I have the Lippert electric things that really help a little. I realize I am in a TT when parked and don't expect it to be rock solid so I am happy. I would really like the auto hydro jobs like the ones on the big MH's, but then I would want the big MH to go with them.

To be upfront and of full disclosure, Lippert Components is a sponsor of my trip. Having stated that up front I will also say I would not recommend anything that didn't work. Lippert installed the electric stabilizers with the strong arm unit. I am in a wheelchair. I can tell when a quarter hits the floor. I can tell you true level without a bubble. The stabilizers and strong arm kit doesn't remove all the side to side and corner sway, but it does stop 90% or better in my opinion. This is on a 33' toy hauler. Only thing I don't like about them is how far under the RV the front t-bolts are. Even with the reacher they are touchy for me to teach. Again, I am in a wheelchair. For someone who could kneel on the ground no sweat. Just my options.

Heard of some people putting an extra pair of scissors jacks in the middle of their trailer. Especially for longer, light-weight trailers with light-weight frames.

In a post about a year ago, Mtn Dave did this on his TimberRidge:

"To remedy the jiggle in my Timberridge I added a pair of scissor jacks just ahead of the axles. This made a real big difference, Almost no movement."
