Well we still use the 'old school' pieces of wood method which is FREE, but there are other methods like Lynx blocks. That would be the method for side to side leveling and use the jack in front to level front to rear. Then put down stabalizers.

As far as leveling side to side, if I have the trl within 1/2 a bubble of level I use the sissor jacks to finish the leveling process. You can use the sissor jacks to a certain extent to fine tune leveling the trl. Don't think you have to be exact with the wood/blocks under the tires leveling the trl.

The stabilizers should not be doing any lifting of the trailer frame as far as I know. It is pretty easy to bend the frame from those extreme points where the stabilizers are located. They need to be firmly on the ground, without lifting the trailer. I use lynx blocks to do the side to side leveling. Sometimes it is almost impossible to get it perfectly level, I try to get it as level as possible. front to back is easy, A PTJ rocks ! :)
