Hi, I am new to the site and have a '05 PP. I have one question: has anyone discussed the movement of the unit when it is set-up with the slides out and jacks down? When I walk into the living room from the kitchen the whole trailer shakes. I have looked intoreplacing the BAL Scissor jacks or adding the BAL eliminators. But the price is kind of high for an experiment!!

We have BAL wheel chocks and the Eliminator stabilizers and both made a big difference in reducing movement when setup.

I swapped the scissor jacks for the BAL 3 point jacks and that helped a lot. I also got wheel chocks that can be tightened. Also be sure to tighten everything up after the rig has been sitting for a few hours.

We have a home made version of the wheel chocks and a tripod on the pin. There is still some but much better than without.

I think if you get a set of stabilizers, (really doesn't matter which brand) you will be very happy. Add a set of wheel chocks, and you should be just about wiggle free.
Just to throw one out there for you to look at, here is a link.

We use the Plugitright as well and are quite happy with the results. And yes you need the wheel chocks.
