Wink Stabilizer scissor jacks

I have a 2019 Gulf stream Ensbruck 28 ft travel trailer. The stabilizer s are scissor jacks attached to the frame.
Question: How or what can I do to stop the shaking when you walk inside when the jacks are down? I do 1 turn after the jacks contact the yellow blocks so they a fairly snug.
I have the yellow blocks I use under the jacks. It also looks like there is only 1 place the jacks are welded to the frame.

Thanks
I might have posted a similar request some time ago so excuse me if I did(short memory)

One thing you can do is to place more portable jacks under the unit until it's meets your stability requirements.

Valterra makes a "universal stabilizer" that you place under a frame rail and then use a ratchet strap to add tension by pulling the legs toward each other. In concept it seems reasonable but I have not yet tried them. They only add 6lbs of weight each and look to be about $40 each.

See if your tires are moving a bit when you walk (have an assistant look at the wheels). X chocks might help. I know our trailer seems a bit more stable when using those, especially when using blocks to level the tires and unable to use all of the normal chocks.

VaGeneric, Yup, the X Chocks did the job. Thank You. They took 90% of the wobble out of the trailer, I also used a scissor jack on each side in the middle of the trailer and that took the rest out.
Thanks again for the valuable info.

Am glad you fixed your problem, but anyone else reading, I have found that if I put blocks under the jacks so they don't extend down so far, it helped in stabilizing my TT.
