . I made my fronts and purchased bal brand for rears.

Agreed- as well, the between the wheel chocks (X-chocks or RotoChoks seem to help, too). Even with both of those I feel like I have a pretty good amount of shake to mine still. I plan on putting jacks fore and aft of the axles.

Congrats on your new Salem Hemisphere. We have JT strongarms and home made wheel chocks on ours. Very little movement.
