That is exactly the point. It its that uneven it certainly can sift and be very costly. My rule is all six are on the ground Or I find s new campground. I do not like my airbags hanging in the air either. I have been told by F L to never do that ever. Let see it rain then see hoe secure you feel. My vote is move. If you want to built a wooden platform remember you are supporting 33000 plus lbs. a couple of 2x4 s are not going to cut it.

Equalizer says do not raise your coach off the ground!!! I carry wood ramps if I get in this situation. If the coach shifts you will destroy a $5000 jack system and will probably also not be able to close main slides.

For the time being, I used my yellow blocks and drove the rear wheels up on those.
I should be able to run into town tomorrow and get some boards

unlevel site

So for reference what is the site number that is so unlevel? It is hard to tell how level some sites are from the ODNR site to reserve campsites. We are considering a trip to Salt Fork as it is close for us. We don't need to be sleeping up hill though! Thanks!

are you using the auto level? You can do much better manually in a situation like that.

Lower the front until they just touch the ground.
Then lower the rear enough to make it comfortable but still keep the tires on the ground.

G29. It's deceiving as it doesn't "look" bad.

Dan:

I always start with auto level and then touch up manually.

The yellow blocks seem to be working for now.

Thanks.

Salt fork is a great park for thanksgiving if weather is good! No one there so you have the place to yourself to hike.
