X17z bounce

Hey guys. So we have upgraded to a x17z from a pop up and love it. One question though when the kids roll over in the front it shakes the trailer front to rear. We have the 4 jack legs Cranked down. Our pop up we had spring loaded legs and chocked the tires front and rear and had no movement. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated

Is your trailer tongue sitting on a wheel or just the post?
When I had a pop up i felt the trailer move when people moved around in the beds, and now with the 19H I have I get the same thing.
I wouldn't over tighten up those stabilizer jacks because you could bend the frame if you go too tight.

Been a camper since I was a kid, and that was a long time ago :)
From pup tents with no floors, to tents with floors and flies, to a pop up, to the expandable.

My pup was always bouncy. Getting our x17z later this week and guessing it'll be bouncy too. Going to try out one of those bal levelers for this htt.. That probably won't help with the bounce all that much but at least the fridge will be level

Our x18D has some shake to it with the 11 year old flipping around in his bunk.

The BAL wheel chocks that go in between the tires makes a huge difference - one of the better investments we made.

I also find that i have to go around and sure the jacks up every couple of days when camping, they seem to loosen up.

there is a delicate balance between the tongue jack and the stablizers. Meaning, that after i go around and drop the stablizers i need to give a crank or two on the tongue... All these things helps make a solid trailer.

Then again, this all could be nonsense depending on the ground you are canping on
