tilting 8313ss

I'm having a strange problem with our new tt, wondering if anyone else has had the same.

When we stored the trailer it appeared to be tilted a couple inches to passenger. I assumed it was a bump in the spot.

We just went camping, and had to put the passenger side wheels on 2 blocks on a visually level site to get it level.

The next morning, it seemed to be tilting driver about 1.5" (a little more than a block).

What could be causing this? Has anyone else seen something like this?

Trailer year and model. You said site was visually level, but did you roll a ball across it and check? Doesn't matter at the moment what it looked like, did you put a level on it and check it? I'm not trying to be short or smart, but you gave a very vague description. Put the passenger side on two blocks. Were they on inch blocks, or two in blocks, or something else? Since you said next morning was tilted the other way, about 1.5 inches, I can only assume 1 inch blocks. Now, did you put the stabilizer jacks down? If not, probably the water shifting in the holding tanks, especially if you took showers. Best guess at the moment.

It's a 2011 rockwood 8313ss.

We used both a level on the floor inside the tt, and a level affixed to the outside. (wanted to make sure the outside level hadn't shifted).

The blocks were those orange lego blocks used for levelling, I think they are 1".

We did put the stab jacks down after setting up on the blocks, so overnight they were down.

I'm worried that there is something wrong with the suspension causing this, but it tows fine. It does sometimes look tilted in the mirror, but now I'm super sensitive, si who knows.
