Adding extra jacks

I am a newbie.

I recently took delivery of a new 351 RSTS that came with the Atwood auto 4 point levelling system. We are noticing a little wobble in the very rear of the camper and looking at the rear jacks it would appear there is a fair bit of real estate between them and the back of the camper. My question is what are my options to stabilize the very rear. Can I easily turn this into a 6 point system or is something manual an option?

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried using the scissor wheel locks between your tires? These added a lot of stability to my 30.5 RLS

Thanks but no scissor jacks on my unit. Thinking about adding them on the frame rails at the further most rear point.

I think he was talking about something like Bal Lock, or something like that, that go between your tires, tighten up and both lock your tires so they don't roll and stabilize your trailer as well, not scissor jacks for the rear of the trailer.

I've used the BAL X-Chocks and found that they helped a bit, but weren't great. I just installed BAL Stabilizer Lock Arms on opposing corners and there's a noticeable difference in the stability of the trailer.

I have the X-Chocks, which helped only a little. This year installed JT Strongarms in the front, which helped a huge amount. Still a tiny bit of a wiggle, but very tolerable. Did not put the JT's in the rear as it would have required drilling into my hitch cross beam, which I am reluctant to do. If that is not an issue, I bet they would tighten everything up very well.
Here's the link: http://www.lci1.com/jt-strong-arm
There are other brands that do similar.
