High jacks

Hey everyone, I own a 23RLSW. When unhooking from my tv, I have to really raise the tt to get it of off. Then when it's time to stabilize the tt, I'm using a lot of the leveling blocks under the jacks, in hopes of keeping some of the motion out. It seem that the tt is high and I don't want to overextend the jacks. Any suggestions???

do you have to do this on every CG site? You have any pics of your setup on a site? We were at a CG in Mystic, CT this past weekend and there as a jayco Toy Hauler there that had his front jacks almost fully extended, it made me a little weary, but it was due to the site sloping in the front.

I also have a 23RLSW, and it is high, resulting in plenty of rocking. We've learned to move about more smoothly, and I've been working to stabilize it better. Have one X-Chock, may need to get another one. Really try to pile up my wood blocks to keep the stabilizers' extension as short as possible. However, it seems to be the nature of the beast, too.

My Eagle is very high (tongue sits right near 30"). I have two 10' 4x6 posts cut up into ~14" sections that I bring with me, and I usually use most of them. Usually 3 under the tongue and 2 in each corner.

rkresge, I am using a full bag of levelers under each corner, a half bag under the jack, and x-chocks between my tires on both sides. There is still a lot of movement when someone moves inside the trailer. This is all after I get the tt leveled from side-to-side. There has got to be another answer to stopping the movement.

Using a stabilizer bar system helps a lot. I had one on my previous TT, and need to get it installed on my current one. I use the SteadyFast by Hanscom Enterprises. There is another version that I don't have experience with, the JT's Strong Arm.

We have a 23RLSW also and it is very high we had the same problem with the stabilizer jacks extending to far and trailer shaking.

What we did was use 4x6 blocks under each jack reducing the extension of jacks this made the trailer very stable.

I am attaching a link to some pictures of the blocks I use and also the rack I made for the front of the trailer to carry them.

This is in our driveway. I bring these blocks with us where ever we go, and we've needed them more often than not. They can be stood upright or on their side, depending on the amount of height needed. Made out of scrap wood and leftover screws, the price was right. I also bring a tote with eight or ten 16" long 2x6's.

Maybe it's just the picture but that looks a little sketchy.

To help minimize the trailer rocking, I did a product review of the BAL Lock Arm Stabilizing Bar here:
