On my 39 ft National Tropi-Cal when parking I deflate the air bags then deploy the jacks to level the coach. My wife complains that the coach is not stable enough and that it rocks side to side whenever I walk around. Although I do notice it moving it does not bother me. Is it just my coach or do they all shake? She also swears our old coach did not do this of course it did not have 3 slide outs either.

The HWH auto-air-release is a timed release. Could it be you have a too-slow release so the 30 seconds allowed doesn't delfate bags all the way, and the bags are still doing enough support to compete w/the jacks? You can check this by hitting the manual release till there's no more hiss. If you do that after an auto level you should be able to tell if this is an issue.

In my opinion they all move to some extent and with the slides out it amplifies the movement. I have seen people that are parked for the winter in florida put jacks under the living room slide. They say it realy helps.

I have found that if you don't extend the jacks enough you will experience more movemnet.
