One additional note..... if you do the BAL stabilizers, make sure you measure the distance from your frame to the ground and purchase the correct stabilizer. Right off the top of my head, I believe, if the distance is greater than 22", you need to get the ones that adjust out to 30". Pay attention to that part of purchasing them though. Hope this helps.

The OP maybe should have added a ?mark in the thread title.

Not all rigs need X-chocks to be stable...our Pinnacle would be one example.

Believe me if our rig wasn't stable I'd have done something to help long time ago.

Safe travels...

I have one x-chock that I use and I like it. It is quick and easy to use.

The title was said "with tongue in cheek".
I'm sooo pleased with X-Chocks I'd never leave home without.

Nice rig, LarryG, BTW

I'm glad you clarified that, because I took it as many other apparently did...as an effort to promote/sell X-Chocks here on the forum.

The title "You NEED X-Chocks", the link to a video where the first frame has the title "You need X-Chocks" and the link to Amazon to buy X-chocks certainly give the impression of plugging a product, even if that wasn't your intent.

I'm not trying to be overly critical, as this forum is good because people do provide information about RV products and where to buy them. I did appreciate the information that you and others provided on this product.

But I think your post would have been much more appropriate and well-received if you had done it as a review of the product and posted under the Product Reviews and Evaluations thread http://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f53/ and if you had taken the approach of stating your opinion on the product rather than telling people what they need, even if it was "tongue in cheek" (as that wasn't obvious from your post).

My sincerest apologies; I didn't mean to upset anyone. I'll try and put the title in perspective. Years ago when cordless ratchet drivers first hit the market I read a review on the several major brands on the market. The title of the article was "You Need a Ratchet Driver". I thought it was funny because if you have ever used a cordless ratchet driver instead of cordless screwdriver to run a bunch of screws all day long then you knew EXACTLY what the author meant by the title of his article.
I was so impressed with the way X-Chocks solved an issue for me I just wanted to share my discovery.
Again... my deepest apologies.
Not everybody needs X-Chocks...

X Chocks Worked for me

Well, regardless of what would have been the proper title for the OP to use, for anyone looking for a way to reduce movement, I will tell you that using a pair of x chocks on my Eagle reduced movement by about 85%. So whether you use one brand or the other, this method may be well worth a try. They are fairly inexpensive and really easy to put on and take off.

Just be careful when using them with a cordless drill, because if the screw binds up a little it may twist the x-chock around faster than you can compensate for and as a result it'll take a nice hunk of skin off the back of your hand. Not that I have any experience with that.

Nope. Me neither. I have no experience with that at all.
