wildwood 230bxhl shaking

I've done the searching and have seen so many different responses to tt shaking after set up. Some say use wood blocks under stabilizers, some say don't. Some say with scissor jacks only, some don't. Some say use jacks on frame, some don't... so many mixed messages so I'm asking for my specific model. What's the best way, other than no one walking around inside, to stop the shaking of the tt when set up at campground. More when someone walks in back than in front. Thanks...

Start with wheel chocks on each side if you don't already use them.

Start with tandem wheel chocks, like x-chocks, along with the stabilizers.
The next step would be something like JT Strongarms.

have the wheel chocks but don't use them on the short weekend trips. Going on a week long trip next week. Will use them again and see how much of a difference it makes. Husband walks heavy in the tt says he doesn't really notice the shaking...I try and walk "lightly" when I'm in the back so I guess its not as big of a deal for him...thanks for the answers

I have the same model and just using x-chocks on one side along with making sure I get the stabilizers good and snug to the ground I don't really feel any shaking. I will say however, it just being a pretty lightweight camper I think there is always a light amount of movement and if you are sensitive to that you will probably notice.

I have a 22 foot X-lite. Even with stabilizers down, it will still shake when someone walks around inside. These units down have shock absorbers, just leaf springs.

My only suggestion would be to have lighter occupants but that could cause some problems.

Same model here as well (2016) and get stabilizers snug on wood blocks and chock the tires. I also use one of the step supports that screw to get snug. Don't notice too much movement at all.
By the way, i've put a post in the tips and tricks asking about a problem with the polycord on the awning. Have you had any problems with your working out?
