Another 228d question - stabilizers

Our "new" 12' box 228D sways (like when teenagers roll over in bunks) much more than our old 10' box Jayco, even tho the crank-down stabilizer jacks seem stronger. Is this primarily due to the longer box?
In other threads, some mention replacing the original one-arm stabilizers with scissors, then remounting the original ones near mid-point.
Would this help diminish the swaying?? If so, should I replace all 4 original stabilizers, or just perhaps the 2 on the long-bunk end (rear)? ((I understand that stabilizers are not lift jacks, and the structural problems that can result if you use them that way))...and thanks.

Installing a set mid-ship will help greatly.
