RV came with stablizers and we were use to havingsizzor jacks on our other RV. We did try using the leveling blocks but felt the trailer moved and shook. Do you putsizzor jacks on the Rv with the stablizers? What is the most stable method that everyone uses for leveling and stable unit?
Thanks I love this site it really does help with tons of questions! The input is just great

My camper came with jacks, I put a set of stabiliizersers also on the back. I level camper with jacks and then put down stablizers down tight with a rachet strap between both feet to hold tight. The strap helps stop the feet from spreading.

dmess109, I'd do a search on the forum as this subject has been discussed many times before, lots of good information.

cwit, What is the purpose of the "ratchet strap"? I've never heard of doing this before. On my CF30SK I've never see any spreading of the feet.

Your haven't mentioned whether your rig is a Trailer Trailer or a Fifth Wheel. The jacks don't really stabilize the trailer from movement. To prevent movement of the trailer, whether a TT or 5vr, a set of JT StrongArms or similar device is the way to go.
