Corners of RV

Looking to figure out a way to mount something to the corners of our 1996 Itasca Sunrise 25 foot RV to keep it more stable when parked, and not feel it shaking every time someone walks around while parked. Any good ideas? Other then just getting jacks to put under the axles or something more I would have to haul with us. I know I have seen some that have scissor jacks mounted to the corners, but those were mainly pull behinds.

Thanks for any ideas.

Why not the scissor jacks. That is a cheap fast solution. You can raise and lower them with a drill motor so that your not spending all day winding on the jacks.

Scissor or similar stabilizer jacks is what you want. I've seem them on Class C's as well as trailers.

Can I mount them up high enough so that they will just be there on the corners? I have a friend who uses them, but has to drag them out each time he parks.

I installed 4 scissor jacks (6000lbs capacity each) to the frame and use a battery operated impact driver with a 3/4" socket, works well. Been using this system for the last 10000 miles of driving and camping.
