5er Wobble

Newbie here. Just got and set up my 5er and used auto level. It is level but has a wobble to it especially in the rear. I have the 6 jack auto level. The jacks are extended pretty far out on the rear. I think if I pull up the rear jacks and add some leveling blocks so the jack is not extended so far and relevel that that will take care of it. Am I barking up the wrong tree? Also if the tires are off the ground on one side by about an inch do I need to put blocks under it? The Curse of the newbie.

Thanks in advance!

I also have the auto level. What I do to reduce wobble is try to keep all 4 wheels on the ground. I do this by making sure the from jacks are partially extended before I pull the pin and drop the front legs. I also use some wood blocks to level up the trailer from side to side before auto leveling. Still get some wobble but it helps.

I haven't tried the locking scissor jacks between the wheels. Would like to hear if others have found this is helpful or not.

1st, all tires should always be on the ground. I use 2x6's for this. I try to get as close to level side to side using these before auto level. Next the longer the legs are extended the more wobble you will have. I use 6x6 blocks to reduce that distance then I auto level. I also have the Steadyfast system that is kind of like JT Strong Arms that also helps. And since mine is 42' I also use a tri pod under my kingpin for long stays.
