If you are that worried about it. Block under the tires and also your levelers to keep everything even.

Thats just it, I am trying to determine if I should be worried about it. If it is ok, then I would just prefer to punch the auto button and be done with it.

I have a SunSeeker 3100SS with hyd. levelers and don't worry about it. I just had them installed this summer. I was told by manuf. if feeling some movement inside then blocks under feet to limit amount of extension of ram to stabilize more.

99% of the time I hit power and auto and call it done. I am hooking up power so I can put out the slide while leveling.

I have a Georgetown 378 and the front wheels are lifted occasionally (even manually) and it does not present a problem. Someone mentioned "read your manual". All I have ever seen in any manual (lippert or Big Foot) is to not allow "ALL" the wheels to come off the ground. No mention of just front or rear individually. Oh well, nuff said. Go for it gmacklem.

I've never been able to level my other 34' class A MH w/o front tires off the ground for months at a time. Sometimes as much as 6" on top of stacked 2x8's...I do whatever it takes. I've had no troubles with frame twisting, buckling, shearing. I've never raised the rear off the tires...the RV has a "rake" like a funny car. Always had to bring the front way up. I keep 100lbs in the air bags inside the coil springs.

This is all I have on Big Foot the comparison of what can or can not be done with each system. As you can see they do not recommend a Big Foot to change a tire because you can twist the frame. If a front jack sinks at all you can twist that frame. They are made to stabilize the unit not to pick it up without blocking.

This is marketing so I expect it to be a little deceptive. I would agree you couldn't change a tire if you jacked up just one side, but if you popped up front or rear it woudn't twist the frame. As for the jacks sinking, I use pads to avoid that unless I am on concrete. I am still looking for some official statement as to what should be done.
