The underbelly is enclosed and cannot use stabilizer struts (no exposed mounting points). We spent a month in Florida and the shake was wearing both the wife and I out. Need to fix this NOW!! LOL.Also, Should we use a block of wood under each stabilizer, would that help?
Wood blocks under the stabilizer arms will do nothing for this issue. Wheel chocks (assuming you have tandem axles) will minimize fore and aft movement. Vertical movement is caused by the trailer moving up and down on the suspension system as folks move around. Therefor, the only way to eliminate vertical movement is to lift and support the whole trailer weight using jacks, etc so that the trailer suspension (wheels, axle, springs/torsion bars) are not carrying any weight. For me, that would be a major league PITA, so we use wheel chocks and reasonably tightened down stabilizers and learn to live with the vertical movement.
