We have movement anytime someone does anything. 4 manual corner jacks and just added x-chocks this year. The x-chocks are of little or no help. Thinking one or two more manual jacks in center of TT.
I also have an much older 26' TT (Taurus) on hunting land that has the cement blocks on each corner, yes completely stable, but as noted earlier very impractical for most...

X Chocks helped a lot with our 30ft trailer. Cut down on a lot of movement. We also used to use a king pin stabilizer, but haven't used it on this unit.

THANKS for all the replies, help and pictures - looks like there are solutions!

Thanks for the feedback and comments everyone! It appears I'm not the only one not happy with the electric jacks that came with the trailer, but the idea of adding additional jacks appears to be sound, and I'll keep experimenting with that to find the right placement. Thanks again to everyone who helped!

Lavatory design Issue

We purchased a 2015 Jayco White Hawk TT almost a year ago and noticed a very particular situation with the location of faucet in the lavatory unable us to use it properly.
On this unit the faucet in the bath is practically un-useful. We are practically unable to wash our hands because faucet neck is too short and close to the sink.

We contacted Jayco and they declined our request to replace lavatory/faucet.

I have included pictures taken from our 2015 TT as well as picture of the 2016 Model where you can see Jayco has fixed a poorly designed lavatory/faucet.

I use the concrete blocks on our seasonal site here in the Georgia mountains. I have removed most of the TT movement, but I need to re-adjust them every few weeks due to the blocks settling. (Yes they are straight... had to go out and look at them after I posted the picture)

Bouncing TT

I am disappointed in how much my Whitehawk 27rbok bounces. I bought the TT new in March 2016. The stabilizer scissor jacks don't stop the rocking. I don't know if I can use x chocks. The tires are 16 inches apart. I owned a 2006 27 ft TT I traded (not a Jayco) for several yrs and never experienced stabilizer issues. I have a call in to the service department to get the stabilizer Jacks checked out.

Try a set of the stack jacks as shown in post 12 of this thread. Place one in front of the wheels on each side of the trailer, it will help with the bouncing.

Take a look at this post. These work great! They are easy to make and will get rid of 99% of the bounce and shake you are experiencing.

Let me know how it goes!

the stabilizers are very minimal to stop bounce and movement because they are only on the 4 corners and leave the middle with the axles to move and bounce. I added 2 scissor jacks in front of the axles with adjustable bars attached from them to about 3 foot in front of them on the frame. I also made a tongue jackstand that stabilizes the tongue jack
