Question on shaking inside when parked

I read the article with the above subject line but it was for an Eagle which, I believe, has a 4 jack system compared to the 6 jack system on our Pinnacle. However, we too are getting shaking on the inside. I had several 2 X 12's cut up in 12" sections and I have them stacked on each other to try and only use the minimum length of the outside part of the jack system (no part of the pin jacks extended) on each of the jacks but still get the shaking effect. Any suggestions?

Look at JT Armstrongs (or something similar) or Kingpin stabilizer tripod. We have the tripod and it works great! Very little movement over the front jacks.

Installed the SteadyFast system on our trailer and it eliminated the shaking.
We have the LCI Ground Control 2.0 6pt leveling system on our FW.

I've had systems similar to the JT Strong Arm system (i.e., Eliminator system from Camping World) on previous trailers and I feel the SteadyFast system is easier and better.

Hope this helps.

My trailer is not a fifth wheel but this is what I did for $25.

3 ratchet straps
2 2x4's
6 eye bolts
Oh and I painted the black too just not in the photo. So add another $5 for the rattle can of paint.

Cut to fit within the trailer frame and pull tight. Took 100% of the wiggle out. I can hang my little flash light by the door and jump up and down or shake side to side and it doesn't even move! I was just about to click purchase on Amazon for the JT stabilizers but found this idea off the forum and headed to lowes and saved over $200. This forum is awesome!

RV's are not built like houses, whenever and wherever they can use lighter materials they do. So expect some flex which can be stabilized by some of the options suggested.
But it never will go away 100 %.
