Now I Know

I left the Georgetown for the winter without putting boards under the wheels, I didnt think it would be this long without using it. You guessed it, one side is sunk down too far to just drive away. Any problem with lifting it up with the levelers to put a board under the wheels?

It can be done, but I'd be concerned that if the ground is that soft that the jacks will also sink in. I'd put boards under the jacks. Make sure you lift it evenly - all 4 jacks need to be on the ground. Good luck!

You could try putting a roof shingle on top of the board for some added traction.

That's what I would do. Use a large surface under the jacks, lift the coach then put some boards under the wheels and drive off.

If you can't get the wheel all of the way out of the hole, you might have to try jamming some class 5 or something under the wheel. Or, put concrete blocks (or something of that nature) under your jacks along with the board.
