Slideout Stabilizers

The question is how "stabilizers" on the outboard side of slides can steady any RV that "pivots" on a foundation that mostly moves side to side?
The slides have furniture on them, so there is no sensed "stability" there.
If square attached to the side of a central square is prevented from swaying in unison with the central square, there will be movement and stress at the apex of the attached square.
If I were to draw a pic, the top of the slide and that union to the RV will get the bajeebers stressed out of it.
Can y'all's see the warping geometry here?
Any engineers out there?
