2015 Cherokee 304BH Twisted?

Need some advice. I purchased a 304BH that I am living in full time right now. I have not been able to get both ends level? The lot is on a slight slope with the rear higher than the front. I have been unable to get the front and rear level. One or the other but not both? This weekend I even leveled both axles left to right and front axle to rear axle. In other words I have more blocks under the front (lower) axle than I do the rear. Leveled the trailer front to back with the tongue jack. As you would expect the trailer floor was level in the rear and in the middle. But the front right is a good 1.5 inches lower. So much that water will not drain out of the shower. If I level the front the rear is unlevel. Any suggestions? Frame looks straight when I eye-ball it.

I wish I had a good answer for you, but I really don't. I do know the frame will flex quite a bit, depending on the way it is set up. Keep in mind, you are taking a good bit of the weight that is sitting on the axles off and are supporting it on four corners with the stabilizer jacks. That will cause the frame to flex a bit. I hope this makes sense, I am not real good at physics.

Twisted even when just on axles and tongue. I have about decided the floor framing was not installed level. Not sure what to do if there is even anything I can do. Will have to level front so shower pan drains properly. This will leave the rear bunk room out of level. Best choice I guess.

I haven't contacted them yet. I live in it and it will be tough to take it in for service and leave it.

when we haul our 304bh in the rain, which has happened twice now, the water splashes from the tires up through the kitchen slide out and floods the kitchen. We have quite a mess when we open it back up! It's on it's way back to the dealer again for this.
