Stacker, Scissor Jacks and Universal RV Stabilizer

Received my latest Camping World catalog and saw the jacks for added stability. I have a White Hawk with an enclosed underbelly. Do theses "additional" jacks work on these TT's and actually reduce movement?!? I have the power stabilizing supports on the front and back. Thanks in advance for the advice

I added two scissor jacks under the frame just forward of the wheels and it helps a lot. I had to go with the more expensive 30" jacks so they would reach the ground without being fully extended. I bolted them to the frame with a slight modification to one of them so it wouldn't interfere with the gas line. For me, it was a worthwhile addition.

No sure which jacks for added stability stability you are referring to. I use the universal rv stabilizer that is offered through CW.

I use 2 of these in addition to the stock jacks that came on the camper. These 2 stabilizers make a significant difference. We have 3 kids, so every movement is felt, but these stabilizers help, in my opinion.

The best success I've had with them is using both jacks behind the camper tires along the frame.

My x-chocks reduced trailer movement for me.. The lock the tires and prevent any minimal "rolling" or "rocking" in the front to back direction..

I'm not sure I understand... " behind the camper tires along the frame." Do you place them front to rear, one on the left side frame and one on the right side frame of the trailer (to reduce front to rear movement), or both of them (one behind the other) from the frame on one side of the trailer across to the other side of the trailer (to reduce side to side movement)?

I have the XL X-Chock. It helps the rocking motion. Since you have air filled tires, I was wanting to know if the added jacks keep the TT from bouncing when someone turns over in their bed.
