Put JT Strongarm on a couple months ago. A lot better. Couldn't be happier.

We use JT Strongarms and x chocks which has removed almost all the motion in the trailer.

I used a king pin tripod sometimes when the nose has to be raised up due to slant of camping site. But I will say that the x-chocks made the most noticeable difference in motion.

I was not impressed with king pin stabilizer. Decided it was not worth the room to haul it around. Another thing that works is to stack blocks under the levelers to shorten the leveler throw. After adding the blocks and the levelers are finished getting level raise the levelers about two inches more to relieve the weight on the suspension. It does reduce the movement but you will need to haul blocks. X type wheel chocks help add to the stabilization.

Thank you folks for all the input on the kingpin stabilizer. It was something that we were seriously considering. I know that this isn't the right forum but the other addition were wondering about is the surge protector. 22 years of camping and never had any issue but thinking maybe it is time?

Look at Progressive Industries for electrical protection.

If you have a tendency to stay in out of the way, older, lightly populated campgrounds you should invest in a surge protector. Progressive industries has a good selection.

The EMS is much more than just surge protection. This is what I've been using, and recommending, for years.
Progressive Industries 30 Amp Portable Electrical Management System - Surge Guards - Power Protection - Electrical
Prices vary a lot so shop around. They stand by their products very well too.
