Leveling procedure

To all you expericenced MH owners with leveling jacks: Is there a recommended process when leveling my MH. ie: one side first, back first, front first or one at a time, high side first or low side first. I'm sure with all the expertise out there, there is an easy step by step process?

Thanks, Ed

Per the instructions on our leveling system if you are leveling manually you level front to back first then side to side. On our Georgetown the jacks work in pairs, fronts together, rears together, left or right sides together. Never lift the rear tires off the ground as this negates your parking brake.

Jeeper, I rarely disagree with you but I think I do this time. Level side to side first because you need to more the trailer; blocks under the wheels. Then level front to back with the tongue jack. Then put down your stabilizers. Remember, the stabilizers are just that; not levelers. Maybe it makes a difference if you are leveling a motorhome vs a trailer. Ah, I see it IS a motorhome that is metioned. So, maybe we are BOTH RIGHT!! HA!

Bob, he is talking about a motorhome not a trailer. The procedure for the motorhome spelled out in the instructions for our leveling system is to level front to back first then side to side.

Surely you are correct though for leveling a trailer, I have no idea what way to do that. Good that you laid it out anyway though as I am sure someone would have asked that next.

Yes. You are correct Jeeper. I missed that it was a motorhome at first. Hope all is well with you. Bob
