levelling

Once we have parked our 5th wheel and gone inside, we realize that it is not very level. What is the best way to level now that we are set up? Is there a trick to it or do we just have to re-hook and level out?

no tricks, you have to hookup again and re-level, if it's side-to-side.

the only way around this, is if you have a hydraulic self-leveling system. some of the newer 5th wheels have this.

When travelling I always carried a couple pressure treated 4 foot 2X8's and a PT 1X8 to sandwich in between them if needed.

I wrote this for my sister after watching her boyfriend crank away at the stabilizers to get level:

I personally use the orange lynx blocks for leveling.
