Stop the rockin !!

I have a '99 Pace Arrow and when we camp, my wife nags all the time about the rocking of the coach.
I have the jacks down until the coach starts to rise but still get the rocking from side to side, like when I sit down in the slide out, or go down the steps.
I tried the last trip to put bracing under the steps (no help).
I thought about sisor jacks under the frame.
Need help before next spring and another year out.

Larry, even ours does it and we're a lot heavier than your unit. Even with the air suspension down all the way and the jacks solidly planted we still get some movement.

Hi Larry & Rita,
Our wives must be related. This is what I do to minimize coach movement.

1. Initial level is done with a minimum of jack extension.
2. I then raise the coach for 3 seconds.
3. Over the first day/night the wife may tell me there is too much movement.
4. I raise the coach another 3 seconds.
5. Upon receiving additional complaints (don't always get them) I raise the coach another 3 seconds.

I have found adding additional weight to the jacks, removes much of the motion.
