Most of the instability is not because the jacks are not strong enough but that there are not enough of them. What I do is put a hydraulic bottle jack under the axle mounting plate on each side which reduces bounce from the trailer bouncing up and down on the axles that are designed to move.

  • Strong Arm Jack Stabilizer system for travel trailers is a one time, permanent installation that virtually eliminates chassis movement in fifth wheels and travel trailers
  • Stabilizers telescope into place when the jacks are lowered
  • Turn of the "T"- handle on each stabilizer locks the system in place for a rock-steady RV
  • Stabilizers retract with the jacks

the kit comes with 6 stabilizers
4 go front to back
2 go left to right

they say to install the 2 lateral ones in the front

on my AS22fb, the spare tire is in the way in the front area
there is room for them in the rear.

my spouse wants them there also, as she does not like the wobble when washing up in the rear bathroom

here is there install manual

go here and click video to see the OEM install them

job done

rear stabilizer now installed

the front are the easiest.
the lateral ones do NOT fit in the front as the spare tire is in the way

the rear lateral stabilizers are easy to bit in .

the two hardest ones are the rear front to back stabilizer

in the as 22FB, the black tank is very close to where the mount go under the AS.
the curb side was mount just ahead of the black tanks
the road side had to be next to the black tank as the grey dump pipe limited where it could be mounted.
i had to cut odd 1" of tubing to make it fit in the stored/travel position

my wife LOVES it. She tested it washing her face and other shaky tasks. she felt little to no movement

this was a VERY useful install

you can get them off amazon
The JT Strong Arm Jack Stabilizer system is for travel trailers and is a one time, permanent installation. It virtually eliminates chassis movement in both 5th wheels and travel trailers

make sure you get the travel trailer version and NOT the 5th wheel version
