Well, you're not mentioning how you're doing it (commands!), so otherwise we'd
just shrug our shoulders and say, "you've tried everything, so I guess nothing
works!" Sorry to say that trjconv is one of the most difficult tools to provide
help with, so without actually seeing the results of what you're doing, the best
advice is to just keep playing with it. Sometimes my fitting procedures have
taken four or five iterations of different options!
I have done some simulations of multiple peptides/proteins and the like, and a
simple -pbc nojump has always worked just fine. Otherwise, try -pbc mol/res
under GMX 3.3.3. Centering probably won't work very well, since there are
