Block and level park model

I was wondering if anyone had some instructions on how to block and level a 39' park model. It was delivered to my property, in Nov, got it stuck in the mud and I want to move it and level it in the spring, when it dries up. Not sure where to start, front or back. Thanks

What I would recommend is get a level. If it's on dirt make sure tires are on some kind of board to slow down sinking in the dirt over time cause of the weight of the trailer. I would then put boards under each weight load location. The more places that take the weight the less it should move. Hope this helps.

Thanks, Scubie, would it be easier to start leveling in the rear or the front, or does it matter? NorminN.B.

I would think side to side first.

There is no correct answer you have to do it sync. If you don't you may go to far up on one support then you can not get another support to extend far enough do left that side to level.

Leveling can be a pain, just make sure in the end the camper is level and even weight on each support jack.

I made 2 foot high blocking out of 4x4's. I made 8 of them. 2 in the very back, 2 behind the wheels (where the bathroom is) 2 at the front right behind the hitch hookup, and the last 2 in front of the wheels.

Thanks, Scubie. I will do the same as you, only I will use cement blocks, on a plastic pad underneath.

we have our 30f cherokee at a seasonal site whe we moved it in first thing we did was get it as close as possible to leval from side to side wich wasnt tuff at all if you have a few different sizes of lumber we then levaled it front to back which can be done with the front jack i then lowred the screw jack down onto 6x6x2 planks of treated ceader then after checking to make sure everything was still nice and leval i then went underneith with 4 of those screw jackstands and somemore 6x6s i placed two directly infront of the axels and two directly behind the axels and the other two inbetween the front jacs and the front axels these were turned just enough to put pressure on the frame when all done i have also installed 4 screw into the ground tie downs like those used in moble home parks our camper is nice and solid and doesnt rock or move it is also a good prctice to dive down ther every so often and check things out espsallt check for any seiiling good luck
