Here's some pics of mine. Bought off of Amazon for about $150. It took about 30 mins to install them.

Cliff from Ill (at the Rally last summer) is staying near us in AZ and installed two heavy duty screw jacks at the rear (they have the bonus room Redwood) and he says it takes out all the shaking at the rear (especially when running the washer on spin cycle) Think I'll try it. He just shimmed them with wood blocks on the ground.

Is he staying at the Mesa Spirit RV Park by chance? There's another Redwood here that has installed jacks at the back of their coach similar to mine.

We noticed that the long overhang lends a lot of jiggle to ours on our first trip and having had stabilizers at the rear of our previous 5er (shown below) had to do something quick

so I too did the simple approach -
northern tools had a hand crank 2k jack that I place under the rear hitch and tighten it up...
helps with the jiggle,
but true outrigger stabilizers are needed to stop the slight side to side we still get...

just lost all interest in improving anything else until the issues are resolved...
