If the jacks don't have a good base you'll get more movement? In other words, if you're on gravel and your jacks don't have something under them to help distribute the weight some, it won't take long for the gravel to scoot out from under the jacks?

You could also try additional blocking, so the jacks don't have to drop as far. That can often take a lot of the wiggle out.

Not all DP dump the air when leveling. My coach does a combination of the two to get level. I push a button, the jacks go down to the ground, and then it decides what air bags need some air out, and what jacks get more hydraulic pressure. Its solid as a rock.

Just put a sign on the door:

"If The Coach is Rockin' don't come Knockin' "

Mine does that too.. But the more weight on the jacks the less rock.

For assorted reasons I suspect I have air in the lines to my rear jacks.. I also have another jack issue. Once I get the secondary issue fixed, I'm planing on bleeding the lines to the rear jacks.. This may fix it.
Home is where I park it!
