One more question. I am going to unit this weekend to do this. Now I know that i will put in the slides and jack on the frame with a bottle jack. Should I hook the unit up to my truck or will I be ok with jacking with the front landing gear down on the ground?? Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated. Just want to make sure I do not look like the campground idiot and do something stupid. Thanks again
You don't have to hook it to the truck to jack it up but if you hook it to the truck you may as well use the truck to pull it on the piece of wood
I hear ya but that would mean I have to disconnect everything (water, sewer, satellite, power,... I just want to make sure that I am OK jacking the unit up with the front landing gear down supporting the unit. Wasn't sure if that is a no-no.
My dealer places the jack under the U-bolts on the axle. I did this yesterday on my 320 to put in metal valve stems & to get the tires balanced. I put all slides in & it was not hooked to TV. I did have tire chocks in place. I jacked one side & left that side sitting on jack stands very close to the U-bolts, while I took the tires to my auto shop. I returned & did the other side. Everything worked great but my small 6 ton floor jack had all it wanted on each tire. That surprised me. I guess I need to take my unused 6 ton bottle jack back & get a larger one. It seemed the flex in the springs was no more than going through a large chug hole in a campground or the roads.
