Red face Fifth Wheel Shaky When Parked???

Hello to all, we have just got into fifth wheel camping and love it. We have only used it twice since we bought it (Jayco Designer 36' long) at the end of summer. we are very careful to level it correctly . It has the 4 jacks and the tripod on the front of the gooseneck but when you step down from the bath area into the kit. area which is the middle , the tailend or living rm shakes some . We are considering putting jacks ( portable ) behind the steps under the camper which would support the middle more?? Is that a good idea ? If not what would help to take the shaking out of it when we are parked? Thanks Janet Tazewell,Va.

Do you have the wheel chocks that go between the tires or the ones that are placed on the ground in front and behind the tires?
I would recommend the chocks that go between the wheels such as
BAL or

Janet, if and when I can figure out how to post pics, you will notice that my Jayco Eagle has the JT strongarms installed. They take out most of the movement. I have never used any of the other options that are mentioned but lots of folks have and after trying the JT's they wouldn't go back.
