Find a good welding shop and have a set of ramps made out of aluminum. If you know the weight of your unit they will know how heavy to build them also if you figure how far that you can drop the front of the trailer and you wont have to go 36 inches to level. You will have to come up with a way to keep them from sliding maybe a back stop or something to secure them to the ground I don't know if you have a cement pad or gravel.

If the RV has been prepped (propane shut off, drained and not plugged in) I think you would be ok. The fridge is a big concern (it should be level for operation), slides if you have them could bind if not level for operation. Just a final note: block and chalk her up good and tight.

I'm sorry if I was unclear that I had already explored the option of changing the topography of the parking area and did not make it clear that is prohibited by state and federal law (as well as an engineering problem). We did what we were allowed to do and put tar and chip down (and fudged a little with the grading to the most we could without attracting official notice.)

I was hoping someone knew of an alternative to changing the pad site. I've used railroad jacks to hold stick built houses us successfully and used them to move buildings. There are some jacks on RV sites but I am not sure how or if they would work here.

I am also unclear how important it is to have the RV level when not in use. We are new RV owners. What harm is caused by letting it sit at an angle? I know what happens to houses out of plumb but not RVs that are presumably designed to be flexible.
