Shake in 28BHBE

So, we have our unit set up at our seasonal and our stabilizers are resting on 12" chunks of railroad tie with our bal-x chocks between the wheels. I still get a noticeable amount of shake when someone either rolls around in the bunks, or someone walks around. Any way to minimize this further? Or is this just the way TT's are?

Place one of these inexpensive jacks under the frame near the center of the trailer on each side and you will see a difference.

Since you are at a seasonal site, I would put all four jacks under the trailer since they come in sets of four.

I have seen a bunch of TT blocked up under the frames, but I don't want to have to do that every time we decide to travel. More work than necessary methinks. Thanks for the tip/idea!!!!

Wiggles

I have all four of my crank down jacks down as well as 6 hand screw jacks on the frame and my 40' Bungalow still wiggles around.
Short of taking the wheels off and setting it on a foundation your will always get some movement.

These things are amazing. I use them when we camp and wow, what a difference. I've only used 2, put one on each side just in front of the tires.
