Leveling

Ah...good point. As new campers, we know we have a list of events under the "been there, done that" category. About a month ago we were camping in a State Park and it began raining about 5:30 AM on the pull-out day. We started checking radar on our phones and realized that it wasn't going to clear up anytime soon (in fact it rained over 3" right there that day). So I was able to put a check next to "Hooked up during a Monsoon" on the list. We were very pleased that when we pulled in the slides a very minimal amount of water was carried inside; my wife just dabbed them up with an old towel and we were set. I required a bit more dabbing to dry off! LOL

Place (2) more jacks in front of the (Front Tires) on the square beam. This will reduce the (Bounce) and the slide tilt (Some). Place jacks under your steps also,this will reduce the (Leverage) motion also! Youroo!! PS- Jammers & V-Lites are prone too (Leaning Tower of Pisa) issues!!

Excellent idea! I will pick up a couple of jacks for the beam as suggested. The dealer guy warned us about putting jacks under the slideouts, but I didn't think about putting them under the axle beam. You have the front kitchen model Vlite, nice! We opted for the front bedroom and have a real walk-in closet in the wedge. Lots of storage.
