After using the trailer a few times we found there was a lot of bounce close to the center of the coach. Adding the jacks helped a lot and because of where they are mounted can help with levelling the unit. Also at the same time Installed the mud flaps to keep the tar off the waste valves etc.

That looks like it would work well to stop some bouncing.

I have only owned pop ups and for us they do not recommend that we level the unit with stabilizers. It can warp our frame a bit and make the door not easy to open/close. Not sure about using stabilizers to level a TT. Have you always leveled your TT with the stabilizers?

I won't say I only "level it" with the added jacks but I can crank one side or the other up too fine tune it as the jacks are mounted to the same portion of the structure added for the axles to mount too. Basically instead of the axle lifting up the jack is. No problems inside with doors not closing etc.

Do you have the jacks attached perminately and if you do How? I have same type sissor jacks have not mounted perminately yet.

Just enlarges picture and can see

They are mounted to the frame with the supplied hardware. I did do a trial run first w/o mounting them and they worked best for me behind the axle.
