34RSBS Questions

So this is the second weekend trip out. I have the X chokes between the tandem axles. The stabilizer jacks are all down and snug. This trailer is still bounced and not solid. My little 248RBS was solid when I did all of this. Any ideas. The second thing how do you turn the step light on? No switches I have used work. Thanks.

Lighter frames have more flex, so create a few more support points.
Is the light bulb OK from the step light?

Your new trailer is MUCH bigger and has more slides. As ALJO said, it's likely there is more frame flexing.

Some folks put an additional support under the frame near the axles to reduce the bounce from the springs and tires.
Some folks put diagonal bracing between the stabilizers and the ground. There are a number of products and methods for this.

Usually the step light goes on when the awning lights are switched on. Have you tried that?
