OP, I've discovered that if my coach is level to start with the jacks only go down far/hard enough to touch the ground, allowing a bit of movement. If I'm an inch or two low in front it's a bit better and if I'm off in 2 axis to start with it's rock solid. Last time out when it was wobbly I raised the driver's side a bit manually then re-leveled, gave a nice solid feel.

Make sure that if you are parked on an un-level spot that the rear tires are uphill.

Dave,

That is something I am going to note and attempt to validate in our case as well. However, I suspect I will come to the same conclusion.

With my coach, I sometimes have to re-level after 3 or 4 days due to the leveling pads sinking into the ground. I have a 3-point jack system. Usually it's the front jack that sinks into the ground.

Yep, good idea to have pads as a few have mentioned. I use pieces of 2x12 cut into squares then nailed with the grain running across each other, like plywood. On soft ground I may have to re-level once even with the pads under the jacks.

Ditto on the spacers. I made mine using 2 2"x12"'s square with 2 pcs. 4"x4" in between. I've found that the less the jacks are extended the less wobble there is. Note that you will never get rid of it all, just try to reach a happy medium.
