Stopin the rockin

I have posted on here before about the side to side rocking of our cllass A, as many people (have),
While at CW yesterday I bought a pair of heavy duty scissor jacks to snug up the sides. I'm thinking we have done everything, airdump, built in jacks but DW says there is still enough rocking when we walk, it makes her sea sick.
My thoughts are to find a solid place mid coach or up front and gently snug up the jacks, one on each side.
I can't belive someone with an "A" hasn't tried this.
Befor I unpack them I want to get some feedback. no reason to unpack if you have tried and it failed.

Don't pray for a blessing--Pray to be a blessing.

I have no experience with those jacks. But the coach rocking does bother me when I am laying down. My husband walks on his tiptoes when I sleep, and when he is laying down, I walk how I want. Lol

Hi Larry & Rita,
The jacks you purchased will not help. The coach has too much weight for the jacks to make any difference. That being said, there may be hope. If you have a 3 point jack system (2 in the rear and 1 in the front) one could try to stabilize the front corners. That might help.

If you have a 4 point jack system and all 4 jacks are firmly planted on the ground with the coach weight on the jacks, there is no hope of improving that situation.

Now this is MOHO, and after looking at lots of class a's, we were shocked at how many of them had very weak floors. Just something you might want to check out on your own rig.

I did it on a Class C that didnít have any jacks for leveling or stability. I placed one jack between the frame in front and a tubular steel cross beam with a jack on each end in rear, homemade 3 point system. Motorhome jacks are mounted to the frame which is toward the center and the walls go out further adding weight on either side. When you walk you can get movement as sort of a seesaw effect especially with a weaker floor as noted. You would need to mount a cross beam to the frame that went out as far as the walls and mount the jacks to end of it to really see any improvement. With my Class A between the solid floor and putting jacks down beyond just being level I don't get that much movement.
