Update on JTs: After our first trip out, we were trying to eliminate some of the rocking motion in our 34-foot Rockwood 8312SS. I did some research and heard great things about the JT stabilizers. I ordered a set made for travel trailers from Tweety's. Hubby got really busy at work and didn't get around to installing them for about a month. Then he decided he'd better get busy since our Bristol trip was fast approaching. Unfortunately, it looked like it was going to take more modification to our particular trailer than he was willing to do. In the back, it was going to require drilling near one of the holding tanks, which he didn't want to do. He called our dealer, and they said it needed some kind of additional bar on the back so the drill holes could go into that. They said they'd be glad to do the work but wouldn't be able to get to it for a couple of weeks. We decided to get a set of X-Chocks and hope they would take enough motion out so we could get by this trip. (They ended up working really well and took out all of the front-back motion--leaving on the lateral motion). Now these JTs are heavy (shipping $) and of course there is a re-stocking fee if we return them. We are still trying to decide what to do. If we keep them, the dealer gets $85/hour for labor and says it will be about a 5-hour job to install them properly on our trailer.
