See if this helps:

Are you stationary or do you move about a lot? What you described sounds like a fair amount of work.

We had similar issues on our last trailer. I installed scissor jacks mid-frame - not much help. I made blocks out of 2x6 lumber and stacked them high... not much help.

If we still have a wiggle problem with our new-to-us Rockwood, this is the route I will be taking:
