I don't know if it's because we're on thick gravel sites or if something else contributes to being out-of-level over time but this solution would be a lot easier than hitching up and re-leveling every 2 days.
What sort of blocks do you put under the stabilizers?

We use wood blocks for the stab jacks (2x6's) and I level the wheels with Lynx blocks. I guess it doesn't get that far out of level after seeing some replies from's no more than 1-2 degrees over the course of 4 days. Maybe it's just my OCD showing through

rhyno 76 how far out of level do you get after 4-5 days camping?? I've stayed put for up to 2 weeks without having to relevel. I do put a large foot print board under the jacks before leveling to prevent sinkage, and if the ground is soft also put boards under tires to prevent sinkage. You don't have to keep the trl perfectly level all the time, a little off plumb is OK.
