One of these cheap but effective aluminum stack jacks placed under the frame, just in front of the front wheel, on each side will work wonders. I use them along with the BAL X chocks.

I have 4 of the stabilizers pictured above. they seem to do a decent job but I'm still learning the differneces from my 2007 pop up to the 1990 Jayco 250. I have one 4 ton bottle jack that I carry. Going to try it mounted between the wheels this wknd when we go camping.

I would add my 2 cents worth that the X chocks really do help a lot. As said above, they will not completely cure the situation, but they eliminate a lot of the wiggle.

X-Chocks DO the trick. They made a huge difference on our 29X.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but even with my four scissor jacks down, X-chocks in, and pyramid jacks just fore and aft of the axles I still have quite a bit of movement...

Take a look at the JT strongarm stabilizers, they really do work. They cost a little more and do take a little time to install, but you will be happy with the results.

I use the Bal chocks and I put one or two 2 x 6 under each stabilizer so that they are not out very far. Our unit stays pretty solid, even when the wife gets a little frisky :lizard: :hihi:

Do you have any bolted on scizzors or ground jacks? Not having them attached to the frame will allow them to move a little in any direction. If you were to go with 4 points of contact hard mounted with the jack stands near the wheels, fore or aft then the bal x in the tires I bet it would be pretty solid.
