Have any of you noticed the wheel that you pull up onto a leveling block will look a little funny while it is sitting a little higher on the leveling block?

Oh I did. My local township only permits 18' wide driveways. The parking pad is off to the side of the driveway. So, to back in, I have to practically jackknife to swing it into place.

Let me tell you a secret.... (you and 15000 members) ...... before I move it again, I'll have a can of white spray paint handy. I'll paint a "box" around the TT passenger side tires. Then have a helper place dots beside the TT tires every few feet as I pull out. When I return, I just line the tires up with the dots, and back into the "box" perfect placement even alone.

I have two 4 x 4 blocks with angles cut on them and have painted around them to mark their place on the drive. When we leave and the oldest wants to use that portion of the drive, he just puts the blocks by the garage and I know where to place them and still allow about a 4' walkway. TOWTA just goes on about her business while I park, unhook, etc.
