Love the colors on the redwood. It pops in the campgrounds. Congrats.

I'm not that lucky.
Some of us have medical issue and require a rock solid unit. Your lucky and don't have any so no need to lecture those of us that need or even just want to eliminate wiggle/rocking.

I use the x jacks on both sets of tires you may need to adjust them to make them a little tighter. I also use a tripod on my king pin it makes a huge difference. when I let down my rear jacks I only let them down a few inches I use 2 bags of plastic level blocks on each side, I don't even take them out of the bags.

Many like responses on the other forum Redwood RV Forum - redwood shaking.
Including similar suggestions about you supporting the slide outs...

We had terrible interior movement for over 8 years of fulltiming and Dutch did everything he could to stop it. Adding a Bi-Pod and even a 2nd set of arm jacks at the very rear of our Carriage. While these things did help it wasn't enough for me. For interior movement and when the washer is on spin cycle it was still pretty bad.
We added 6 permanently installed stabilizers almost 8 years ago and that solved our problem. Hugs, Di.

It's been my impression that it rocks more when my wife walks around than when I do which is exactly the opposite of her impression. If you are getting a bounce, those x-chocks worked well for me. I put a pair on and the model I have has a way to put a lock through. I have a tri-pod on the front which takes some load off the landing jacks and stops side-to-side movement. Something you might try is shortening the length of the legs by using blocks. As an example, if you could shorten a leg by half, you would need twice the force to get the same amount of movement or, with the same force you would get half the movement.
