Jack Stabilizers

Greetings, Campers!

We've set up the Cougar on its second outing. It seems quite stable side to side, but rocks a little from front to rear. Does anyone have any suggestions to reduce the sway?

Thanks,

Thats because of the suspension springs at the axles. Using wheel chocks like the X chock does help, but not eliminate.

keep all jacks as short as possible, and utilize a really good wheel chock, like the x jack as stated. i made a set out of a couple of 4x6 and redi rod. it works, but i am sure that the x jack is a whole bunch lighter. some people stretch out the jacks as far as they need to and that really don't help your rocking motion.
