Background story first, then the questions.
Me, my wife and 11 month old take our 29qbh out for the first time. The wind is howling all day long (I was born and riased in Kansas, so I know about wind), the camper is rocking pretty good but not to the uncomfortable stage. Fast foward to 2:00am, in and out of sleep because of the wind gusts, I awake to what feels like the camper being picked up and dropped. I think "this thing weighs 7000#, no way did the wind pick it up and move it." The wife wakes up at the same time, she says I think the camper just moved, I reassure her that nothing happened. Before going back to sleep she needs to use the bathroom, ok fine. She gets back into bed and says "I think I just walked uphill to the bathroom." I reply with "the wind may have rocked the camper enough to get it unlevel, no big deal I'll fix it in the morning." I need to go to the bathroom now...the wife was right uphill to the bathroom, downhill back to bed. I stick my head outside to check the camper and sure enough, the wind had picked up the tongue of the camper, swung it 3-4 feet to the side. Only damage was 2 crushed stabilizer jacks.
Has this ever happened to anyone else and is there anyway to prevent it? (I'm guessing no way to prevent it)
Do the stabilizer members that go across the front and back of the camper really help prevent the side to side swaying?
