I feel for you, I have Lippert Ground control 2.0. Just tried to level my Sesimic at a RV park here in Colorado and it said Success? Right rear stabilizer wasn't even touching the ground and the middle jacks weren't even on the ground? Tried it again by raising rear jacks and same thing..... Pure junk. Been gone 3 weeks with this thing and it only worked properly 1 time. Jayco should be ashamed......
As for the rocking look at JT Strongarm

Hey Guys,

I did not really try this yet, but did anybody try to install the BAL stabilizers front to back and side to side? I bought four of them and would like to maximize the results.

Thanks!

Hey Bono- I finally found a way to stop 99.9% of the side to side rockin and rollin.
For each end of trailer frame, I cut 2 - 2x4s at 32"-34", angled the top(to inside I-frame) and bottom(on the ground) to accept the vertical frame and the grade. Attached a 5/16' eye bolt in each one 8" from ground and hooked a ratcheting strap on the eyes. Tighten it up and, voila --- no more rockin and rollin.

Stole the mod from Pinterest and this forum.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

Big1- Just winterized and took it all down yesterday. Sorry. Don't know how to post pics anyway.
On this forum, search for Homemade Stabilizers and that's where you'll see some pics, Or go to Pinterest and search for stabilizers....that will give you pics etc.

Just used them for a week in AZ and the TT was rock solid.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

BAL Lock Arms

Like "Bono" I bought 2 pairs of the BAL Lock arm stabilizers for my 29BHDS on a recommendation. Has anyone else installed 4 arms and if you did what way did you configure them. Any advice would be appreciated. I was also looking to add the BAL X chocks to help.
Happy Rving to those that can, with a half of foot of snow still on the ground here it will be at least 2-3 weeks before we are out of storage.
Cheers
Chuck

I just purchased 3 pairs of these. I'll use 2 on each landing gear leg and 1 on each rear leg (both going from leg to center of rear cross frame for lateral movement. I'll make and post a before and after video of how well this works for taking out the movement inside the 5er.

I want to add my $0.02.

We have a 2016 X23F. Somehow this summer we managed to really bend up two of the 4 standard Jayco scissor jacks. Honestly, they're pretty flimsy. No idea how they bent, I think the trailer must have shifted on us one trip, anyway.....

Wanting to firm up the trailer, I bought 4 of the 7500# BAL scissor jacks, two sets of the stabilizer bars (4 bars total), and a pair of X chocks.

To answer a previous question, everything uses a 3/4" socket.

Replaced the scissor jacks first, this in and of itslef was a huge improvement, the heavier BAL jacks are super stable on their own. But the trailer still moves. By the way, the bolt pattern was the same on the frame, just had to enlarge the holes for the larger bolts that were included with the BAL jacks.

X-chocks make another massive difference, they basically stopped all of the front to back motion now. But the trailer would still wiggle side to side pretty good.

I installed one set of the stabilizer bars, both on the curb side of the trailer, installing them side to side, so basically coming from near the center of the front and rear crossmember rail, and bolting to the footpad of the jacks.

Once I snugged these bars up, I could barely budge the trailer, even when pushing sideways on the front and rear corners. Rock solid.

I don't think I need the second set of the stabilizer bars and will probably return them.

Total cost just under $300 for the jacks, x-chocks and one set of bars. Worth every penny. Can not say enough about how absolutely un-movable the trailer is now.
