Stablizing arms/bars for Redwood 2019 3901MB

I tired searching, but could not find an answer. We are looking into getting stabilizing arms (like JT Strong jack stabilizers for our fiver. Has anyone owing a 3901MB or similar in size added this to their unit and if so, what di you buy? Any reviews would be great. I swear it feels like an earthquake sometimes when my spouse walks around.

How far are your jacks extended?? Using blocks under the jacks to limit the amount of their travel will help.
We're parked for the Winter and have enough blocks to keep our jack travel to only 4 or 5 inches and it makes us pretty solid. Impossible to make it rock solid without putting the whole unit up on blocks.

The front landing jacks are about 11" and the remaining jacks are about 12-13". We have a couple of plastic blocks under the jacks. I've read the stabilizer arms are the best for stopping the movement, but I am willing to try more blocks and shorten the jacks to see if that helps. Wood blocks or can concrete blocks (ie pavers) work?

The older style 5ers (before Level-Up) with just the electric landing gear and rear stabilizers could really benefit from JT Strong Arms, but not so much with the Six Point Jack system.
There are a few that have added them, but I would try reducing the stroke on the current Jacks first before spending the money.

Totally agree with M&A, but personally would use Lego type plastic blocks or wood rather than concrete blocks.

We have steadyfast stabilizers on my rl and they work great to take about 90% of the movement out. As said above keeping Jack's short helps a.lot

I am using the Anderson blocks under mine and it has taken almost all of the wiggle out of it.
