scissors chocks/stabilizers

I am new to RV 5th wheel. Please lend your experience with scissor style wheel stabilizers. Do they do what is advertized on the sales literature?

Chris I disagree on this one. I have a pair of X chocks and feel an appreciable difference in RV montion when parked. It does involve proper leveling and use of the rear stablizer jacks. IMO and you are entitled to yours:

chocks

If you are trying to take the shake out of your rig checkout Steadyfast stabilizers. They work.

X2 We have noticed a difference since we added them to our set up process.

X2, and they don't necessarily have to be the steadyfast brand to work and do the job.

I have the JT Strongarms and do notice a remarkable difference with them.

Travel well,
Jim

To get back on the OPs topic, yes the X chocks work well for front to back movement but don't remove all the side to side rocking.

That is true. I suppose that is why others mentioned JT and Steadyfast those companies claim they do. I can't support that I don't have them.
