I was going to say, "Is there bad beer?", but I have had some bad beer before.

Hey Wobbles....we would love o meet him! Last time we did that with one of AquaMan's buddies, he bought himself a FR camper and now travels along with us!

Great, he is truly a jolly good fellow. I may just ask my buddy if he would be interested in attending with his own rally group there.

I saw a post about JT Strongarms so if you have them on your campers I want to test them out My big camper still tends to move around just as bad as my 21 foot TT did. It's annoying when the kids are in the garage area. The tiniest movement and the camper starts "rocking" a bit.

And you tighten them via dipping the front of the camper then tightening t handles and raising camper back to level?

Never tried that method. This might be a good learning rally for me.

You'll be amazed at what you might learn at Rally when the PHrogs are around!

Even though I've owned a camper since late 2012 I still consider myself very much a noob so I am always trying to learn and find better ways to do things. A rally like this with many other experienced campers will hopefully help me more. Reading here is good but I learn better "hands on" or actually seeing what works.

This is per jt strongarms directions.

Just tightening the t handles after leveling will not stabilize your camper.

Oh my bad. I don't have them yet. I just want to see how they work and do they actually help with the rocking and bouncing. I am considering buying them but want to see them in action first. I currently only have the landing gear, rear stabilizers, and one xchock, along with normal chocks/wood blocks.

I'll gladly demonstrate the effectiveness of jt's at the rally for you!

I went to install my big level on the front of the camper this weekend but I didn't have a big enough drill to do the job. My Craftsman 19.2 volt do well at most things except drilling through steel. Next trip out I'll take my corded drill and maybe a better/new bit so I can get that thing installed. It will be nice to see it from the rear view mirror.

You will need to throw away the sign "If this camper is a Rocking, Don't come a Knocking". JT's will do the trick!
