stability in question

Our 2019 Vibe 26RK is set up at a campground at a lake, and will not be moved. We have a seasonal set up, and for a mere $150 we can leave it there through the winter and just open it up in the spring. I have a question though. Since it is set up "semi-permanently" so to speak, what are the chances that it will "settle" and need to be re-leveled and restabilized? I recently noticed that when someone walks through the TT, it's bouncing (if that is the term I can use?). I realize that this is not a secured, tied down structure like a modular home, and that there will be some give and take with the stability, but when I am laying in bed reading and someone walks through, I feel like I am on the road! Very noticeable to the point that it is getting irritating! Would it help to relevel/resecure the place? It is not on a concrete pad, just dirt and gravel areas, and we have had a great deal of rain this summer in the area. Any suggetions would help! TIA!

What do you have under the stabs, wheels and front jack?

My brother and son set it all up - what I can see is flat concrete squares as a base, then concrete blocks and wooden pieces between the ground and the stabilizer jacks. the jacks are not fully extended, so I'm guessing that would not be the issue? I am not at the site at the moment, but can send pictures in a few days.

Take some pics if you will. Sounds as though there has been some settling during wet weather. Could also be the blocks are too small. We will see.

We are staying three months in an RV resort that has a lot of rigs set up full time. Most have Xchocks and additional screw jacks to augment the regular jacks.

+1 for x-chocks - they help stabilize a great deal. Donít over tighten and damage tires tho!
