Georgetown rocking when jacks extended...Normal??

Well I've been noticing that my Georgetown rocks a bit when m dogs or me move around inside( dogs are 150lbs and lets just say I use to box heavy weight..lol).. As I posted a few days ago..I'm on a unleveled site.. Front right tire is off the ground and the rest look like there close to coming off the ground..if that makes a difference...also check the pump reservoir and with the jacks fully deployed there is about an inch left in the reservoir is this OK??

Any opinions or thoughts would be appreciated..Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a normal reservoir for all actuators extended. Reservoir level is checked with all actuators retracted (slides and levellers) and should be approximately 1 inch from top.

Yep.
Normal. Drives me crazy but have not found a way to stop it. I do believe it is less when the tires are all on ground and the suspension can help stabilize a little.
