How to level a popup

Hello, newbie here with a question about leveling a popup. I have a new 2011 Palomino M 6149 that has the independent suspension. I am curious if I try and level it with blocks, side to side, wont the suspension swallow the blocks first? I am also curious if leaving the suspension compressed in such a way could damage it. I am probably over thinking this, but so far I have been out once and it was level.

Thanks.

I don't know about the independant suspension...I had a Palomino PUP 2100 that we camped with for two years here in Middle TN and the north Georgia area. I never had to use blocks to level it. The spots we camped at were level enough to put our PUP on. Level up with the tongue and put the stabs down...I guess we were lucky that we never had too.

Your independent suspension will not absorb the blocks and even if they happen to compress a little, that's what they're designed to do. Your leveling with blocks will NOT damage them in any way.
