Trailer Leveling

We have a fairly new Windjammer 3006W and love the TT. My only issue is leveling. It has the electric stabilizers, but the unit tends to lean to the left (side with both slides) and even settles a bit on the left after a few days of setup. This even on a level lot. I typically put small leveling blocks under the left wheels to compensate but now wonder if the electric stabilizers are even with it. Thought about adding a removable type scissor jack right in front of the wheels to help level the TT. I saw where Old Coot just added the same electric stabilizers in front of the tandem to limit movement, mine is more of a leveling issue. With that, are the lightweight trailers more prone to "flex" in the frames? Thought?

I lot of people will "level" with the slide-side being an inch high to account for the expected settling.

So I'm NOT crazy.... I've only had this trailer out once (my first slide out). I'm not a level-nazi, but I get it pretty close. I walked around a few hours later and happened to glance at the level on the front end...about 1/2" low. I wondered how many people leveled a little high on the slide side.

We generally don't do it, but I've read here of people doing it. Remarkably, we haven't been able to feel any settling. But, we also don't have any mounted levels to be able to see it at a glance- though, pretty sensitive to being out of level (as are 2 of our doors- they swing shut when we aren't level). I can usually stand inside and tell you which side is high/low and out of curiosity have proven it with baby bottles on the counter.
