are you talking about movement in the trailer when your camping? if so i put wood under my corner jacks. the more wood the better. i use 6" x 6" peices w/ some marine grade 2" x 10"s. works for me. others also use a wheel chock that goes between the tires and you use a wrench to tighten it.

Or something like JT stabilizers if all else fails.

O.K. o.k., Sorry, I can't help this! Get a copy of the movie The Long,long trailer and watch it for tips on how Nicky gets rid of Tasey's ROCK collection, this will solve your problem of trailer rock!

Get a good set of wheel chocks and remember the farther your stabilizers have to come down before they start tightening up the more rocking you will have in the trailer. I am looking at a set of plugitright stabilizers for our PP.

I agree...get the wheel stabilizers (place between the wheels)and add some blocks below your sissor jacks to minamize their extention.

I was not sure what to think when I opend this one up. I thought someone has figured out a good way to get rid of the DW!!!! I still like my plan of keep her drinking (water) while on the road and she will need to stop sometime. If anyone sees a lady walking around the rest area looking for her truck and camper,,,, walk away slowly..



For the record I'm only joking on all accounts.. I would not trade my DW for 3 Crossroads trailers. hahahahah



Where is spring, I think this weather and waiting is getting to me.

You might have to throw in a real truck, a Ford, then the deal will close.

Yep - still here Back on topic though, I would really like to get a set of the stabilizer bars for the lil' cruiser this year. Does anybody have any input on the pros/cons ofPlugitRightvs the JT's. Do the bars for the scissor jacks on the rear make that much difference? Any difference in the intallation of the two brands

Both sets do the same function. Some say JT's are built better, but I decided to save some money and bought PlugitRight.They work just fine and I have been very happy with them.I have also had the pleasure of meeting Dutch and Diana and I think they are "top shelf" kind of folks. CW has the same thing for the same price as PlugitRight, but charges for shipping. The rear scissor jacks are worth it and eliminates the side-to-side movement. Similar installation. I added a piece of angle iron for the front center bars to have a solid mounting surface. My 06 only has the front storage sheet-metal pan to mount to.



Tip when setting up for a "rockless"camper:Run jacks a full turn or 1/4"past desired height, tighten bars, drop jack back the 1/4" to desired height, bars are "rock" solid.
