Stabilizing Trailer

I have a 2009 BHDS 35.5' length. I have a problem stabilizing the unit on concrete and/or dirt. I use wood blocks if needed and make sure my jack are snug and firm. I have experienced extreme side to side movement. I can be laying in a bunk in the rear and when someone in the front BR turns over I can feel the unit rock. I also use wheel chock between the wheels on each side and that stops any forward or backward movement. Can't figure it out. Any comments out there?

We also use stabilizers just ahead of the wheels. With bal chalks and the extra stabilizers we have very little movement. The only way you can completely eliminate the movement would be to take all the weight off the springs and tires. If it had blocks every 8 ft with the wheels off the ground you could probably eliminate all movement but that would not be very practical.
