Question New to a Class C how to LEVEL it???

Just picked up my 2015 Forester so excited . I need help in the leveling department, I have it parked in my driveway which slopes down, when I tried the auto leveling, the front wanted to come up off the ground (which is on the down slope). I would appreciate any help in this area. Do I use blocks of wood to drive the front tires on then level, or do I put the wood under the levels? I am assuming the rear needs to stay on the ground with the chocks due to the emergency brake. Please help, I'm not new to camping but new to having to do it on my own.
Thank you for any replies I appreciate the help...

Congrads on your Forester, on the leveling I would look to leveling it first, then put something under the front tires to take the stress off of the axle while it's parked in the drive. I am currently looking into a 4 point system on my class C and trying to figure things out. Good luck.

If the jacks can level the unit, I'd use blocks under the tires. I've had to use blocks under the tires and the jack pads in extreme situations.

FWIW, I can get better results by using the manual feature on the jacks. Just make sure you don't twist the frame. Take each jack up a little at a time.
