Bouncing TT

I purchased a Valterra stabilizer prior to my camping trip last weekend. I was able to stabilize the rear end under the bumper. It helped when someone used the restroom in the rear of the trailer. It did nothing for the front, which bounces every time you move. I'm considering purchasing one for the front door area but height of the frame might be an issue. They come with one per box.
I guess I'm disappointed that it wobbles in the first place because I never experienced this problem with my prior travel trailer. I was noticing that where the bolts connect the stabilizer scissor jack to the frame there is some give that does not seem necessary but maybe there's a reason for it. If I tighten those bolts up will I mess anything up does anybody know? It does NOT appear that the bolts are loose but it appears that there is give that would allow it to move a little bit back and forth.

I have a Whitehawk 27rbok summit edition
Tuff shell
Glacier package

These can extend out to 17 inches. I use them on my trailer and they cut the bounce in half

Did you experience more issues with rocking side to side or front to back? I'm just curious because mine seems to rock from side to side more. How to do your stabilizer Jacks have any give to them from side to side? Mine do and I don't know if tightening the 4 bolts that hold them on will help. This is a brand new travel trailer by the way.

Also have found trailer is more stable if the jacks don't go down too far...try putting a thick block of wood under them.

Here is the link to the slide out stabilizers we purchased. These made all the difference for side to side movement.

Happy Camping!

Look online for Winfield stablizers. I put them on the back stabliizer jacks ( modified the jacks to accept the 3/8 inch bolts), did not want to cut into the insulation of the glacier package of the 27dsrl. These are the only ones I found that do not require you to mount to the frame. Work amazingly well!. Very little rock noticed after installation.

I use scissor jacks set in the middle for long stays. Otherwise, we just live with it. Hardly notice it. i guess that's why houses are built on foundations.
