I found that these style of rear jacks have a lot more play side to side vs fore to aft....so I used a truck cargo bar with a little modifications & voila, bolt on application to eliminate the movement!
Rear of camper is rock solid & everything stores in the rear bumper tube...you could do a permanent install but wanted to do something quick before our next outing, maybe make it permanent later

In my cargo bars I cut off the ends then welded in a solid slug.
Then I drilled and tapped it to allow for a heim joint.
