I found dropping the feet via the pins and then as you said raise them two inches evenly works well.
God, I hope you meant "Herk!"

I found that you can "lift" the outer sleeve a bit to mate with the optimum hole. You shoud be able to get the legs within an inch.

Been caught like that myself. I do spell check but no spell checker in the world will catch the wrong, though correctly spelled, word!

Herk, with this phone's autocorrect I make the same kind of error every day. You never know what this thing will settle on. Every time I type "like" it uses "Luke"... go figure.

You can buy a screw leg for one side and adjust as needed. I just take a few peices of 1/2" plywood just to get it close. I also have used a longer piece of 2 x 6 that I put under and then using a piece of 2 x 4 across at one end and slide it as a wedge so that it takes up the slack.

I like the 1/2" plywood idea. I think that will do the trick. Thanks everyone for, once again, solving a fellow RVers woes.
