Not one suggestion of letting the air out of the high side tires?

DITTO!!! Prior to, I would use the interlocking blocks to level. I would actually wiggle around within my site to find the closest to level spot I could find. Steve

i use treated wood under the tires unitl i get level side to side. then i drop the landing gear and adjust one so that both touch the pad (also wood) at the same time when locked. i have one foot that has a screwed adjustment on it.

This has been a question of mine while we are shopping for a TH. 99% of our camping will be in fields at race tracks (mx and harescrambles). Over the past year at the races with our enclosed cargo, I have paid attention to where I might park such a rig that is even close to level, even arriving early mid friday (race on sunday) it would be tough.

Auto level sounds like the way to go.

Side to Side

Before you pull onto your camping spot, if different every time..I carry an 8'-0 2x4 framing stud...lay it on the ground, place a level in the middle, go to the low or high side....raise the low end to get the your 2x4 level...measure the distance on the end you have raised to the ground...build your boards, blocks whatever to the height..pull your 5'er up on it...should be level from side to side..then I attack the front to rear, which is like any other rv...Have used this system on the T/T and now on the Crusader...
